Here are the results for the 2022 El Niño €700M Euro Lottery on Thursday 6th January. Did you Win?

The prizes from the Lotería del Niño 2022 can be collected from today, Friday, 7th January. There is a three-month deadline from 7th January 2022 to collect all lottery prizes.

The draw took place today at 12 p.m. in the Spanish capital of Madrid and the prizes were drawn in order, from the smallest prizes to the largest. This is different from the El Gordo Christmas Lottery, where the prizes are drawn at random and the jackpot prize can appear at any time.

The El Niño 2022 Lottery Draw distributed 700 million euros in prizes. The first prize went to number 41.665, which went entirely to the city of Logroño, which is the capital city of the La Rioja province, situated in northern Spain. The winners will receive a prize of €168,000 euros for each tenth after tax.

The second prize number was 44.469, with a prize of €75,000 euros for the tenth (7,000 euros will go to tax while €68,000 will go to the winner) and the Third Prize of 19.467 with a prize of €25,000 euros for the tenth.

How the Lotería del Niño draw works

The Lotería del Niño works with a system of five different drums. There is a drum (with 10 balls, from 0 to 9) for each of the five numbers in the tenth and another drum with the amount of the prizes. After each round, the numbers are replaced. The draw begins with the lowest prizes, five two-digit withdrawals, 14 three-digit withdrawals and two four-digit withdrawals, before then drawing the main prizes in order of third, second and the first prize, which is known as El Gordo (The Fat One).

Patrons could buy tickets for this lottery until 10 a.m., 2 hours before the draw takes place. Although it is often advised to buy tickets fast as certain numbers are snapped up pretty fast.

Although this lottery does not distribute as many prizes or as large as El Gordo de Navidad, in the Lotería del Niño you have more chances to win because the prizes are distributed more compared to the larger jackpot lottery. Last Christmas, €2,408 million euros was dispensed in prizes and on 6th January €700 million came out of the draw.

It is less money, but be careful with the math: while in the Extraordinary Christmas Lottery Draw, 15% of the ticket holders are awarded, but in the Lotería del Niño draw, almost 40% of the numbers are winners.
