Although going to the lottery administration is still for many people the best way to seek luck, it is also possible to play from the computer, tablet or mobile phone accessing the website or the official application State Lottery and Gambling (@loterias_es). Doing so is very simple and you will be able to participate in the National Lottery, Primitiva, EuroMillions or Quiniela draws, among other available games. It is also possible buy tickets and special tickets as, for example, those of the traditional Christmas lottery or the Children’s lottery.
How does the online lottery work?
To play any raffle or buy a ticket, the first thing you have to do when entering the official page is sign up. You must provide your personal data and establish a password, which will be the one that will help you access your account on later occasions.
The next step is select the draw in which you want to participate. Then, you will have to follow the instructions that appear, explained clearly and intuitively. For example, to choose a tenth or to play a bet from the primitive, you can choose the numbers that will make up your combination yourself or choose an “automatic number”, in which case a random combination will appear. Next, you will have to choose the amount of tenths what you want, with a maximum of ten.
The usual way of making payments for the purchase of tickets or placing bets is through the “Lotobolsa”, a kind of deposit that you can fill with the amount of money that you consider appropriate, of which your purchases will be subtracted. In the same way, the prizes you win, depending on their amount, can be paid here directly and, when you request it, they will go to the current account you have indicated.
Playing the lottery online is safe and does not imply commissions or expenses of any kind. However, this only happens if we talk about the official website of State Lotteries and Betting (SELAE). Keep in mind, in addition, that you will not have the lottery ticket or the paper receipt in any case. Every time you make a purchase or bet, you will have your receipt electronic, exactly with the same validity as a physical one and which you can only access through the account you created when you registered. On the official website you will also find all the information you need about draws and results.
