Hopefully in the future anyone will be able to play.  My method of payment isn't available with them.

        In past years, the lower-tier prizes were calculated by matching the following possible combinations.  I assume it is the same this year, so you should be able to figure out if you won something without looking through a huge list.  However, even if you don't think you won something, wait for the lottery service to tell you.

        • Get one digit higher or lower than the 1st Prize Ticket Number
        • Get one digit higher or lower than the 2nd Prize Ticket Number
        • Get one digit higher or lower than the 3rd Prize Ticket Number

                        I haven't heard anything yet but it looks like the prize might be a refund according to this from Wikipedia:

                         

                         

                        Ticket numbers and prizes

                        The Christmas Lottery is based on tickets (billetes) which have 5-digit numbers, just like the regular drawing of the Spanish national lottery. Due to the enormous popularity of the game, each ticket is printed multiple times, in several so-called series. A unique 5-digit number is printed on each ticket and on the subsequent series of that ticket. For example, the ticket with the number 00001 is printed 180 times under different series numbers. Each ticket costs €200. Because this may be too expensive, the tickets are usually sold as tenths (called décimos). The price of a décimo is €20 and the payout is 10% of the published prize.

                        Serie - Each billete is printed up many times as with different serie numbers. Billete - €200 each - An entire ticket of a 5-digit number, which consists of 10 décimos (tenths of a ticket). Décimo - €20 each - One tenth of a billete. Most people purchase décimos.

                        On a private basis, or through associations and other organizations, it is also possible to buy or be given even smaller portions of one ticket, called "participations". Many organizations buy tickets and divide them up and sell them as participations to their customers or employees. Usually, the price of those portions is incremented by a supplement that is paid as a donation to the intermediary organization. Participations are made by writing the number and the amount paid, and signing it as proof of participation. If the ticket is a winner, anyone holding a participation will be entitled to the corresponding amount, depending on the amount they paid.

                        Most Spanish people hold at least a small portion of a lottery ticket in the Christmas Lottery each year, even if they do not gamble during the rest of the year. This includes tickets exchanged with family and acquaintances, or participations sold by one's employer.

                        In 2012 there were 180 series of 100,000 billetes (from 00000 to 99999) at 200€ each. If all of the tickets were sold, ticket sales would be €3.6 billion, and prize payout would be of €2.52 billion (70% of ticket sales). For a single serie the prize structure was the following:[1]

                        QuantityPrizeDescriptionTotal

                            I had two different ticket numbers that won nothing. I now wait until next christmas when I shall play 2 tickets again.

                            Congrats rdgrnr on your hit.

                            Thanks but I haven't confirmed anything yet.

                            I can get on the site and log on but when I try to get to my account page I get this: Server Error in '/' Application.

                            I'll try again tomorrow.

                              I haven't heard anything yet but it looks like the prize might be a refund according to this from Wikipedia:

                               

                               

                              Ticket numbers and prizes

                              The Christmas Lottery is based on tickets (billetes) which have 5-digit numbers, just like the regular drawing of the Spanish national lottery. Due to the enormous popularity of the game, each ticket is printed multiple times, in several so-called series. A unique 5-digit number is printed on each ticket and on the subsequent series of that ticket. For example, the ticket with the number 00001 is printed 180 times under different series numbers. Each ticket costs €200. Because this may be too expensive, the tickets are usually sold as tenths (called décimos). The price of a décimo is €20 and the payout is 10% of the published prize.

                              Serie - Each billete is printed up many times as with different serie numbers. Billete - €200 each - An entire ticket of a 5-digit number, which consists of 10 décimos (tenths of a ticket). Décimo - €20 each - One tenth of a billete. Most people purchase décimos.

                              On a private basis, or through associations and other organizations, it is also possible to buy or be given even smaller portions of one ticket, called "participations". Many organizations buy tickets and divide them up and sell them as participations to their customers or employees. Usually, the price of those portions is incremented by a supplement that is paid as a donation to the intermediary organization. Participations are made by writing the number and the amount paid, and signing it as proof of participation. If the ticket is a winner, anyone holding a participation will be entitled to the corresponding amount, depending on the amount they paid.

                              Most Spanish people hold at least a small portion of a lottery ticket in the Christmas Lottery each year, even if they do not gamble during the rest of the year. This includes tickets exchanged with family and acquaintances, or participations sold by one's employer.

                              In 2012 there were 180 series of 100,000 billetes (from 00000 to 99999) at 200€ each. If all of the tickets were sold, ticket sales would be €3.6 billion, and prize payout would be of €2.52 billion (70% of ticket sales). For a single serie the prize structure was the following:[1]

                              This is about as complicated as vtracs.

                              I was going to buy a share, but I thought the world was going to end.  I am happy it didn't end because I need more time to buy losing lottery tickets.

                              I think the spanish started the rumor the world was going to end.  Might have been Cortez.

                              I am sure it brought down sales.

                              I hope I dont sound sarcastic, but CONGRATS on your refund!Smash
