April 7th, 2017 by admin

The Lotería Primitiva de España (‘La Primitiva’) was first drawn on 10th December 1763 with ticket sales of 187,500 reales and a prize fund of 75% that amount. At that time, it was simply called ‘Loteria por Números’ or ‘lottery of numbers’, but in 1812 a new, more modern lottery was introduced, and the original game became La Primitiva until it was abolished in 1862.

How can you play a game that was abolished 150 years ago? Because in 1985, La Primitiva was resurrected by Royal Decree, and the first draw took place on 17th October 1985. Sales for that draw amounted to 473,213,425 pesetas at a price of 25 pesetas per ticket, and the draw has taken place on Thursdays ever since.

about La Primitiva Lottery – In the year 2000, ticket prices reached 150 pesetas, which became €1 when Spain joined Europe’s single currency. While it’s easy to interpret the name as meaning ‘primitive’, it’s fairer to translate it as simply meaning ‘original’ or ‘earlier’, and it simply means that La Primitiva predates the ‘modern’ lottery launched in 1812.

La Primitiva is one of the oldest lotteries of our time, dating back to 1763 when the Spanish king introduced “Loteria Real”, the royal lottery. La Primitiva is the modern, updated version of this classic lottery.

How to Play

La Primitiva is a 6 from 49 lottery, similar to the original rules of the UK National Lottery and the German game 6aus49. Players select six numbers on the play slip, which draw they want to enter (Thursday or Saturday, or both) and how many draws they want to play – you can choose one, two or four, or unusually, you can play 12 or 48 draws in advance for a slight cash saving on your ticket price.

In each draw, six main balls are selected, along with two bonus balls, named the Complementario and the Reintegro. The Complementario is similar to the ‘bonus ball’ in some other national lotteries, and only applies to players who have matched five main draw numbers, boosting their prize from about €2,300 to about €45,000. Your Reintegro number is randomly assigned and is significant if you match no main draw balls, or if you match all six for the jackpot. If you match only the Reintegro number, at odds of 1 in 10, you will be refunded the price of your bet. Match all six main balls and the Reintegro number too, and you’ll receive the ‘special’ jackpot on top of your ordinary jackpot win of around €1.7 million.

Draws take place twice a week on Thursdays and Saturdays at 09:30 p.m. local time, with odds of a win starting from 1 in 10 for the refund of your bet, and reaching about 14 million to one for the standard jackpot and 140 million to one for the ‘special’ jackpot.

One of the most popular games is La Primitiva where players are required to select six main numbers between 1 and 49. Jackpots, which are worth a minimum of €3 million, are won by matching all six main numbers and the Reintegro number, which is randomly assigned to each ticket. In the event that no player matches the winning jackpot numbers, the top prize will roll over to the following draw. To date, the largest La Primitiva jackpot stands at €66.6 million and was won by a single ticket holder on Saturday 3rd August 2013.

Historic La Primitiva Results

La Primitiva began in 1763 when it was called the Royal Lottery. However, in 1862 it was stopped and the lottery wasn’t reintroduced until 1985. It is now one of Spain’s favourite lottery games.
Before November 2012 there were two jackpots. One was called the Especial jackpot and, for that, you had to have all six numbers that were drawn and the Reintegro ball. For the second La Primitiva jackpot, you only needed all six numbers. This has changed, so that there is now only one jackpot and you need to have all six drawn numbers, plus the Reintegro Ball, to win it.
