How to play Loteria Nacional?

The rules of the game are very similar to those in other popular lotteries. First of all, a player must decide what date of the draw he/she is interested in.

There are many such points, thanks to which players can participate in the draw even when leaving the house, for example, on a delegation.

The next step is to choose your favorite five numbers. A player can choose them him/herself. In such a case he/she uses his/her tactics or intuition.
