Spain La Primitiva History

For literally hundreds of years, Spain’s La Primitiva was created by the Spanish Royal families to increase the Spanish Treasury funds.  After nearly 100 years, in 1862, La Primitiva was cancelled by royal order.  It wasn’t until  August, 7, 1985 that the popular game was reinstated, now run by Organismo Nacional de Loterías y Apuestas del Estado(ONLAE).

How it Works

Playing the famed La Primitiva is very straightforward and uses the popular 6/49 system to select numbers.  Players choose six numbers from one to forty-nine and are also given a special Reintegro number automatically added to their ticket.   A seventh bonus ball is drawn from the same drum which is used to settle secondary prizes.  

How to Win

If you have been lucky enough to match all six winning numbers you’ll win the jackpot.  Matching the Reintegro number and a combination of numbers will drastically boost your winnings.  There are additional prize categories to be won making this lotto very attractive.

Spanish lottery prizes that exceed €2,500 are taxed by 20%.
