The Spanish Christmas draw does not work anything like a "normal" lotto draw.
Ticket play numbers range from 00,000 to 84,999. Their is a winning 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes, as well as for over one thousand smaller prizes. Players also win prizes for partially matching the top three winning numbers.
Here in Spain, they have 2 huge spheres, one holds wooden balls with the 5 digit numbers on them and the other holds balls with the prize amounts.
As the draw happens (takes hours), there are 2 kids, each next to one of the spheres and one tkaes the ball with the prize amt. while the other takes the ball with the play number.
They then take the balls over to a table where the official lotto observers are and the members of the lottery commision take not of the winning number and corresponding prize. then the balls get placed in a type of rack for the records.
This repeats for hours until all prizes are given out and the Spaniards (and foreigners playing as well) watch and await the "Gordo" ( FAT one) to appear out of the prize ball sphere. Saludos, jer...
