THE best part of five million euros may well have been won in Majorca and Ibiza in last week's Christmas El Gordo (The Fat One) lottery draw but it does not look like the Balearics fancy their luck in the El Niño New Year draw.

State lottery sources reported yesterday that here in the Balearics, we have so far spent the least in Spain on El Niño lottery tickets.
On average, we have spent just under 15 euros each on an El Niño ticket - despite the El Gordo millions which were won in the region.
