    Great, the prize pool is all prizes combined.

    The top prize of El Gordo is not 2,3bil, its 4M that many, many people share.

      You do not understand the El Gordo lottery -- which is actually a raffle.  If you need an explanation, please see my previous post about this:  https://www.lotterypost.com/news/297958/4422095
