The Lottery Office is excited to announce the addition of its latest licensed lottery, La Primitiva! For every ticket our players buy in our La Primitiva lottery, we buy a matching ticket in Spain’s La Primitiva, which is one of the oldest active lotteries in the world. It was established back in 1763 and like a fine wine, it’s only going to get better with age. Originally named ‘Loteria Real’ (‘Royal Lottery’), it was resurrected by royal decree in 1985 after being on hiatus since 1862, and renamed ‘La Primitiva’ (‘The Primitive’ in Spanish).
We’re pleased to be able to offer our customers the chance to win from this popular, well-established lottery, with its unique game format, substantial prizes, modest cost and innovative side game, The Joker. We see the latest addition to our ever-growing range of lotteries as another reason why The Lottery Office is a smart option for those looking to partner in a strong affiliate program.
To play the La Primitiva, players must select 6 numbers from a pool of 1 – 49, and 1 ‘Reintegro’ (‘refund’ in Spanish) number from a separate pool of 0 – 9. The Reintegro is one of the unique features that sets La Primitiva apart from other lotteries. It allows players to win a prize simply by matching only one number. Players must also match the Reintegro number to win the jackpot prize (known as the ‘Especial’ in Spain), along with the 6 main numbers. One Reintegro number is selected by the player for every 8 games they buy.
As well as the Reintegro, a traditional supplementary number is also drawn, known as the ‘Complementario’, to determine the third division winners. As with most supplementary numbers, the Complementario isn’t selected by the player, but is drawn randomly as part of the draw process.
The La Primitiva jackpot starts at a minimum of AUD$3 million, and in the past has reached up to a mammoth AUD$160 million. There is no limit on how big the jackpot can grow; it will keep growing for as long as it’s not won. Our players will no doubt be excited to play to win from this well-loved lottery.
In addition to the main draw, players also have the option of playing a separate game called ‘The Joker’. If a player opts to play the Joker, for every 8 games, they’ll be assigned a random 7 digit number. This gives them a chance to win from an additional 7 prize divisions, including a first prize of AUD$1.6 million and a very healthy second division prize of AUD$16,000.
To play the main game costs a very modest $3.70 for a chance to win, and to play the Joker it costs another $3.70 for every 8 games.
There are two draws each week (Fridays & Sundays AEST).
This exciting new lottery is now available to customers via The Lottery Office website, The Lottery Office Android app and The Lottery Office iOS app.
