Each month, Loteria Nacional is dedicated to a special theme and funds raised in ticket sales are donated to a different Spanish charitable cause. In addition to the guaranteed prize pool, in some of the Loteria Nacional draws there is an extra jackpot awarded and this is called the premio especial.
Shown below are the three different prize pools available in the monthly Loteria Nacional raffle.
Unlike a lottery, players do not choose their own numbers when they participate in a Loteria Nacional raffle. Instead, they purchase shares, or whole tickets with pre-selected five-digit numbers.
In total, the Loteria Nacional raffle offers 100,000 tickets printed with five-digit codes ranging from 00000-99999. The 100,000 tickets are printed in 10 copies and divided into ten shares to create a total of 10 million shares.
100,000 tickets * 10 copies * 10 shares = 10 million shares.
In the raffle draw, numbers are drawn to determine the winners of the three main prizes as well as winners in the secondary prize divisions. As there are 10 copies of each ticket, there are actually 10 winning tickets of each of the prizes. A player owning a 1/10th share of a winning ticket will receive 1/10th of the prize money won by that ticket.
In certain sorteo extraordinario Loteria Nacional raffle draws there is an extra jackpot called the premio especial (special first prize). This prize is awarded to a specific share in a specific series of the first prize winning ticket.

The selected share will receive an additional €4.9 million in cash prizes for a total win of €5 million.
