The birth of good luck
The Bruixa d’Or was founded in 1986 by its owner Xavier Gabriel in Sort. Before it was baptized by that name, the administration had other names such as “Stop” and it was not until 1992 that it was baptized as the Bruixa d’Or. The origin of this comes from a small statue of a golden witch who acquired Gabriel in a souvenir shop.
Two years after it was renamed, the Bruixa d’Or managed for the first time to distribute the biggest prize in the national lottery of “El Niño”. Luck did not end with this first prize, since their tenths were also awarded in the years 1996, 1998 and 2000 in this same draw. However, it was not until 3 years later (2003) when he managed to become the most famous administration in Spain when he managed to distribute the biggest prize of the Extraordinary Christmas Sweepstakes.
