|SuperLotto Plus is a California-only game played in the style of Mega Millions every Wednesday and Saturday. Five main winning numbers are selected from a set of 47 rubber balls, as is a „Mega number,“ which is chosen from a separate set of 27 rubber balls. California has historically offered a number of jackpot-style games, beginning with the „6-49“ game in 1986, which was changed at various times to a 53-number game (in 1990), which included a seventh, „bonus“ number, then to a 51-number game that lasted until 2000.|
The current 47/27 variant began in 2000 and continues to this day under the name SuperLotto Plus.
On February 16, 2002, the California Lottery’s then-highest payout of $193 million was won by three tickets. SuperLotto Plus offeres a minimum jackpot of US$7,000,000.
How it works:
In order to win the jackpot, customers must correctly select 5 numbers from 1 to 47 and a MEGA number from 1 to 27 for each play.The jackpot prize is paid in 26 annual payments. However, if you win the jackpot, you will have 60 days from the Lottery’s payment approval date to choose the cash value of the prize instead of 26 annual payments.
Jackpots are paid in 26 annual payments, or a player may choose the Cash Value payment in one lump sum. The cash value option is an estimated value between 50% and 60% of the estimated jackpot.
When to play:
Draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday.
