Spanish term or phrase:poner el pleno al 15
En lo que haces La Quiniela de 4,3 millones de Bote con tus compañeros de trabajo durante una reunión de resultados que está siendo un tostón, da tiempo a que Clara, que hoy está guapísima, te dé un papelito por debajo de la mesa. Y que al mirarlo veas que es La Quiniela y que sólo falta poner el pleno al 15.
Justin, here is another link by way of explanation http://digibuo.uniovi.es/dspace/bitstream/10651/13036/6/IJSF...
Although La Quiniela shares some characteristics with lotto games in that both are pari-mutuel games, it is not a lottery in the sense that the winning combination is not the outcome of a draw but is instead related to the final results of several football matches. To win the maximum prize players must correctly guess the results of all 14 matches included in the coupon. It has been this way since the beginning of La Quiniela with exception of the period between the beginning of the 1988-89 season and the end of the 2002-03 season when 15 instead of 14 matches were included in the coupons. This **extra match (El pleno al 15)** to win the maximum prize was introduced again in the 2005-06 season.
Another link provided (see references) refers to the 15h game on the ticket as “full”. I know nothing about “La Quiniela”, but perhaps a “full ticket” or “extra match” may be options to consider, but perhaps someone versed with the Spanish football pools can lend a helping hand.

What is Football Quiniela?
It is a lottery game based on the football matches that plays Spanish teams, usually weekends with the Spanish Football League, but also when possible with European Champions, or Spanish King Cup, or even national country teams.
How is played?
It is based in getting the 15 results of mathces that are in the ticket.
In the first 14 matches there are 3 options, 1-X-2
1 - Wins the home team (first name in ticket)
X - Draw
2 - Wins the visitor team (second name in ticket)
In the match 15, you must predict the score of the match.
0 - Zero goals
1 - One goal
2 - Two goals
M - Three or more goals
For example, if we think that result will be 5-2, we must select M-2
Jackpot is won by getting the 15 results of the ticket.
In case of more than one winner, prize is divided between them in equal parts.
How and when is the draw?
There is no draw, as it is based on football results.
If for any exceptional issue, some match does not take place, this result is replaced for a small draw with 3 balls in Madrid after all games are done.
Game 15 in the ticket is named Full (to 15). This results is only valid for those that already got the 14 previous results.
Winners of Special category (14+P, named Full 15) also get the prize of first category (14).
If in a draw there are no winners of first category, the money goes to the reserve fund, that is managed by LAE (Loteries and Bets of the Spanish Government).
