Spanish Quiniela is a game based on the Spanish Football National League in which Quiniela players predict the outcome of football matches as either a win, lose, or draw. Each ticket shows a series of forecast columns. Along with the columns are 14 rows of football matches along with a final additional row of 1 additional game, called the "Full Fifteen", to give a total of 15 matches, 10 from first the division and 5 from the second division.
There are three different ways of marking your predictions on the tickets: enter 1 to predict a victory for the home team, an X to predict a draw, or 2 to predict a victory for the away team.
You may play Quiniela every time a Spanish football match is played. If no Spanish football matches are played then you can play Quiniela on international matches.
