Winning Numbers of the Christmas Lottery

Ahead of tomorrow's eagerly awaited draw of El Gordo the Spanish Christmas Lottery, we take a look at the winning numbers from all of the previous editions.

While plenty of people will simply play whichever number happens to be available at their favorite local bar, many Spaniards choose theirs carefully. A common question you’ll hear people ask each other is “En qué termina?” (What does it end with?) While choosing the exact five numbers you want to play is quite difficult (although you can do so online), many people will at least try and make the last digit or two mean something.

The number most preferred by those seeking luck is one that ends in 5 ... El Gordo de Navidad has terminated in this number up to 32 times, followed by 4 and 6 (27 times). 

However, if you want to win the prize, you should avoid some endings, since it has never fallen on numbers that ended in 09, 10, 21, 25, 31, 34, 41, 42, 43, 51, 54, 59, 67 , 78 and 82. In addition, the 1 is the least fortunate ending, since it has only come out 8 times. In fact, one number does not matter more than another, although superstition is superstition.

The most repeated endings have been 85 (7 times), 56 (6), 64 (5) and 95, 58 and 40, which have been awarded four times each. In three different years, El Gordo fell to numbers ending at 297 and twice each El Gordo was number 15640 and 20297.

The superstitious should also avoid a few thousand, as no jackpot ever started with 27, 37, 39, 41, 44, 51, 64, 67 to 75, 77, or by numbers between 80 and 99.

The earliest first prize was drawn in 2004: at 9.15 in the morning, thirteen minutes after the start of the draw, the number 54600 surprised everyone by being the El Gordo of that year when only 39 balls had been drawn.

This table lists all of the numbers that have been awarded the Jackpot prize of the Christmas Lottery throughout history, which has been held continuously since 1812.
