20 Lucky Vallarta Citizens Share 7 Million Peso Jackpot in Mexico's National Lottery

With an investment of only 30 pesos each, twenty Vallarta citizens split the National Lottery "Gordo" jackpot of 7 million pesos, returning each of these lucky winners 348,500 pesos each.

The concessionaire of the National Lottery which made the sale of the winning ticket is Alejandra McCarthy, who runs the module located at Plaza Caracol, exactly opposite Alvarez Opticals. The employees who conducted the sale are Yesenia Mercado and Gabriela Rocha.

60,000 tickets were issued in two series of this 2380 National Lottery with the 20 lucky winners announced on February 7.

The winning ticket in Puerto Vallarta had a series of the number 17394, which according to sources of the National Lottery was the winner of the big jackpot last Friday evening.

It is not the first time that a "Gordo" lottery prize falls in this city, where there are a high number of customers, and now also of lucky winners.

For security of the individual winners, these types of awards remain anonymous. However, the Public Assistance Agency does report the name of the city. The rest is a confidential process that is performed when the winnings are large sums.

Series of the National Lottery tickets travel randomly to different cities of the country, so that from Tijuana to Cancun you can buy tickets from different series, which ensures that the winnings fall completely and utterly at random anywhere in Mexico.

It is worth mentioning that the National Lottery for Public Assistance (Lotenal) is the institution of the Government of Mexico responsible for making games and legal lotteries in the country. Tickets are sold in Mexico City and others of the different States such as Jalisco, where Puerto Vallarta is located and has a high number of winners.

The Lottery is committed to the acquisition of financial resources through the sale of various sweepstakes lottery tickets and this company works to boost the process of redistribution of a considerable part of the wealth, the creation of jobs, both in proper planning for institutional investment and in the delivery of more and better prizes.
