At Lottoland you can bet on the outcome of this draw and win the same prizes as if you had bought tickets for the official draw in Madrid.
You choose a five-digit ticket between 00000 and 99999 that you think will be drawn on July 7th in Madrid. You can buy a full ticket or a share of the ticket if you prefer.
If you choose the ‘full ticket’, you will receive the full cash amount for that prize tier. If you bought a share, or shares, you will receive a percentage of the prize money equivalent to your share.
