The Sunday Lotto, as you would expect, takes place every Sunday! It also boasts excellent odds of winning jackpots that are often worth well over £5 million! The Sunday Lotto is based on Spain’s El Gordo de la Primitiva draw.

How does betting on the Sunday Lotto at Lottoland work?

When betting on the Sunday Lotto at Lottoland you are betting on the outcome of Spain’s El Gordo de la Primivita draw. You pick the numbers you think will be drawn in the same way as if you had entered the official lottery draw. At Lottoland, you win the same prize money for each prize tier that the official lottery operator offers, including the jackpot, and you receive your prize money as if you had actually played the official lottery.

How do I choose a line and place a bet?

To place a bet on this draw, select 5 numbers from the main pool of 1–54 and then select a key (bonus) number from 0-9. You can also select the QuickPick option (Quick+1) and this will choose your numbers at random. After this click submit. This will take you through to a checkout — at this stage just click ‘Confirm and proceed’ to place your bet.

How do I win the Jackpot?

You will win our jackpot if your 5 main numbers and key number is the same as that in the official El Gordo de la Primivita draw.

Can I win all the same prizes betting on the draw with Lottoland?

You can win all the same main game prizes betting on the draw with us as those available in the official draw, including the jackpot.

How much does it cost to bet?

A single bet costs £1.50. A line with the DoubleJackpot feature costs £3.

How does the DoubleJackpot feature work?

The DoubleJackpot feature allows you to bet for twice the official lottery jackpot. So, for instance, if the official El Gordo de la Primivita jackpot is £6m and you bet on the outcome with us and activate the DoubleJackpot feature, you can potentially win £12m. The prizes for all other tiers will remain the same. You will pay double the price of your normal bet to activate the DoubleJackpot feature. So, if you wish to bet on Sunday Lotto with the DoubleJackpot feature you’ll pay £3, instead of £1.50.
