Azar y fortuna en España: la Lotería Nacional, 1850-2000


Author Info

  • Fernando Ramos Palencia

    (Universidad Pablo de Olavide, Sevilla)


This article examines the determinants of the Spanish National Lottery between 1850 and 2000. The sales data are from Gaceta de Madrid (1850-1920), Cuentas de Tesoreros (Sección de Hacienda) of Administración General Estado Archive (1939-1955) and the Annual Reports from LAE (1985-2000). The results provide a detailed examination of the socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of lottery players –income, educational levels, urbanisation, number of lottery retail outlets in the province, age and religion- that historically determine lottery ticket purchases in Spain. This study uses standard OLS estimation and models that account spatial dependence between a province and its neighbors. KEY Classification-JEL: L83, N34, C23
