About the California Lottery

California Scenery

58% of state voters approved the California Lottery, which was introduced in November 1984. Tickets went on sale in October the following year, while Lotto game draws started in 1986.

According to the state's Lottery Act, at least 50% of California Lottery revenue must be paid to the public in the form of prizes, while 34% should be put into public education in the state.

The California Lottery Act was amended in 2010, with the allocation to prizes and state education raising to 87%. Since its inception in 1984, the lottery has paid over $32.2 billion in funding to California public schools.

The lottery added Mega Millions to its portfolio in 2005. The very first draw was held in Hollywood and the minimum jackpot was set at $15 million. Californians queued up well in advance to purchase their tickets and Mega Millions remains one of the state's most popular lotteries.

In 2013, the state joined Powerball, with the first draw taking place on April 10. Currently, California has five exciting state-only lottery games, including the horse racing-themed Daily Derby.

FAQS

Are California Lottery prizes taxable?

Lottery winnings in California are generally not subject to state taxes, but they are subject to federal taxes. Based on your overall annual income and tax liability, however, you may still be liable for any California state and local personal income taxes.

The California Lottery is also required to withhold a percentage of certain lottery winnings for tax purposes. Please check the Tax Information section for more details.


How long do I have to collect my winnings?

Where and how can I claim my California Lottery winnings?

Any ticket over the amount of $599 can't be redeemed at a licensed lottery retailer. You must mail your ticket to the California Lottery with a claim form. It's a good idea to use certified mail for guaranteed delivery, or you can also visit the claim center to claim your prize.

Before claiming any big lottery prize, however, we recommend that you consult with a lawyer or financial advisor as they can help you during the claim process.


What happens if my ticket is stolen or lost?

The first step is to contact the Security & Law Enforcement number at 1-800-568-8379. The sooner you report your ticket stolen or lost, the sooner the staff will be able to help you. You'll need to provide as much detail about your ticket as you can, including where you bought it, when you bought it, when it was lost or stolen, and how much the ticket cost.

Can I remain anonymous if I win a lottery prize?

No. Your name, the area where you live, the game, and your winning amount are public record in California.

We suggest that you consult with a lawyer before claiming any big prizes however, as it may be possible to claim your prize through a trust in order to retain your anonymity.
