SuperLotto Plus Prizes and Odds

*Every prize available in SuperLotto Plus is calculated depending on how many tickets were sold and how many winners there are at each level. This means it is not possible to say the exact prize value you would win when playing.

The jackpot starts at $1 million and increases if it is not won. It keeps growing until someone matches all six numbers, so it has been known to climb higher than $30 million. If there are multiple winners of the jackpot, the money is split between them.
The advertized jackpot amount represents the annuity option, if winners choose to accept the prize as a series of annual payouts over 30 years. The alternative is the cash option, which is a lump sum that will be lower than the annuity figure.
If you win, you have 60 days from the date when you claim your prize to request the cash option. All prizes in Michigan must be claimed within one year of the draw taking place. Go to the How to Claim page for more information about what you need to do to collect your payouts.
Most lottery games in America and around the world often have fixed amounts in the prize divisions, however Californian lotteries operate differently. The prizes are decided based on the amount of winners in each division along with the ticket sales. This is known as pari-mutuel.
Due to state law, all California Lottery prizes must be pari-mutuel. This means that the prize amounts are not fixed and are calculated by the tickets sales for that draw and the number of winners there are at each prize level. This means that for multi-jurisdictional games such as Powerball, the prize amounts may differ to those given in other states.
