8:09 am
jackpot with thousands of winners. mark phillips has the latest from london. good morning. in spain where recession and government austerity lingers like a winter cold that won't go away there's a unique christmas ritual that offers a little relief for a while. the spanish santa doesn't care if you're naughty or nice, only if you ear lucky. they call it el gordo, the fat one. and the main prize in spain's christmas lottery at over half a million dollars is a good lump of money. the fervor over ticket buying has become a national institution. but for 200 years the spanish christmas lottery has had a special tradition. in addition to offering big prizes, it offers a lot of smaller ones with more than $3 billion in total up for grabs. people form syndicates to buy tickets in the hope of spreading the windfall even further and escaping the destitution that with an unemployment rate stuck
8:10 am
above 25% so many in spain endure. so no simple machine spitting out balls reveals the winning numbers here. instead, it's a choir of child angels. and as luck would have it -- many of this year's winners came from some of the hardest hit areas of the country, a town where the main appliance plant has gone bankrupt and laid off 2 million people. and a working class suffer in madrid, where there's no work. 53-year-old alfonso martinez was one of the big winners. he said the travel agents where he used to work closed up and the bosses disappeared. no severance pay. this woman, another winner says her family has been living on welfare. and this woman sald she'd buy a house and help out her children all of whom are unemployed. as economic fixes go winning the lottery only works for the lucky. most people in spain are still
