The Christmas Lottery awakens the illusion of the whole country every year. Last year, the number awarded with the first prize was 72,897 and, although we cannot anticipate the number that will be awarded this 2021, we want to collect, at least, some of the administrations of lottery in Tenerife that have distributed the most prizes.
San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Puerto de La Cruz and Telde are the most fortunate municipalities of the Canary Islands with the ‘Gordo’ of the Extraordinary Christmas Lottery Draw, with the first prize falling up to three times in these locations. Meanwhile, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Arrecife, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Granadilla de Abona and Los Realejos have received the ‘Gordo’ on two occasions.
Here are the lottery administrations in Tenerife in which the most awards have fallen in recent years:
La Chasnera (Granadilla de Abona)
Tenerife gas station, La Chasnera, located in Granadilla de Abona, has been known since 2013 as ‘El Surtidor de la Suerte’, even on occasion it has been compared to Doña Manolita, the most famous Lottery Administration in Spain, located in Madrid.
In 2013 they sold a complete series of 200 million euros, 79,712 and since then, each year, they have returned to spread joy in the form of award-winning tickets.
The queues in front of the receiving machine that has been giving the first prizes for seven years, in what is already one of the best-known lottery administrations in Tenerife, were endless in 2020, although it was estimated that sales were 30% lower than the previous year, which followed the general trend of the country.
According to the compilations made from DIARIO DE AVISOS, based on the information collected in the last 4 years, in La Chasnera the third prize has fallen in 2018 and 2019; the fourth prize in 2019; fifth prizes in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 and the Gordo in 2018 and 2020.
Pcan gas station (Arico)
In the store of the Pcan de Abades began selling tickets in June 2018, when it distributed a third and a fifth prize.
The following year, in 2019, he again distributed luck, by awarding tenths corresponding to the third prize, for 1,406,000 euros, of a fourth and three-fifth prizes.
The owner of this service station is Juan Antonio González, who opened the gas station in 2000, when he still did not know that it would become one of the lottery administrations in Tenerife that generates the most joy among its customers at this time.
El Bohío (The Slaughter)
Another of the lottery administrations in Tenerife that stands out the most for the sale of tickets that are awarded is at the service station The Bohío, in La Matanza de Acentejo.
For example, on December 22, 2018, one of the fifth prizes went to this gas station.
The Black Cat (Los Realejos)
In 2018, The black cat, one of the most popular lottery administrations in Tenerife celebrated having sold Fat. “We gave the Fat, we gave the Fat, in the Black Cat”, sang Pili, Varinia, Eli and Katia, the four employees of the premises.
It was not the first time that a large award was awarded in this administration, but the workers’ celebration exuded the same joy.
In addition, if we look back, we find that, in 2011, the Black Cat sold 15 tickets of the third prize of the Christmas Lottery to a bar in the town of La Victoria or that, in 2007, it sold tickets awarded with the Gordo.
Estanco Goya (Granadilla de Abona)
At Goya de San Isidro tobacconist Christmas Lottery is sold, but it is also awarded.
In 2018, for the fifth consecutive year, this tobacconist gave a prize in the Extraordinary Christmas Draw, this time being a fourth. For this reason, we place it on the list of lottery administrations in Tenerife that have distributed the most prizes.
