Introduction



SuperLotto Plus is a game offered by the official lottery organisation in the state of California. It began its life as “Super Lotto” in 1986 before changing to its current name in 2000.




The California SuperLotto Plus is often described as being similar to Mega Millions, and it is, but it’s worth noting that it was actually created first, so if anything Mega Millions is similar to SuperLotto Plus. The important takeaway here is that if you have played one of these games then you should be able to play the other. See our How to Play section for more information. California SuperLotto Plus



How to Play California SuperLotto Plus



A SuperLotto Plus ticket consists of 5 main numbers from 1 to 46 and 1 bonus number (known as the “Mega Number”) from 1 to 27. There are 9 prize tiers in total and the jackpot is paid to players who get all 5 main numbers and the Mega Ball, with the smallest prize paid to those who match only the Mega Ball.




Jackpots and Records



The SuperLotto Plus jackpot can be paid in cash or as an annuity. If the latter option is chosen then players will receive more money, but they agree to receive it in annual instalments. The first instalment is 1.81% of the advertised jackpot amount, but this percentage gradually increases until it reaches a final payment 5.56% of the advertised jackpot amount.




Although the SuperLotto Plus is a regional lottery, its record jackpots closely reflect those of the Mega Millions and the Powerball. In 2002, when Mega Millions and Powerball were over a decade away from the billion-breaking jackpots of the modern era, the SuperLotto Plus reached over $193 million and was split between three ticket holders. Five years later, in 2007, it paid out $72 million to a single ticket holder.




The California SuperLotto Plus has a minimum jackpot of $7 million and there is no maximum.




Winning Odds of California SuperLotto Plus



The odds of scooping the jackpot on SuperLotto Plus are 1 in 41,416,353 (1 in 41.4 million) while the odds of winning any prize are 1 in 23. The odds of winning the smallest prize by matching only the Mega Ball are 1 in 49.
