Sacramento -- The California Lottery officials announced that XTRA REWARD, a special featured promotion for the SuperLotto Plus® game, will be held from March 31 - May 11, 2002. An eight-digit number will be drawn every Wednesday and Saturday giving players a chance to win $75,000. (Please add this eight-digit number to your draw results section in your Lotto Box.) The eight-digit number for last Wednesday's draw was 10220113.

Each time a player buys 5 to 10 SuperLotto Plus plays, for one draw on a single ticket, they automatically receive one to three free Xtra Reward numbers. The Xtra Reward number is a unique eight-digit number, which will appear on the bottom of each ticket. These numbers are sequential and unique to each ticket. Players match the Xtra Reward number to the Lottery-selected eight-digit number and win $75,000.

Players can find out if they are winners by visiting a retailer, visiting the Lottery website or checking the local newspaper.

The California Lottery sells its games through a network of more than 18,000 outlets statewide. The Lottery provides 52.5 percent of its sales to players as prizes, 34 percent to public schools, and 13.5 percent for administrative expenses, which includes 6.9 percent for retailer compensation. Since 1985, the Lottery has provided approximately $12 billion to public schools. The California Lottery's contribution equals approximately 2 percent of the state's total education budget.
