It's a new month and that means there's another massive 84 million Euro in prizes to be won on the Spanish Raffle (Loteria Nacional Extra)!
The Spanish Raffle, Loteria Nacional Extra, comes round once a month and gets everyone excited at the prospect of winning such huge prizes and it’s no wonder that everyone now knows about this amazing raffle as The Spanish Raffle has been played for over 200 years!
With a 1 out of 3 chance of winning a prize from a pool of €84, €105, or €140 million, players all over the world flock to get their piece of the pie. Thankfully, no one actually needs to go to Spain anymore to partake in this fantastic raffle, as you can now buy your Spanish Raffle ticket right here at PlayHugeLottos.com!
Just like the Lotería de Navidad and Loteria del Nino, the Spanish Raffle draws have 100,000 tickets printed with five-digit codes ranging from 00000-99999. The 100,000 tickets are printed in 10 copies and divided into ten shares to create a total of 10 million shares.
Unlike the lottery where players choose their own numbers, those playing the raffles buy raffle tickets with pre-selected codes. Depending on availability, raffle players can buy a whole book which contains 10 tickets or opt to purchase individual shares.
Couple raffle off their four bedroomed home in Spain
A couple recently had difficulty selling their four-bedroomed house in rural Valencia, in a prime location just 20 miles from the beach and 50 miles from the nearest ski hill.
What’s this got to do with the Spanish Raffle you ask? Well, they did so by raffling the property off!
What’s even more surprising, is the fact that the newest owner paid just €10 (£7.35) for it in the raffle.
Previous owners, the Bolumar family, wanted to sell the house that they inherited two years ago and tried to do it the traditional way, listing it for €90,000. But due to the struggling Spanish property market they received hardly any offers.
It was due to the continued struggle selling the property, that they considered alternative ways to sell the house. When the thought of raffling the property came up, their interest peaked. “Raffling it off seemed interesting – people would have the chance to acquire a home for a low cost and we would still end up covering the cost,” said Bolumar.
It took the couple one year to finalise the raffle as they wrestled their way through seemingly endless amounts of red tape to obtain authorisation from the country’s tax authorities to be the first in Spain to raffle off a house.
The raffle tickets cost €10 and were sold from a kiosk in Valencia as well as online, and offered the chance to win the 141sq metre home.
32,000 raffle tickets were sold as the news spread through social media channels like Facebook and Twitter. The majority of the tickets were sold in Spain but also as far as Canada and Australia.
Those in Florida, he said, seemed to be particularly taken with the idea. “Lots of people from Florida called us, also from England,” said Bolumar. He also continued saying that, “Some of the calls that came in were heartbreaking and came in from families who had been evicted from their homes or who had fallen on tough times and were desperately hoping to win the house.”
Thankfully, by playing the May Spanish Raffle (Loteria Nacional), you will stand a chance of winning gigantic cash prizes with 84 million in prizes! That’s more than enough to buy a home in any country you want!
Don’t waste any time though, as not only is availability of the Spanish Raffle tickets important but the draw takes place this Saturday! Be part of the excitement and buy your Spanish May Raffle tickets now!
