El Gordo approaches

Its not long now before the biggest Spanish lottery of the year is drawn, This is El Gordo where 3,245 million Euros worth of tickets are sold, There are a total of 185series of 85000 tickets usually split into 10 decimos and sold separately. Participants stand an 85% chance of loosing there money, 10% will recoup there outlay and only 5% will be better off. I've just seen an old chap pass €200 over the counter at the loteria office, he probably saves up for his tickets all year.
