California SuperLotto Plus History
The California state lottery was created in November 1984 with the aim of generating additional funds for the state’s education fund. The first draw under its original name, California SuperLotto, was held in 1986 using a matrix of six from 49. In 1990, the matrix was changed to require players to match six numbers from a pool of 53 to win the jackpot. At the same time, a Bonus Ball was introduced, which was drawn from the same ball pool.
In 2000, the name of the lottery was changed to California SuperLotto Plus and the format changed from a single drum to its current two-drum set-up. This lengthened the odds against winning the top prize but meant that rollovers would generate much bigger jackpots.
The largest jackpot ever won on the California SuperLotto Plus was worth $193 million. This was won in February 2002, shared by three ticket-holders.
Californian law stipulates that all lottery prizes must be pari-mutuel; this means that prize values are calculated on the basis of a percentage of the ticket sales and the number of winners. This law applies to all lotteries played in the state, including Powerball and Mega Millions.
