This Thursday, December 22, the day of the Christmas Lottery, it is easy to predict what we are all doing: some with their faces glued to the television screen, others will have the radio at full volume for the entire office to hear and There will be some even following the draw on Twitter, each and every one waiting for luck to fall on our tenth, or all of us who have wanted to play. Although the best Christmas gift we receive is to win the Gordo, and thus have the check for €400,000 per tenth in hand, the chances of winning it are 1 in 100,000, according to a study by mathematician Daniel Pérezático.
It is true that when you invest in a tenth, you always do it thinking big, fantasizing about spending €400,000 on a home, a car or even going around the world. However, if the jackpot has already come out, we remind you that 2,520 million euros are distributed in this extraordinary draw. So nothing to turn off the television if you do not win the jackpot or the second or third prize.
But the prizes do not end with the jackpot, the fifth prizes are divided into 8 different numbers, €6,000 that you could win only with the payment of 20 euros that costs a tenth. And if not, you can always be lucky enough to get a pinch with a stone (€100 per tenth) and let’s not forget the approximations of the first three prizes, with which you can also win another €100.
And what to do if you get a pinch of the Lottery?
