Spaniards hope ticket number 25609, the day pop star Michael Jackson died, is a winner in their annual Christmas lottery "The Fat One" which is billed as the world's richest, a website said.

The ticket, corresponding to June 25, 2009, "is one of the most requested" this year, according to a statement from Ventura24.es, a website for lottery ticket sales.

The combination 66666 "charged with superstitious and demoniac symbolism", like every year is also a very popular choice, said the statement.

"The Fat One" -- "El Gordo" in Spanish - is a national institution, with millions glued to their television screens on December 22 watching the old-fashioned ritual of schoolchildren chanting in Gregorian-style the numbers and prize amounts.

According to national statistics, 80 percent of Spaniards play "El Gordo", using half their annual lottery spending on the festive draw.

The Spanish lottery gave out over two billion euros (2.9 billion dollars) in prize money last year, nearly twice the amount distributed in 1995.

Although other draws around the world have bigger individual top prizes, lottery experts rank "El Gordo" as the world's richest lottery for the total sum paid out.
