The Balearics is feeling lucky and after the El Gordo Christmas draw sprinkled some lottery luck across the region, the majority of people do not want to miss out on becoming one of the first millionaires of 2001 when the El Niño draw takes place on Saturday. Each person in the Balearics will, on average, spend 2'483 pesetas on El Niño lottery tickets - nearly 2'000 million pesetas has already been spent on the 60'000 plus lottery tickets which have been sold across the country. While not as much money is spent on El Niño tickets in comparison to the 7'795 pesetas spent of the Fat One, nobody in the Balearics wants to miss out on picking up some extra cash to help cover the Christmas and New Year expenditures. Saturday is also Three Kings, so a lottery windfall will come as a surprise present to any winners. The Balearics are not the biggest lottery players; Valencia is where the most money is spent on El Niño, followed by the Basque Country and Madrid. Whether Segovia, where the El Gordo top prize was won, is feeling lucky again remains to be seen. Nearly 18'000 lottery tickets have been bought in Segovia with an average of 3'706 pesetas per person being spent on the lottery, so it would appear that the winners of the Fat One are content with their millions and have not gone overboard spending more than usual on El Niño.
