The La Primitiva Lottery is another huge Spanish lottery that attracts lots of ticket sales. The game began hundreds of years ago in 1763. The game was created to raise funds for the Treasury in Spain, and at that time the game was a match 5/90 lottery. In 1985 the game was taken over by the Organismo Nacional Loterias y Apuestas Del Estado, who turned the game into the far more popular 6/49 game that is still enjoyed by millions in 2012. The game has boasted enormous jackpots of €24,920,000 million in 2005 and €26,000,000 in 2007.
