The town of Monforte de Lemos in Galicia wins the entire El Niño lottery’s first prize of EUR 120 Million. This was a portion of El Niño lottery’s total prize of EUR 560 million.
This great gambling news came on Monday when the lottery was drawn and it was announced that every winning ticket with the number 76254 is worth EUR 2 million. The tickets were sold either whole, for EUR 200, or split into 10ths (décimas) costing EUR 20 each. The total prize split by the winners was EUR 120 million.
Additionally, a unique prize was also given this year. It was EUR 40 million to the sole purchaser of décima number five, series 21. This player must be extremely thankful to their luck, or perhaps choice, as the big winning came without the need for any time spent playing online casinos.
