Strong SuperLotto Sales Boost Jackpot To $43 Million


SACRAMENTO -- Lottery officials announced the estimated SuperLotto jackpot for Saturday night's draw at $43 million. "This is the largest jackpot for a single-state lottery in the nation and the largest for the California Lottery in 1999," said Lottery Commissioner, Dave Rosenberg. "This will definitely increase our contribution to California's public schools."

A single jackpot winner of $43 million who chooses the 26 graduated annual payments would receive approximately $1,075,000 the first year and those payments would graduate to $2,193,000 by the 26th year (before taxes). A single jackpot winner who chose the cash option would receive the estimated cash value which is roughly half the announced jackpot or $21.5 million (before taxes).

SuperLotto can be played at more than 18,000 retail business establishments around the state. The SuperLotto draw takes place each Wednesday and Saturday night at 7:58 p.m. Players can purchase tickets until 7:45 p.m. on the night of the draw. Since 1985, the Lottery has raised more than $10.3 billion for public schools.
