Biggest CA SuperLotto Jackpot

Jackpot iconJackpot: $193 Million

Calendar iconDate: February 16, 2022

Winner iconLocation: California

The biggest California Super Lotto jackpot was won by three people in Februaury 2006. The three players each took home over $32 million each after tax after the SuperLotto draw rolled over a record number of times and is still yet to be beaten nearly 20 years later.

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.

How to Claim a Prize

California Lottery winners have multiple options to claim, depending on the prize amount. The quickest way to redeem wins of $600 and above is at a Lottery District Office.

Lottery District Offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM PT for walk-in claims. No appointment is needed. Claims are no longer being accepted via dropbox.

$599 and Below

There are three ways you can claim your prize - choose the most convenient one for you.

  • Cash your ticket at a CA Lottery retailer and get paid your winnings right there and then.
  • Claim at a CA Lottery District Office. Complete a claim form and also bring your signed winning ticket plus current ID such as a State ID, driver license, or passport.
  • Claim by mail. Fill out a claim form and send it with your signed winning ticket to:

California Lottery
730 North 10th Street,
Sacramento, CA 95811

The Lottery recommends saving a copy of your claim form and ticket, and sending the originals by certified mail.

Note that San Diego, Fresno and Sacramento winners can claim most prizes of $1,000 or below at their local Lottery District Offices and receive their checks immediately. The rest of the claim process is the same as below.

Individual winners should complete Claim Form CSL1242. A single player claiming on behalf of a group for wins of $600 to $999,999 should also complete this form, plus IRS Form 5754.
