New York: The country of Spain, which is currently going through a financial crisis, has handed out 3.4 billion dollars in the annual and world’s richest Christmas lottery.
“El Gordo” or the “Fat One”, the lottery’s top prize of 546,200 dollars went to 27-year-old mechanic Raul Clavero and four other members of his family who had also bought tickets with the same winning numbers, the New York Daily News reported.

Unlike other lotteries that offer one large top prize, Spain’s lottery offers thousands of dollars to multiple ticketholders.
