California - SuperLotto Plus Information

The popular SuperLotto lottery has awarded $27 billion in prizes since it was founded in 1984. The Sunshine State's lottery competes with multi-state lotteries offering jackpots which turn heads nationwide, including a record $193 million win in 2002.

California SuperLotto History

The California SuperLotto was created in November 1984 with the stated aim of contributing to the state’s public education fund. In 2000, the lottery was renamed California SuperLotto Plus. Since its founding, the lottery has been overseen by a governor-appointed lottery commission responsible for ensuring the lottery’s integrity and administering the lottery prize funds.

In April 2010, a bill was passed requiring that 87% of lottery sales go back to the public in the form of prizes and contributions. While the law gives the lottery the flexibility to pay out a higher percentage of its revenues in prizes than it has in the past, this is permitted only if the percentage of proceeds dedicated to public education increases proportionally as well.

California SuperLotto Rules

To play the SuperLotto Plus California, players select 5 numbers from a guess range of 1 to 47 and one additional number (Mega number) from a guess range of 1-27. An additional number enables players to win supplementary prizes and is necessary to complete the jackpot winning number selection.

Winning the California SuperLotto

To claim the SuperLotto jackpot, players must correctly guess 5 regular guesses in addition to the Mega Ball. The SuperLotto jackpot starts at $7 million, and jackpot can be collected in annuity payments or lump sums after state taxes.

California SuperLotto Plus winners have 180 days from the day of the draw in which to claim their prizes. Unclaimed prizes will be added to the public education fund.

Jackpot winners can choose to receive their payment as a lump sum or as a 30 year annuity payment.

Persistence Pays Off - In March 2007, a group of 20 lucky Sacramento-area California SuperLotto winners came forward to claim a win of $72 million. The group of friends had been playing the same numbers for nearly ten years, with one of the group’s members, Gloria Mardriz, purchasing tickets for the group since 1996. The group’s dedicated members elected to continue working even though the group took home a shared lump sum of $40 million.

Players who enjoy California SuperLotto Plus may enjoy other US lotteries with attractive jackpots such as the Powerball and Mega Millions.
