El Dorado is a popular raffle draw game played across Colombia.
The game is split into three different games, which are drawn at different
times of the day:
A single draw is made at 19:25 local time on public holidays.
Players do not choose their own numbers when playing El Dorado; instead,
they simply purchase a ticket at a lottery outlet.
Each ticket contains a four-digit sequence, with players needing to match
all four numbers in the order drawn to win the jackpot, although other prizes
can be won by matching the first or last three numbers.
Due to the high frequency of El Dorado draws, there are no additional
opportunities to win cash prizes on top of the main game.

determined by the number of tickets sold.
Special festive draws take place once a year to win prizes such as a new car
instead of cash.

excellent odds, albeit with modest prizes; however, with up to three draws
taking place every day, there are still plenty of opportunities to win!
Players can win prizes at three different tiers.
