### Explaining Reintegrations

In the context of Spanish lotteries, including the El Gordo draw, "reintegro" refers to a refund or reimbursement of the ticket price. It is a specific prize category that ensures participants have the opportunity to recoup the amount they spent on the ticket. These numbers, known similarly as Reintegrations, as well as Refunds or “Reintregros” in Spanish give back the total sum of the ticket purchased back to the player.

In Spanish raffles draws, including El Gordo, a specific number from 0 to 9 is randomly assigned to each ticket as the "Reintegration" number. If the last digit of your ticket number matches the "Reintegration" number drawn, you win the "reintegro" prize, which is the amount equal to the price of the ticket purchased.

For example, if the "Reintegration" number drawn is 4 and the last digit of your ticket number is also 4, you would win the "reintegro" prize, which would be the price you paid for the ticket.

The "reintegro" prize ensures that even if a ticket does not win any of the main prize categories, participants still have a chance to recoup their losses. It adds an extra level of excitement and potential reward for lottery players to gain back what was spent.

### Reintegration Prizes

15 euros per tenth, for the tenths whose last figure is equal to first prize, 150 euros per series. There are 9,999 total reintegrations available with a last digit extraction.

15 euros per tenth for the tenth whose last figure is obtained in the two final special extractions of a figure, 150 euros per series.

### Understanding Hundreds and Endings

In the Spanish lottery draws, the concept of "hundreds and endings" refers to additional prize categories based on the last two or three digits of the winning ticket numbers. This provides more opportunities for players to win prizes.

After the main prizes are drawn, additional smaller prizes are awarded based on specific combinations of the last two digits of the winning tickets. These combinations can vary depending on the particular draw and the rules set by the Spanish National Lottery.

For example, there may be prizes for tickets with the same last two digits as the first, second, or third prize-winning tickets. There could also be prizes for tickets with the same last digit as any of the main prize-winning tickets.

The specific prize amounts for the "hundreds and endings" category may vary from draw to draw, and they are typically smaller than the main prizes. However, they provide an additional chance for participants to win based on the last two digits of their ticket number matching specific combinations determined by the lottery organizers.

It's important to note that the exact details and prize breakdown for "hundreds and endings" can change between different El Gordo draws. Therefore, it is always best to refer to the official information provided by the Spanish National Lottery or the specific draw's organizers for accurate and up-to-date details.

### Prize Numbers for Hundreds and Endings

75 euros per tenth for 99 remaining numbers from the first prize pool, 750 euros per series.

75 euros per tenth for 99 remaining numbers from the second prize pool, 750 euros per series.

75 euros per tenth for 99 remaining numbers from the third prize pool, 750 euros per series.

75 euros per tenth for the tenths whose last three figures are the same as those of first prize, 750 euros per series.

30 euros per tenth for tickets whose last two figures are the same as those of first prize, 750 euros per series.

### Explaining Approximations

In the El Gordo lottery, Approximations or "aproximaciones" in Spanish, refer to additional prize categories that reward tickets that are close in value to the winning tickets. These prizes are based on the numbers immediately above and below the winning numbers in specific categories.

For each of the main prize categories (first prize, second prize, third prize, etc.), there are several "aproximaciones" prizes. The number of "aproximaciones" prizes can vary depending on the specific draw and the rules established by the Spanish National Lottery.

Let's consider an example of "aproximaciones" in the El Gordo lottery. Let's say the winning number for the first prize in a particular El Gordo draw is 12345. The "aproximaciones" prizes would be awarded to tickets with numbers close to 12345. Here are a few examples:

- First "aproximación" prize: Ticket number 12344
- Second "aproximación" prize: Ticket number 12346

In this case, the "aproximaciones" prizes are given to the tickets whose numbers are one digit off from the winning number in either direction. Depending on the game, there may be a minimum of 2 aproximaciones for the first and second prizes, with more available depending on the draw. It is advised to check the prize breakdown on El Gordo Lotteries to find the prizes for each individual draw.

These "aproximaciones" prizes provide an additional chance of winning for tickets that are very close in value to the winning number. They offer some consolation to participants who narrowly miss out on the main prize but still have tickets with numbers in the immediate vicinity of the winning number.

### Approximation Prizes

2 approximations of 21,000 euros each per series (2,100 euros per tenth), for numbers before and after the first prize.

2 approximations of 12,000 euros each per series (1,200 euros per tenth), for numbers before and after the second prize.

2 approximations of 6,225 euros each per series (622.50 euros per tenth), for numbers before and after the third prize.

## Understanding the Tenth and The Series

In the context of the El Gordo draw, the terms "tenth" and "series" refer to different aspects of ticket distribution.

### The Tenth

A "tenth" (décimo in Spanish) is one-tenth of a full ticket. Each ticket in the El Gordo draw is divided into ten equal parts, and each part is known as a tenth. This means that when you purchase a tenth, you are acquiring a fraction of a full ticket. If your tenth wins a prize, you will receive 10% of the prize amount associated with that winning ticket.

### The Series

A "series" refers to a full ticket consisting of ten tenths. When you buy a series ticket, you are essentially purchasing all ten tenths of the ticket. If any of the tenths in your series wins a prize, you will be entitled to the full prize amount associated with that winning ticket.

To summarize, a "tenth" is a fraction of a ticket, while a "series" represents a complete set of ten tenths. The price of a tenth or a series depends on the specific draw and the type of ticket you are purchasing. When playing the July Extraordinary draw the average cost of a series ticket is €150 while a tenth ticket costs €15.

## How Tickets Work

Let's take an example of the El Gordo Christmas lottery draw:

In the El Gordo Christmas draw, each full ticket consists of 10 tenths. The total price of a full ticket varies each year, but for the sake of illustration, let's say it costs €200.

If you purchase a tenth of a ticket, it means you are buying one-tenth of the full ticket. So, in this example, the price of a single tenth would be €20 (one-tenth of €200).

Now, let's say your purchased tenth of a ticket wins a prize. If the winning ticket's prize amount is €4,000,000, you would be entitled to one-tenth of that prize, which would be €400,000 (€4,000,000 divided by 10).

On the other hand, if you decide to buy a full series ticket, which consists of all ten tenths, you would pay the full ticket price, in this example, €200. If any of the tenths in your series wins a prize, you would be entitled to the full prize amount associated with that winning ticket.

So, buying a tenth allows you to participate with a fraction of the full ticket price and receive one-tenth of any prize won, while buying a series ticket gives you the chance to win the full prize amount associated with a winning ticket.

May luck be on your side when you participate in one of the fun to play El Gordo lottery draws! May your numbers align and fortune smile upon you. Hope you enjoy the excitement of the draw. Good luck!
