The minimum jackpot is 5 million (EUR). If the jackpot is not won, a rollover occurs and it is added to the following draw, increasing the prize fund each time until it is won.
The El Gordo de la Primitiva is a 5 from 54 plus 1 from 10 lottery game. In order to win the jackpot of this Spanish lotto, you need to match 5 numbers with the lotto balls drawn plus 1 number from the pool of 10 balls.
