An anonymous man from South Carolina in the US of the A claimed the facemelting $400 million powerball jackpot a few days ago. And you’ll be slightly annoyed with how casually he stepped into his new life. Heeding his wife’s request to stop at a convenience store to buy hotdog buns, our man arrived at the store to find that said convenience store didn’t sell hotdog buns.
With 10 jackpot prizes of 2 million Euro each and a 1 in 3 chance of winning a prize (total of 378,000 prizes up for grabs), buying tickets to El Gordo de Verano is a no brainer!
You will know all about the El Gordo Navidad by now – the 200 year old lottery that 90% of Spain plays. You have a 1 in 3 chance of winning something and there are €2.3 billion cash prizes. The draw is on Friday! And this is how you get tickets.
It started in 1812 and takes place every year on 22 December. With a 1-in-3 chance of winning a portion of the €2.3 billion prize money, 90% of Spain’s population buys tickets. It’s basically complete and utter mayhem.
