About the BonoLoto Lottery
The Bonoloto Lottery is regulated by the Sociedad Estatal Loterías y Apuestas del Estado, in Spain. It aims to be accessible for anyone to enjoy by offering frequent and affordable draws since 1988.
The Bonoloto lottery numbers draw six nights a week, and there are five prize divisions. The game’s aim is to match your chosen numbers to those drawn. A seventh number is also in play. The other number is the Complementario (Complementary), which creates a 5+1 win in the 2nd prize category.
In 1991 Reimbursement or Reintegro was introduced. Tickets are randomly given this privilege upon purchase. If your selection has no matching numbers other than the pulled Reintegro number (0-9), you'll be able to claim a refund of your ticket.
To join the fun, the cost for a single line is €0.50. However, the minimum you can play for is €1.00. Therefore you'll need to purchase at least two lines from a single draw or place a single line on two draws.
Playing this lottery can be very lucrative. Although it's drawn frequently and is cheap to enter, over 55% of the income goes to prize money. The lottery jackpot starts at €400,000, and every time it's not won, it’ll rollover.

If you believe you've won, you'll then return to a lottery retailer with your voucher. They'll then use a Bonoloto lottery ticket scanner to check if and what you've won.
Cashing your winnings is just as easy as playing the game. How you go about this will depend on how you bought your ticket. For instance, if you play online, the money will automatically be sent to the payment method you link to the account. It's then up to you to withdraw the amount or keep it in your account to fund future participation. The same process is correct for mobile app users.
If you purchase your ticket at a brick-and-mortar retailer, then you'll need to revisit one. It doesn't have to be in the same shop. Check out the list at the top of the page for further information on locations.

Winners of large sums will also have the option to receive their prize either as lump sum or annuity. If you choose the latter, you opt to receive the sum in installments over a fixed period. A lump sum allows you to take the money entirely. However, in most lottery policies, the lump sum value is less than if you agree to receive it over time.
