The luckiest numbers of the Spanish Christmas Lottery

Spanish Christmas Lottery: all the prized "Gordos" and statistics



If you have a hunch that after such a difficult year luck will finally be on your side, you may be interested in knowing all the statistics of the Spanish Extraordinary Christmas Draw as well as some interesting facts , since this  is the most important draw of Loterías y Apuestas del Estado because of its traditional history and popularity.

The Extraordinary Christmas Draw is, without any doubt, the most awaited draw of the year and the most traditional one in Spain. Every 22 of December the children of Colegio San Idelfonso (San Idelfonso school) are in charge of singing the awarded numbers. Since 2010, due to the large number of people who come to watch the draw, this draw stopped being held in the Loterias y Apuestas del Estado hall of draws and it has been moved to other locations in Madrid with more seating capacity, such as the Palacio de Congresos (Congress Center) or the Teatro Real (Royal Theatre).

  • Would you like to find out which ones were the luckiest numbers, or if the “El Gordo” number has ever been repeated?


In this post we are going to give you information about all the awarded numbers, the main statistics of the Christmas Draw to this day, and all the information you need to know so that you can choose your winner number in the most special draw of the year. Let’s go!


Has the first prize of the Christmas Draw ever been repeated?

The answer is YES, but this circumstance has only ocurred with  2 numbers:


  • The number 15,640, awarded in 1956 and 1978.
  • The number 20,297, awarded in 1903 and 2006.
