    I understand Marazul, however, I did not mean "sorted" (sortead" I meant Sorteo, whihc is the atual event, by means of which the Raffle takes place. The event in which the winner is selected by a random selection of a raffle ticket.

    Hope it helps

    Hi.
    I've heard the word, rifa, used for raffle. Hope that gives you an option.

    The word "draw" also means "empate"... term used when 2 people have all the numbers completed and both win, so both these people will share or get each of them the same prize by separate.

    Hope that helps

    Some Latin American countries use rifa to signify a drawing/raffle as in "estoy vendiendo estos boletos para una rifa en la cual el ganador...",

    and most of the commercials in the US-Spanish television use the word sorteo as in "el sorteo se lllevara a cabo el 11 de noviembre"

    I hope this helps

    Hello:

    I think you can use the word "RIFA" as well.

    Good Luck
