The Lotería del Niño is a Spanish lottery draw that takes place annually on January 6th  'Día de Reyes'. This date marks the end of the Christmas season in Spain and is the day when children wake up to unwrap their Christmas gifts. And for the adults perhaps there might be a Christmas gift for them in the El Niño lottery.

The El Niño lottery is organized by the Spanish government and is considered one of the largest and most significant lotteries in the country.

The name "Lotería del Niño" translates to "The infant lottery" or "The child's lottery" and is associated with the celebration of the Epiphany or Three Kings' Day. It is officially called "El Sorteo Extraordinario de El Niño", and also called "Sorteo de El Niño" or "Lotería de El Niño" or "Lotería del Niño". The Child's Lottery name is derived from the date on which it is drawn which is the anniversary of the Three Kings' arrival at the infant Jesus Christ - El Niño Jesús- in Bethlehem.

The format of Lotería del Niño is similar to the more famous Spanish Christmas Lottery "Lotería de Navidad" (nicknamed "El Gordo" the "fat one") which is drawn on 22nd December. The El Niño lottery uses the same structure with a large pool of ticket numbers, and each ticket is divided into ten shares, or "decimos."

The El Niño lottery is known for offering substantial prize money spread over numerous cash prizes distributed, including significant jackpots. The total prize pool is often very large. Though not as big as the famous El Gordo Christmas lottery, 'El Niño' has a prize amount of around 2 million euros for the winning series of tickets and a total amount of around 630 million euros in prizes. 

The El Niño lottery draw is a highly anticipated event in Spain, Many Spaniards view participating in Lotería del Niño as a tradition and a way to celebrate the Epiphany. The lottery is deeply ingrained in Spanish culture, and the draw is accompanied by a festive atmosphere.

The draw is broadcast on television, and the results are eagerly anticipated by participants across the country especially by those who didn't win anything in the El Gordo lottery. Tickets for Lotería del Niño are typically available for purchase in the months leading up to the draw. The tickets are sold in tobacco shops and lottery shops, and people often buy them individually or as part of groups.

Origin of lottery
The origins of the lottery are not quite clearly, but many date it to 1879 when María del Carmen Hernández y Espinosa de los Monteros organised a raffle to support a Madrid hospital , called Hospital Niño Jesús. This was very popular and eventually became a national tradition.

Good luck! Bon Sort! Buena Suerte!
