The Spanish Christmas Lottery, known as 'El Gordo' in Spanish (or 'The Fat One'), has the biggest prize pool of any lottery in the world. It is a national lottery game organized every year since 1812. Because of the unique way El Gordo is played (the expensive tickets are broken down into 10 smaller tickets), it can be quite sociable to play the Spanish Christmas Lottery.

I would like to see US State Lotteries organize a such a Christmas lottery in 2012. It would be fun and raise additional revenue for the states.

We all get a lot out of lotteries!

    I think we should all write to our state lotteries and suggest that they get together and organize a 'Fat One', for next Christmas. Most people would participate, including people who don't usually play lotteries. It would be fun and beneficial to state budgets.

      I think all the state lotteries would lobby against a federal lottery.

        I am not talking about a federal lottery, I am talking state lotteries getting together and organizing a 'Fat One' lottery for next Christmas. It would be as popular in the US as it is in Spain. Also, state governments could do with the extra revenue.

          We already have 'The Fat One Too Many'.

          Does the count?
