But this was only before 2012 of the year, when the organizers decided to complicate the existing rules. Now each purchased ticket is assigned a number from 1 to 9, which is called Reintegro. After the end of the main part of the circulation, the presenter takes a bonus ball from the lottery drum, whose number stands for Reintegro. It must match that number, which is indicated on the participant's ticket.
These changes make it a little harder to win the jackpot, since now it is not enough to guess the combination of 6 digits. If a the ticket number will not match the number of the dropped Reintegro ball, then you can forget about the main prize of the lottery.

How La Primitiva breeds people
It would be more correct to say, how scammers hide behind the name of the Spanish national lottery and cheat people for money. Divorce scheme, quite commonplace: a potential victim receives a letter in the mail, where it is written about, that she became lucky and won the La Primitiva lottery. And here there are two options for divorce:
- The letter contains a phone number, by calling which you get to the paid premium line. The lottery "agent" will pick up the phone, who will speak english.
- You may be offered to collect your winnings, but on condition, if you pay duty or tax.
Also, scammers can contact you by phone and demand from you your bank card details. Even if you think, that nothing bad will happen if, will you share this information, then you are wrong. Having just a card number, scammers can use this information for their own purposes.
If you received a letter in the mail with instructions to send money to a specific address, do not do that. No one will send you a super prize.
Interesting then, that scammers operate not only in Europe, but also across Asia. Scammers, basically, no matter who to fool and who to defraud. According to experts, the number of victims at the hands of swindlers is growing every year. Asks. why? After all, everyone has long known the schemes of violators. It turns out, that human psychology is arranged like this, that he just needs to see the new text and he again believes in the written. This is used by scammers, just me the contents of the letter, its name and so on.
Talking about telephone "divorces", then scammers are rarely represented by the Spanish national lottery, although a couple of cases were recorded.
How to extort money from players
Apparently the scammers are competing with each other, hiding behind the same lottery. Above we wrote about, how do scammers work under the name of the national lottery, and now let's share that, how intermediary companies offer to buy a ticket, European Lotto, deceiving citizens.
Organizations like TheLotter do an excellent job of this.. They created a bright website for themselves, where they offer to play any lottery in the world. If you choose La Primitiva Lotto, you will need to pay the developer a certain amount for a ticket. Sure, the price of the coupon will be overstated, since you have to pay for the agent's services, who will buy a ticket at an offline point in Spain. At least that's what they write on the site.. Then you will be sent a scanned copy of the ticket. All, then wait for the lottery results.
If you read the reviews, then you will see, that a small amount of money will be paid to you, but if you win a big prize, you can forget about it right away. Though, some are unlucky even for small amounts.
It's hard to trust intermediaries. But for some reason, many people fall for the attractive jackpots of European lotteries and hope to win their prize.
La Primitiva's reaction to scammers
La Primitiva definitely reacted to the fact, that scammers cheat people for money, using lottery name. Scammers move around the world easily. They counterfeit forms, names and signatures of various banking institutions or insurance companies. In general, they are being prepared thoroughly.
The Spanish state lotteries officially announce the following:
to get a win, no matter what denomination, need to, Firstly, buy a ticket for the game. By the way, this applies to any European and American lottery
Many of them do not distribute tickets online. Because of this, gamblers use the services of fraudulent intermediaries;
Like any foreign lottery, Spanish Lotto is tax-free or deposit-free. I.e, the player does not need to pay a commission to collect his prize. However, a certain percentage is deducted from the winnings..
In the case of a "premium" offer, related to the Spanish lottery, don't pay anything. Likely, in this case it is a crime, which should be immediately reported to local authorities. Spanish police have repeatedly detained and brought gang members to court, operating in Spain.
Knowing this, you can immediately see through the scammers, but for some reason people take risks and are led by provocations. Why? It really is a mystery.
La Primitiva Lottery - Spanish national lottery with one of the largest prize pools in Europe. Twice a week, La Primitiva participants claim a super prize. And this is the minimum 3 million euros.
The advantage of the La Primitiva lottery is the high probability of getting a prize. With probability in 10% the ticket price will be refunded: it's enough luck with the Reintegro number. Well, if you can correctly name at least three barrels of six balls, dropped from the lottery drum, then the investment in the ticket will increase in 8 time.
Another plus of La Primitiva - simple rules of the game. In fact, this is a regular lottery "6 out of 49" - guess 6 kegs from 49 in the lottery machine and receive a prize. Moreover, the probability of winning is greater, than in the classic "6 out of 49", because there are numbers Complementario and Reintegro.
This concludes the manual for the Spanish national lottery La Primitiva. Despite, that this lotto is officially held only in Spain, residents of Russia have a chance to participate in it. We think, that lottery lovers should take part in La Primitiva - there are not only simple and clear rules of the game, but also honest organizers, as well as high chances of winning.
Playing foreign lotto is the dream of every gambler. This is due to the fact, what a huge jackpot in foreign currency, you can only find there. Unfortunately, scammers skillfully hide behind the name of well-known companies and lure money out of people, taking advantage of the naivete of the players.
If you study player reviews, then on the sites of wholesalers you will find information not only about the bitter experience of people. Many brag about winning, but usually, such reviews are left by the scammers themselves, advertising your site, where you can buy a ticket for the Spanish National Lottery.
Anyone can buy a ticket on intermediary websites, although it is officially prohibited in Spain to play lotto for minors. Fraudsters always act according to the same scheme:
- write a letter to a potential victim;
- are urged to pay tax;
- lure personal information.
