The El Niño lottery is the second most popular in Spain, with the first being the 22nd December El Gordo draw. Tickets for the El Niño draw are available until late 5th January 2022. The draw takes place on 6th January, an important public holiday for Spanish citizens, and is drawn live from Madrid at midday CET.

The El Niño Lottery in 2022

The draw for the Lottery of the Child 2022 contains 700 million euros in prizes. This 2022 celebrates the 81st edition of the game since it was officially licenced in 1941. To see a full list of past numbers and winners see our History of Jackpot Winners below. As has been the case since 1999, this draw will take place on the 6th of January at 12:00pm, and will last approximately half an hour. Quite the change compared to El Gordo’s 3 and a half hour annual run time.

It is true that in this Extraordinary Draw of the Children's Lottery there are roughly 2 more opportunities to win more prizes than in the Christmas Lottery raffle, but also that the amount you can win is somewhat lower. With El Niño it is easier to make your money back, but this should not dissuade players, since some of the prizes could in fact change your life or get you out of a financial mishap.

The draw for El Niño distributes two million euros per series, known as a full ticket or 200,000 euros per tenth if you win the first prize, compared to 4,000,000 euros per series, 400,000 per tenth with El Gordo. There is also a second prize of 750,000 euros per series and 250,000 euros third prize per series.
