EL GORDO     
El Gordo, "the big one", refers to a large lottery jackpot, particularly the one offered in the Spanish Lotería Nacional at Christmas. The Sorteo Extraordinario de Navidad takes place on 22 December and the jackpot is worth several million pounds. Because of the cost of whole tickets people generally form syndicates so the prize is usually shared out between a number of people.
