BonoLoto is a lottery in Spain, regulated by the Sociedad Estatal Loterías y Apuestas del Estado.

The first draw of BonoLoto was held on 28 February 1988. The aim of the game was to provide frequent draws at affordable prices. Reintegro (Reimbursement) was introduced to the game in 1991.

Play[edit]

BonoLoto draws are on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 19:00 GMT in the official lottery draw studios of the Spanish national lottery operator, Loterías y Apuestas del Estado.

Players have to match 6 numbers from 1-49. During the draw, a 7th, additional number is pulled, the so-called Complimentario (Complementary), which is used to create the 5+1 winning category. BonoLoto has a so-called Reintegro feature. Reintegro is randomly assigned to the ticket upon purchase, and if the ticket has zero hits with the main numbers, but the ticket matches the pulled Reintegro, the player is eligible for a refund of the ticket price. A single line of BonoLoto costs €0.50, and the minimum to play is €1.00, which can be achieved by playing 2 lines for the same draw, or by playing a single line for 2 draws.[1]

Winnings[edit]

In BonoLoto 55% of the income is allocated to prizes. Jackpot starts at 400,000 and rolls over each time that the jackpot is not won. Prizes are paid in a single cash payment. The largest BonoLoto jackpot of €7,000,000 was won in 1990 by a single winner. Winnings over €2,500 are subject to a 20% government tax from 1 January 2013.
