The number balls drew near to the prize balls yesterday, like Saturn and Jupiter in the sky. It was the most bizarre draw in recent Christmas Lottery History. Rare was the draw for the year of coronavirus. Slow, slow, monochord, more Jupiterian that Saturnian, but still not sad. In a very difficult year, the goddess fortune distributed millions of joy to winners across the Spanish geography. Total prize money distributed by the drums was 2,408 millions euros, which is 28 million more than in previous years. Fat lag (72897), did not arrive until 12 :02. The soeteo lasted for almost five hours.
There weren't any queues of people spending the night out in the open at the Royal Theater in Madrid. Yes, there were some people who tried to get in on the action at the theater's doors. The draw was the most unusual in recent years, and there was no public at the stalls. Half as many journalists were present as at other times. They were all wearing masks, had mobility limitations and were surrounded by cleaning and protective screens. They were not aware of the bizarre characters who provide color through their costumes.
Manoli Sevilla, aged 84, arrived at Real dressed in great pomp and a huge hype for the eighth year. She arrived at seven o'clock in the morning. She didn't do it before, "for fear of being fined." She claimed that 20-30 entries could have been approved. "Keep your distance, as in some other acts," she said. Juan Manuel Lopez, another regular, also came from Leon. As usual, he was dressed in his "Bishop of Lottery" costume and attended the seventh annual event. Manoli Sevilla owned more than 30 tenths. Juan Lopez had only bought eight.
Galicia's one lottery player and Andalusia's other, both hid their tickets in their neighbourhoods and gave clues to their neighbors so they could find them before the draw. Fernando Toubes (owner of Galicia Bookstore, and holder of a lottery ticket on Rua Ourense in Lugo), decided to give away "a series of tenths" for free. He placed them in various locations in San Antonio and gave clues as to where they were. Jesus Ibanez did it in Almeria as well, hiding another ten percent among street furniture. Almeria's lottery administrator, number 13, explained that he had done the same thing in Almeria and endorsed the slogan of the campaign for the Extraordinary Christmas draw: "Share as ever." Share like never before.
The La Chasnera gas station, in Granadilla de Abona (Tenerife) distributed luck again. Two tenths each of the Gordo, 20 tenths each of the fifth prize (86986), and some less than the fifth fifth (5771) were sold by him. Granadilla was home to 10,000 people and received the fortune in 2017. The fortune was divided among a tenth, 22 of the second, and 20 of fifth. Shortly thereafter, El Nino fell. In 2018, Granadilla distributed 26 more tenths from the Gordo. He also distributed nine from the fourth prize, and thirteen from the fifth.
The Association of Relatives of People with Alzheimer's and Other Dementias of Novelda distributed 500 tenths to friends and residents of the city. This amount is approximately 2.4 million euros. Carmen Martinez Escolano is the director of the association. She said each year they pick a different number, and that this time it was "purely chance." The association provides care for 48 people living with Alzheimer's disease. "We're freaking it out, it's unbelievable," said Carmen Martinez Escolano, the director. She kept a tenth, and gave several to her family members.
All TVs connected to Real in the early morning. However, Canal Sur Television cut its broadcast at 8:30 a.m. in the first day of strike called for by the RTVA workers committee. This was just as the draw special broadcast began. . Workers protested the 14 million euro budget reduction agreed to by Vox, Ciudadanos, and PP.
