California Super Lotto is a variation of California’s standard Lotto game. It was created in 2000 as an updated “super lottery” game on the scale of multi-state games such as Mega Millions and Power Ball. Like those games, the jackpots are much higher, starting at $7 million and rolling over twice a week if no one wins the big game.

Also like those games, the California Super Lotto has a double dip style game which requires you to pick the right numbers from the base plus an additional “mega number.” Still, California Super Lotto is definitely a popular game and one that millions of Americans and indeed people all over the world seem to love participating in. Here’s what you need to know about it:

Game Type

As previously noted, the California Super Lotto game works in a manner similar to the Mega Millions multi-state lottery game. You first pick out five numbers out of a total of 47 possible choices. Then, you pick a mega number which can be anything from one to 27. In order to hit the jackpot with this game, you must get both the basic numbers and the mega number correct.

However, even though the game is a little harder to win, they also offer lots of extra prizes meaning that your over-all chances of winning are actually very good. You could match 5, 4 or 3 numbers from the basic numbers in order to win.

You could also match four numbers along with the mega number, 3 numbers with the mega number, two with the mega number or even just one main number along with the mega number.

In essence this means that while the jackpot may be harder to win, you can still walk away with plenty of cash courtesy of the California state lottery commission when you play California Super Lotto.


The rules for buying into the California Super Lottery have changed several times since it was first introduced in 2000. The initial rules said that only California residents were allowed to participate in the game. Then, it was opened up to anyone who cared to buy a ticket as long as they were American citizens.
