In California, if you play and win, your name is public record. We’re taking the mystery out of winning because more and more people are willing to tell their stories, and others are still allowing us to take their memorable and eventful photos.

Why is this important? Seeing real Californians holding that oversized check sends a clear signal: people are winning every day! We also like to showcase our winners because it helps illustrate that we maintain the highest level of integrity in our games, thereby insuring public confidence in the Lottery. Regardless of whether it’s $100 or $100,000, winning happens all the time here at the California Lottery. Say hello to some of the “lucky ones” below!
