Games at Hispaloto.com
There are a variety of games to bet on at Hispaloto including EuroMillions, Bonoloto, La Primitiva, El Gordo, Loteria Nacional, Loteria de Navidad, and sports betting in Quiniela. Players can choose the traditional amount of numbers or play multiple numbers of 10, 15, 22, and 25 (super combos). There is the option to chose from 1 to 40 weeks of play, or automatic renewal. Winning tiers match the official lotteries.
50/50 Fund, Syndicates and Group Play
The 50/50 fund means 50% of any prize goes to the bettor, and 50% is distributed to other players within the group. There are syndicates for each of the lotteries with a fixed number of bets (ticket lines) and shares though they usually have some super combos. Each of the choices in group play has different amounts of bets/tickets, length of times, and shares. Or you can create your group.
This syndicate is played weekly and includes 120 bets on EuroMillions, 240 bets on Bonoloto, 100 on El Gordo and 240 on La Primitiva. But they aren’t your usual straight lottery lines. The bets include a bunch of different combinations. Though it starts with a fixed number of shares, once it reaches that goal, it diversifies to expand with more bets/options to win. Players can play 1 to 40 weeks or use autorenewal weekly.

Hispaloto and the Tax Man
Remember, Spain is one of the countries that does collect tax on lottery wins. Prizes in 2019 above €20,000 incur a tax of 20% that comes off the top of any win. This threshold will increase in 2020 to €40,000. The tax is only on the amount above that threshold.
Who Can Play?
Anyone can play at hispaloto.com if they are 18 years of age or older – and not mentally incapacitated. For non-residents of Spain, you must have a passport (which you will be required to provide a copy of) and a way to make payment.

The Bottom Line at Hispaloto.com
One of the hardest things on this site will be deciding what to play. The different options between 50/50, group play and syndicates plus super combos (because it’s betting) makes it a little mind-boggling. Of course, there is the option to play individual lottery tickets. But the options are very distracting.
