The ONCE lottery showered 105,000 euros around Almuñécar thanks to three tickets worth 35,000 each.
Although our accompanying photo is of the special Coupon worth three euros, this week’s winner was the normal, daily one worth 1.50 euros.
As for who sold the tickets, two were sold byJesús María Carrasco who has her booth on Nicolás Sánchez Chaves street, number 2. The third one was sold by José David Gámez Peregrina from his lottery booth on Carrera de la Concepción Street, number 26.
Of course, Almuñécar wasn’t the only municipality where the winning number cropped up as the cities of Málaga, Cádiz, Alicante and Valencia also turned a few ticket holders into jubilant, happy bunnies.
The ELEVEN lottery ticket was originally set up to provide an income for the blind long before the State came up with pensions for such disabilities, back in December, 1938. In fact, ELEVEN stands for National Organization of the Spanish Blind.
The organization has three pillars: the Directorate-General, the Foundation and CEOSA, which is ONCE’s business corporation — employing over 136,000 staff, of whom 88.5% are people with disabilities.
So, there you have it! for only 1.50 euros you can win one of the 55 prizes worth 35,000 euros and at the same time, help those who are visually impaired with your contribution. In fact, for just 50 centimes more, you can also participate in The payment, which gives you 3,000 euros a month during the next 25 years. Not bad, huh?
