Chispazo is a popular lottery game played in Mexico.
Entry costs MXN 10, with two daily draws being held at 15:15 and 21:15 local time.
To enter Chispazo, choose five numbers from 1 to 28, or play with a Chispático entry where five numbers are generated at random.
System entry is also available, choosing six or seven numbers for entry as multiple combinations, with a seven-number selection creating 21 combinations, for example, and raising the ticket price to MXN 210.
Also, players can make use of Advance Play to enter as many as 10 Chispazo draws in advance, selecting a maximum of five combinations per ticket.
Chispazo does not have any secondary games or additional opportunities to win cash prizes beyond the main draw.
The minimum guaranteed Chispazo jackpot is MXN 10,000.
If the jackpot is not won, the prize rolls down to the second prize tier for additional winning opportunities.
Odds and Prizes
The odds of winning the Chispazo jackpot are 1 in 98,280. Although these are some of the best odds for a lottery game, the jackpot is very low in comparison to elsewhere, and with no possibility of rollovers, this makes Chispazo a fairly unattractive proposition.
Prizes can be won at four different tiers, with odds of 1 in 6 of winning a prize.
|Prize Category||Numbers Matched||Winning Odds||Winning Odds %|
|1||5||1 in 98,280||0.001|
|2||4||1 in 855||0.12|
|3||3||1 in 39||2.56|
|4||2||1 in 6||16.7|
Payout and Taxes
Chispazo winners have only 60 days to claim prizes.
All prizes are paid out as lump sums only, which are subject to 7% tax deducted at source for all players.
Overseas players should check local tax laws to find out if additional tax is payable at home.
