The first draw was held on October 31, 1993, and was born with the peculiarity of holding a single monthly draw, the last Sunday of the month.
With an initial price of 500 Pts. (The equivalent today at € 3.00) players were given a double chance to participate in the game. You could opt for the purchase of a pre-printed ticket with the combination of the 5 main numbers plus the refund number. Or that it was the player who, through a ticket of different color, directly marked the combination of numbers that were to his liking.
This system was maintained until four years later, when in October 1997, the draws become weekly, but always as date on Sunday and with some important changes in its regulations.
For the following draws are determined and reserved for first-category winners the possibility of accessing a cumulative jackpot if there is no acertante in the previous draw.
On January 31, 2005, there was a significant change in the regulations, incorporating a guaranteed minimum jackpot of € 5,000,000, and up to eight prize categories, plus the refund. With what the expectations of obtaining prize increase considerably.

El Gordo de la Primitiva is basically a game of chance, in which the player has to get as many numbers as possible.
When the raffle is held, 5 balls are randomly drawn from one of the 54 that it contains, with numbers between 1 and 54.
Likewise, a ball from 10 is extracted from a second drum, numbered from 0 to 9 which consists of the key number or refund.
The player can make as many bets as he wishes, and he can do so manually by deciding the numbers himself or by allowing the system to choose a random combination.
The odds of winning a prize is 1 out of 19 (matching 2 main numbers), while the odds of winning the first category prize go up to 1 out of 31,625,100.
It may seem very distant if we compare it with La Primitiva, where the odds are 1 between 13.983.816, and much easier than Euromillions in which the odds are 1 among 76.275.360
If we look for the 10 numbers that In more occasions they have come out in the winning combinations since the first draw, we see that they are in this order from most to least: 3, 6, 18, 21, 23, 11, 34, 27, 9 and 4
While in the opposite direction, those numbers more reluctant to leave have been from less to more: 52, 50, 54, 51, 49, 46, 48, 47, 43 and 53.
Curious, right? That the numbers that have left the hype less often are precisely the highest numbers.
