Normal El Gordo draws occur every Sunday. To play you must choose 5 different numbers from a field of 1-54 and 1 “reintegro” number from a field of 1-9. The draws are held every Sunday at 12:00 GMT (13:00 Spanish local time). When the draw is held 5 numbers are selected at random from a drum of 54 and 1 is selected at random from a drum of 9.
Naturally players must match their chosen numbers with the numbers of the draw to win prizes. There are 9 different prize categories in total depending on how many numbers you match. 5+Reintegro wins you the jackpot, prizes of decreasing value are then given to players who match just 5, 4+Reintegro, 4, 3+Reintegro, 3, 2+Reintegro, 2, and just the Reintegro number on its own.
In any draw where the top prize is not one its value in the prize fund is carried over and added to the value of the next jackpot.
