A full El Gordo ticket is called a billete. It is a sheet of ten smaller tickets called decimos. Decimos are sold individually or a player can buy the full ten. It’s the usual pick 5 numbers from 1 to 54 and a bonus number from 1 to 9. The bonus number is drawn from a separate drum. Match all 6 numbers and the jackpot is yours. The El Gordo Lottery also does a bonus summer draw in July. A typical jackpot runs around €140 million. I could do some serious shopping with that kind of budget.
