The game has two bolilleros, one for the Gold and Silver Pools, and another for the Revenge.

When the jackpots have no winners, they roll over to the next draw. These wells are called vacant.

## Well of Gold and Silver

The player chooses 5 numbers between 01 and 48. The Gold Pot is won if each of the 5 numbers that came out are correct. However, there is a sixth ball sung, called *Bolilla Extra* . If the player does not match the 5 numbers of the Gold Pool, but does so with 4 of those plus the extra ball, the player is creditor of the Silver Pool. There are other fixed amounts to obtain, in case of hitting 4, 3 or 2 balls, including or not the extra ball.

The Silver Well is more likely to come out, and is usually won by someone each day. For this reason, the Silver Well is always the one that gives the least money.

At the end of 2006, the Well of Gold had a historical pot of 1.5 million dollars, in which more than 1.2 million coupons were at stake. The favored one was only one person, who got the full pot.

The draw on November 10, 2010 set a new record. The Gold Well had the largest number since the game's inception. There were more than 2 million coupons played but it was a single bet, made at the "Casa Alba" kiosk, in Villa Dolores that with the numbers 08 - 21 - 33 - 39 - 40 hit the millionaire prize; the prize was $ 59,716,161, almost $ 3 million.

The mathematical probability of hitting the 5 Gold is 1 in 1,712,304.

## Well Revenge

There is another bolillero for this well. You participate in it with the same numbers with which you participated in the original pot, as long as the person has paid $ U 50 in the total of his bet to be entitled to participate in it. In this pot you only participate for the total, so you have to hit the 5 balls to win the pot.
