He was made to wait because he was one of the last to leave, at the edge of 1:30 p.m., but the owners of some of the 270 tickets distributed by the Paseo de la Constitución lottery administration flooded with joy.
In Crevillent there were 80 tenths (10 million euros), in Elda another 50 (6.25 million), and another ten tenths in the administration of Calle Nuestra Señora de los Desamparados de Callosa de Segura or, what is the same, 1,250,000 euros.

The administration of lottery number 4 is owned by some residents of Rafal, so a good part also came to the town of Vega Baja.
The head of the “Jubama” administration of Xàbia, who sold the only number (72,897), graced with the Big Christmas Lottery in the province, Víctor Benlloch, was “excited.” And it is that this young establishment, opened three years ago, has already distributed in its short history, in addition to the Gordo, another of the EuroMillion valued at one million euros on February 14, 2019, and 100,000 euros from an extraordinary Lottery draw in 2018.

The fact is that there was also some confusion around the number of tenths awarded with El Gordo in Xábia. Madrid contacted the administration officially communicating that the system awarded it the sale of a tenth of the Gordo in the machine where the rest of the draws are sealed. However, the winner with the winning number came to go through the administration assuring that she had four tenths of the so-called “blue receipt”. All in all, the office is in luck after the transfer taken by Victor. “We took over after an uncle of my wife gave it to us, who ran it for 52 years without giving a major award.”
