The lucky ones obtain for each one of them 20,000 euros free of taxes (200,000 in the series), since they do not exceed the minimum amount of 40,000 that requires taxation.
54,289 was called at 11:08 a.m. on the tenth wire of the fourth table and has fallen entirely in Calatayud (Saragossa).

In 2021, the fourth prizes were 42,833 and 91,179. Luck came to the island of La Palma, which had been in the news in the last months of the year due to the volcano that kept the palm trees in suspense for 85 days. The 42,833 were widely distributed throughout the country, with lucky people in El Espinar (Segovia), Comillas (Cantabria), Seville, Elche (Alicante), Benidorm (Alicante), Llanes (Asturias), Santander or Bilbao.
How and where to collect the prize
The Christmas Lottery Draw prizes can be collected from December 22 at 6:00 p.m. Something important to keep in mind is that you should not delay the collection or think that it does not expire, because it does and it is for three months: a prize cannot be collected after March 22, 2023.

Where to collect the prize? It depends on the amount. If the prize is less than 2,000 euros, it is possible to do so at any State Lottery and Gambling administration. If the prize is higher, you must go to a branch of Banco Santander, CaixaBank, BBVA, Abanca, Banco Sabadell, Bankia, Cajamar, Caja Sur BBK, Ibercaja, Kutxabank and Unicaja.
How much does the Treasury take
As previously mentioned, in the case of the fourth prizes, the amount that the winner takes is complete, clean of taxes. Yes, you have to pay, specifically 20%, in the case of prizes that exceed 40,000 euros and it is applied in the form of withholding, that is, that Selae itself (State Lottery and State Betting Society) will deduct the tax from the prize applicable at the time of payment. Thus, the winners do not have to carry out any additional procedures.

And if the prize is shared? It is the question that many ask themselves when the tenth or the series are shared with family, colleagues or friends. When this is the case, the 40,000 euros exempt from taxation must be distributed proportionally to the participation of each one and whoever is in charge of the task will appear as the sole beneficiary or collection manager and must be able to prove to the Tax Agency that has made the distribution and to identify all the winners.
