Lotto FEVER SETS IN AS SUPERLotto PLUS JACKPOT ROLLS TO $42 MILLION
SACRAMENTO, August 7, 2000 -- Lottery officials announced the estimated SuperLotto Plus jackpot for Wednesday night's draw at $42 million. "Our jackpot is at $42 million right now which makes it a very exciting time in California," said Lottery Director, Joan Wilson. "Even more exciting is that California's public schools will receive $23.5 million from this jackpot and its five rolls."
