SuperLotto Plus is California’s biggest state lottery game. Players must pick 5 numbers from 1 to 47 as well as a MEGA number from 1 to 27. To win the jackpot, you have to match all 6 winning numbers drawn — a 1 in 42 million chance. Your chances of winning any kind of prize, though, are considerably better at around 1 in 23.

You can also enter non-winning tickets into the weekly SuplerLotto Plus Second Chance draw.
