Lotaria do Natal
Lotaria do Natal - the lottery of Christmas - is a special game which takes place in Portugal to mark the yuletide season. The game is based on the weekly Lotaria Classica and is similar to the Spanish draw El Gordo de Navidad in the way that it works and creates thousands of winners.
Held on 26th December, Lotaria do Natal has a prize pot which greatly exceeds most other lotteries. The odds of winning are also more favourable than many games as players only have to match a five-digit number, or just part of a five-digit number, to win prizes.
