El Gordo de la Primitiva background information

La Primitiva was founded by King Carlos III way back on 10thDecember 1763, as a way for the Spanish government to raise more funds, without the need to raises taxes, La Primitiva (meaning ‘primitive’) got its current name after a new ‘modern’ lottery launched to give it some competition in 1812. The lottery ran until 1862, but was then resurrected by the Spanish government in 1985. 

Run by Loterías y Apuestas del Estado since 1993, the El Gordo de la Primitiva lottery draw used to take place once per month, but since 1997 has been a weekly event, scheduled for every Sunday at 21:30 Spanish time. Since 2005, the minimum guaranteed prize pool is €5,000,000.
