Historia de los juegos de Loterías y Apuestas del Estado

La Primitiva

Esta lotería fue propuesta por Don Leopoldo de Gregorio, Ministro de Hacienda, más conocido como Marqués de Esquilache y creada durante el gobierno de Carlos III. Es el primer juego oficial que se conoce de Loterías y Apuestas del Estado.

La Quiniela

Según SELAE las quinielas nacen el 22 de septiembre de 1942, basadas en las apuestas deportivas de la liga española de fútbol. Otra versión dice que el origen de la quiniela se remonta al año 1929 y fue en Santander donde nació de la mano de Don Manuel González Lavín su creador, que regentaba una taberna en Calle Alta nº22. No cabe duda de que, entre todos los juegos de Loterías y Apuestas del Estado, este es el que prefieren todos los amantes del fútbol.
 

Euromillones

Este sorteo europeo nació un 13 de febrero de 2004. Ese fue el año en que se celebró el primer sorteo. Donde participaron España, Francia y Reino Unido, que fueron los primeros países que se animaron a ponerlo en marcha.

Bonoloto

Allá por el año 1988, un 28 de Febrero nació la BonoLoto. Lleva entre todos nosotros 29 años siendo la lotería con más sorteos semanales, la más barata y la que más probabilidades ofrece de ganar el primer premio. De todos los juegos de Loterías y Apuestas del Estado, este es uno de los grandes favoritos.
 

El Gordo de la Primitiva

Surgió en 1993 como una de las modalidades de la primitiva. Se juega cada domingo, pero al principio solo se jugaba el último domingo de cada mes y los boletos venían pre-impresos como los décimos de Lotería Nacional.

El Quinigol

El Quinigol llegó en año 2005 como la nueva apuesta deportiva del siglo XXI. Sin embargo, si echamos la vista atrás comprobamos que sus orígenes proceden de La Quiniela, ya que ésta en sus comienzos consistía en pronosticar los resultados en base a los goles de los equipos que jugaban cada partido.

Fun Facts about EuroMillions Winners from the UK

  • UK is on the same first position when it comes to how many EuroMillions jackpots the Brits scooped (104 in February 2020), but it is home to some of the biggest winners, including the famous ones such as Adrian and Gillian Bayford who took home a record amount of €190 Million in August 2012, or Colin and Chris Weir, whose cashed in €185 Million in 2011.

  • The first British big win in EuroMillions happened in 2007, when a jackpot of £35 Million went to Angela Kelly, a 40-year-old former Royal Mail postal administrator.

  • The UK is home to two of EuroMillions jackpot records — the €190,000,000 prizes won in October 2019 and August 2012.

  • The UK is also home to one of the biggest EuroMillions lottery winning syndicate of all time – the Magnificent Seven, a group of seven Hewlett-Packard employees from Liverpool, who took home £45 Million back in 2010.

Millionaire Maker Raffle

The UK was the first EuroMillions participating country to add a raffle to the draws of the most popular lottery in Europe. The Millionaire Maker Raffle was launched in 2009, the first code being drawn on November 13 that year.

Two years later, the UK National Lottery decided to mark the holiday season with a special event called the Millionaire Month. A total of 50 millionaires were minted between November 25 and December 23, 2011, each one scooping an awesome £1 Million prize. In 2012, the same raffle had a special way of celebrating the Olympic Games in London, making 100 millionaires in one single night. This marked a new world record for the most millionaires made in one night.

On May 31, 2013, the £1 Million Every Month for a Year event took place. Instead of the prize being worth £1 Million, this draw offers one lucky player a prize of £12 Million, paid in twelve £1 Million monthly installments. In July the same year, another 100 Millionaires draw was held.

The year 2014 marked a name change, the raffle switching its name from Millionaire Raffle to Millionaire Maker, the possibility to add non-cash prizes being added. This is how the Mega Friday, currently known as the Mega Week was born.

The Mega Week Raffle

A special addition to the UK raffles, Mega Week is a special draw held in the last week of each month, on both Tuesday’s and Friday’s draws. The Mega Week adds various luxury non-cash prizes, which usually consist of exotic holidays, to the £1 Million prize delivered within the Millionaire Maker raffle on every draw. Whether it is a ski vacation in the French Alps, a beach holiday on a Caribbean island or a stylish city break, Mega Week is certainly spicing up the world of the EuroMillions raffles.

EuroMillions HotPicks

HotPicks is a supplementary game in the UK EuroMillions that takes place on both Tuesday and Friday draws. EuroMillions players can enter HotPicks to win prizes up to £1 Million. There are 5 play formats in HotPicks and each of them costs £1.50/line: Pick 1, Pick 2, Pick 3, Pick 4, and Pick 5. Players can choose 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 numbers from 1 to 50 to enter the draw.

The 5 numbers in HotPicks are the main numbers in the EuroMillions, but the HotPicks prizes are separate from those in the EuroMillions. Players who choose Pick 1 must match 1 number from the 5 drawn EuroMillions numbers to win the HotPicks prize. Please note that players who enter Pick 2, Pick 3, Pick 4, or Pick 5 must guess both, and respectively all 3, 4, or 5 numbers to win the HotPicks prizes. If you play Pick 3 in HotPicks, but only guess 2 numbers, you will not win any prize. In the table below, you can see the prize divisions in the EuroMillions HotPicks:

Ireland EuroMillions

Ireland participates in the EuroMillions draws thanks to the UK National Lottery. Irish participants can watch the draw live on TGA. Besides the original EuroMillions game, Ireland offers a supplementary draw called EuroMillions Plus, which gives Irish fans of the pan-European lottery the chance to win more prizes with their EuroMillions numbers. When purchasing a EuroMillions ticket, Irish players can decide whether to play also EuroMillions Plus. During the draw, five numbers are randomly picked and prizes are awarded to players whose original EuroMillions numbers match 3 or more of the five EuroMillions Plus numbers drawn.

The Irish version of EuroMillions is very similar, in point of format, to the multi-national lottery, but it does not have the Lucky Stars. This makes the odds of winning a prize much higher. There are three prize tiers with a guaranteed top prize of €500,000 for those who match the 5 main numbers.

France EuroMillions & My Million

France is one of the first three participating countries in the EuroMillions lottery as the official French Lottery operator – La Française des Jeux is one of the game’s founding partners. The FDJ, UK’s Camelot, and Spain’s Loterias y Apuestas del Estado joined forces back in 2004 to create a pan-European lottery that would offer bigger prizes and more exciting draws than the national lotteries. The idea itself was born long before the first EuroMillions draw – in the 90s, but it became reality only in 2004, with the participation of only three national lottery operators at first, but the EuroMillions family got bigger and bigger.

The Française des Jeux is in charge of the EuroMillions operations in France, Monaco, the overseas territories, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Martin and Saint Pierre and Miquelon. In French Polynesia, the responsibility of the EuroMillions operations fall to the Pacifique des Jeux. The jackpot is also expressed in different currencies depending on the territories: euros for France and the overseas departments and CFP francs for French Polynesia.

France is also the host of the bi-weekly EuroMillions draws taking place at the National Lottery’s headquarters at Boulogne Billancourt. Since 2012, the EuroMillions draw is also broadcast on TF1.
