History of La Primitiva

 

The oldest lottery in the world, La Primitiva dates back to the 1700s. In fact, even its name means ‘The Primitive One’,  in English; a reference to its longevity. The modern version of the lottery we play today was introduced in 1985.

 

How La Primitiva works

 

La Primitiva follows the standard 6/49 lottery format with an extra 8th number called the Reintegro or the ‘refund’ number.

To win the jackpot, you need to match all 6 chosen numbers plus the assigned Reintegro number.

The Reintegro number is not chosen by you, it is randomly assigned by the Spanish National Lottery organisers after your entry has been validated on their system.

To play, La Primitiva lottery players will select 6 numbers from a possible 49. During the lottery drawing the organisers will draw 8 numbers – 6 numbers plus a bonus ball (or “complimentary” ball). 

The Reintegro is drawn from a set between 0 and 9.

 

La Primitiva jackpots and rollovers

 

La Primitiva draws start at €3 million and will continue to roll until the top prize is won. Rollovers happen frequently and allow for the jackpots to grow to giant amounts.

The biggest prizes won on La Primitiva include €25 million in 2005 and €26 million in 2007. The biggest ever La Primitiva jackpot record was set on 15 October 2015 when one lucky ticket from Spain won a staggering €98,440,117.36! 

In accordance with Spanish law, a government tax of 20% is levelled on all lottery winnings over €2,500.00.

 

How to play

 

  • Choose 6 numbers from a possible 49 numbers

 

The lottery organisers will draw 8 numbers in total:


  • The first 6 numbers you have chosen
  • A “bonus” ball - a randomly drawn number
  • The Reintegro number - a number randomly assigned by the Spanish National Lottery organisers after your entry has been validated

Your first entry confirmation email will not contain your Reintegro number. It will take up to 24 hours for the receipt of your Reintegro number once the draw your ticket is entered into becomes the next available La Primitiva draw on our system.

To win the jackpot, you will need to match all 6 chosen numbers and the Reintegro number.
