World’s biggest lottery gives out €2.3 BILLION to lucky punters in Madrid

Spain's popular El Gordo (The Fat One) Christmas lottery, the biggest prize pool of any lottery in the world, handed out €2.3 billion ($2.73bn) to winners across the country on Friday. The 'Fat One' itself, or the final winning number, is worth €680m ($806m), though the prize is spread across thousands of tickets. This year the lottery gave out 25,000,000 prizes. Standard tickets cost €20 for... Еще one tenth of a prize, and people traditionally share tickets with friends, family or workmates to spread their chances. A Cadiz lottery administration managed to hand out both first and second place prizes to its lucky customers. The lottery's rules allow multiple purchases of the same lottery number, so it is still not clear how the winnings will be distributed.
