About Mother’s Day
The Extraordinary Mother’s Day Raffle is a new raffle lottery held starting since the year 2022. This draw is the Lottery Special for the month of May. Previously the theme changed annually. In 2021 the theme was Earth Day and in the year before the celebration focused on the emergence of spring. This year the draw celebrates mothers around the world and highlights the Spanish Mother’s Day celebration which occurs on Sunday 7th May 2023, the same day as the Extraordinary Special draw.
The draw will take place at approximately 1:00 p.m. in the centre of Madrid. On average the Extraordinary draw results are announced about thirty minutes after the draw start, with live commentary taking place both online and on live TV for people that want to follow along at home. The number and prizes are announced in order from the smallest prize to the biggest, with the final part including the 10,000 “pebble shower” for the refund numbers. This is a practice conducted twice for two different refund ticket numbers and awards prizes to up to 20,000 tickets and tenths.
The top jackpot prize is worth €1,300,000 and there is an extra Special Prize of €15,000,000 for one lucky ticket holder to a single tenth for a fraction of the cost. 100,000 tickets are available from number 00000 to 99999, with reprints available according to popularity. 70% of ticket sales go directly to prizes in every draw and a portion of each Extraordinary Special sales always go to charity and public interest projects such as education, public health and prevention research.
When is the National Lottery Mother's Day Draw?
The Mother's Day Draw is one of the Extraordinary draws of the National Lottery. It is not always celebrated on the same day, as is the case with the Christmas El Gordo Raffle or the El Niño New Year Raffle. The date that this giveaway is held depends on when the celebration it commemorates takes place so it’s important to be aware of your calendar year to year. This year in Spain the Mother’s Day draw takes place on Sunday 7th May 2023 to coincide with Mother’s Day in Spain.
If you’re wondering why Mother’s day is the draw observance in May, it’s important to note that the celebration of Mother's Day is not the same all over the world. In the United States, this day takes place on the second Sunday of May, while in the United Kingdom it is at the end of March. However, in Spain Mother's Day is always celebrated on the first Sunday of May, which is also the place that the draw takes place in the Loterias y Apuestas administration in Madrid. This year Mother's Day is celebrated on the seventh day of May and also welcomes a new month.
What are the prizes of the National Lottery Mother's Day Draw?
As we have mentioned, the Mother's Day Draw is one of the labelled “Extraordinary Draws” that are celebrated throughout the year with one or more taking place every month with the mention of a topic associated with that time, such as the Summer Holiday El Gordo or the New Year Draw. When a draw known as an Extraordinary draw (or Extra for short) is held the prizes are greater than the weekly National Lottery draws. The Extraordinary Draw for Mother's Day also includes a special prize of almost 15 million euros for a single winner who happens to play right tenth ticket. This is added the rest of the usual prizes in an extraordinary draw of this type. To see all prizes for this draw please check out our breakdown for the Extraordinary Mother's Day Draw 2023.

Since When is Mother’s Day Celebrated?
As long as we have existed we have been celebrating mum, and with good reason too! Records of celebrations, rituals and offerings have been a part of history dating back thousands of years in honour of Mothers, as a sign of respect and admiration for the creators of life.
In Greek times a feast was celebrated in honour of Rhea who was considered the mother of the Greek gods. Another goddess, this time Roman, was Cybele, who was considered the personification of fertile earth, goddess of the home, the cave, walls, fortresses, animals and nature. The Romans celebrated the festival of Hilaria in honour of Cybele during the March equinox. The Incas would celebrate the goddess Pachamama, known as the “Earth Mother”, a deity that would cultivate the soil, create mountains and cause earthquakes.
During the Roman Empire, it was first recorded that a day would be recognised as an official celebration. Pope Pius IX established 8th December to commemorate the Immaculate Conception, and by the 1900s a version of Mothers day was celebrated by almost all countries around the world. Some countries don’t limit their celebrations to a single day. In Ethiopia Mother’s Day is celebrated for three days in the autumn with a huge feast known as the “Antrosht”.
At the beginning of the 20th century, in the United States, pioneer peacekeeping activist Anna Jarvis began a fight to honour mothers, shortly after this celebration spread throughout the country, making it official that each year on the second Sunday of May a nationally recognised day take place to honour parents of the female persuasion.
With 70% of this draw dedicated to prizes, more than 100 million euros are distributed this May in the Mother's Day Draw, with the special prize of 15 million euros and a one in three chance of winning a prize, this Extraordinary Lottery is a gift that keeps on giving.
The 2022 Ticket for Mother’s Day Raffle
How much do the tenths of the Extraordinary Draw for Mother's Day cost?
Due to the fact that it is an extraordinary draw, the price of the tenths of the Mother's Day Draw is different from that of an ordinary draw such as those held on Thursdays and Saturdays on a weekly basis. Because they are also a unique draw for 2023 they are not the same as the price for tickets in the Christmas El Gordo Lottery or lotto draws like the Summer Holiday draw or the January El Niño.
To find out how much the tenths of the Mother's Day Raffle cost, you have to look at other similar raffles such as the one for Father's Day. The tickets go on sale a few weeks before the draw date on which the Mother's Day Raffle is held. Depending on where you buy your tickets you may pay more, but there are options of buying the tickets online or getting them from a Spanish lottery kiosk or administration. If buying a ticket within Spain a tenth for the Mother’s Day raffle game costs €15, If wanting to buy a series ticket, also known as a full ticket of 10 tenths, the price will be €150 if buying in person. When you play online you may find that extra service fees are incurred depending on which country you play.
Different Mother’s Day Celebrations
Around the world Mother’s Day is celebrated in different ways and at different times of the year.
In Thailand Mother’s Day is set to celebrate Queen Sirikit who is regarded in the country as the mother of the people. The king of Thailand is celebrated on Father’s Day within the country. It is typical when the celebration occurs in August for people to feature portraits of the queen in their homes and in private and public spaces for the celebration of women.
In Indonesia the celebration of Mother's Day takes place on 22nd December (the same day as El Gordo Navidad in Spain) and was first celebrated in the late 1950s.
In Argentina the celebration occurs in October to coincide with the holy day of the Virgin Mary. This commemorates the immaculate conception of the baby Jesus.
In India Mother’s Day is largely celebrated with flowers. Marigolds, roses, lotus flowers and the typical garlands are sold out of street vendors throughout the day. The celebration occurs on the second Sunday of May.
In Bulgaria, as in other European countries, the celebration of Mother's Day takes place on 8th March, a date that coincides with the celebration of Women's Day. In this way all women are celebrated, whether they are mothers, grandmothers or even future mothers! Women meet with their friends to celebrate this tradition in a showcase of freedom for women.
In South Korea there is no Mothers Day celebration but rather a group commemoration known as Parents Day which occurs in May. The traditional gift consists of a small bouquet of flowers made of various colours that children give to their parents.
