History of The California Super Lotto

The California State Lottery began with a ballot measure, Proposition 37, that was approved by voters on November 6, 1984. Called the California State Lottery Act of 1984, it allows the Lottery to supplement funding for public education in California through the responsible sale of lottery related products.

Originally, Administrative expenses were capped at 16 percent of sales, with 34 percent going to education but in April 2010, the Legislature passed California’s Assembly Bill 142, changing the funding formula to follow best practices.

Tips for playing The California Super Lotto

Remember – there’s no way to predict the numbers as drawings are completely random, but there are tried and tested ways to increase your chance to win.

Play the Right Games

There is a selection of lottery games—and they each have different odds of winning.

Read the odds to ensure you're maximizing your chances of winning.

Pick up some scratch cards. Yes, they offer smaller prizes but higher chances of winning overall.

Lottery games like Powerball and MegaMillions are national lotteries and have fixed odds of winning, but if many people enter, you could end up splitting a jackpot. That would lower the value of your prize

Don’t Miss a Lottery Win!
One MegaMillions lottery ticket worth nearly $300,000 was never claimed!

Keep your ticket somewhere that is safe and easy to find

Make a note of the drawing date and time in your calendar

Check and Double-check the numbers against your ticket

Use a lottery app to keep track

Play Second-Chance Games (Where Possible)
Many lotteries offer second-chance drawings on non-winning tickets giving players a bonus chance to be a winner.
Take Steps to Secure Winning Lottery Tickets
Sign it! Your signature on the back of a lottery ticket can help you prove that it is indeed yours if it gets lost or stolen.
Choose Rarer Numbers
Picking certain numbers may offer you a slight advantage, not for your chances of winning, but for your payout. If you win a lottery jackpot, there is a chance that you might have to split the payout with players who picked the same numbers, so you might as well try to select rarer numbers to improve your odds of keeping more of the payout for yourself.

Is the California Super Lotto a Scam?
Absolutely not! The California State Lottery began on November 6, 1984 and is still going strong over 35 years later. Unfortunately, fake wins with other institutions have become a regular occurrence – so here are a few tips to keep you and your money safe!

Only buy tickets from authorized lottery retailers.

Offers to sell international lottery tickets by mail or online are usually illegal.

If you didn't buy a lottery ticket or participate in a second-chance lottery game, you didn't win no matter how convincing a text message may sound.

The lottery doesn't notify players when you win; players alone are responsible for checking your winning tickets.

Players are NEVER required to pay money up-front to receive a winning lottery prize.
