  1. California “2nd Chance Lottery.”
    We are 100% convinced that the “2nd Chance Lottery” is a SCAM. My family and I have scanned the codes for non-winning Scratcher Cards, $5 Fantasy 5 tickets, and Superlotto tickets religiously FOR YEARS.
    If you look at the winners who are posted every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, you find that MOST of the time the winners are the same people or people who are located in certain parts of the state.
    The California Lottery claims the 2nd Chance Winners are “randomly selected by a stand-alone draw machine/computer.” If the same people are winning over and over again, the selection process is NOT “random.” The selection process…in my opinion is most likely biased, preferential, and selective; Therefore NOT random. If I had to guess, I would bet that the people who are winning these particular games are either family and/or friends of people who work for the California State Lottery. PEOPLE ARE PISSED. How many times does one have to scan these codes before even winning a little bit of money?

  7. 83- 100,000 tickets still available on THE BIG MONEY Scratcher, this is an old scratcher. How does CA Lottery explain this? They’re not putting the tickets out. Not fair for the people

  8. They are scammers bought 4 tickets in a row $10 scratchers didn’t win on any of them and this isn’t the first time CA Lottery is so sketchy and scammers..

    00
    • Crazy – a group of five people bought whole roll of $30.. some free tickets and one $50 win. There is no money in pool. It is fake. Lottery claims one or two big winners in the game if true winner then it could be any where in California so they is zero change to win big and rest are free tickets.. so don’t waste your money

  9. Amazing supposedly the lottery has raised 1 .7 billion for schools, what schools? And what exactly have they done for the schools? They have way too many scratchers and all are over priced. With mega and power ball all revenues are shared yet the tax structure is not the same not shared. The fact that they changed the payment methods has know completely sucked up any future, and the lottery commission doesn’t know anything about gaming at all, there more like a city council and we all know how that works! I would suggest major changes with this lottery system we have because it isn’t working for the commonwealth, it’s only working for those who are running it? The worst is if you ask a question they just give a bunch of smoke and mirrors exactly like the senators and congressmen. They have sold out every American that is an American. It is completely a illusion. My advice is to boycott the lottery until they can be accountable for their actions. It is supposed to be a two street not a one way street? But it’s ok if we die for our country though right. Just save your money so you can buy the things you want and need because there aren’t really any winners of the lottery once they fixed it to there advantage. How much of our money do they need to take away from us will be enough? Thought we fought the British for freedom, but know we are doing worse to our selves than they did to us.
    God bless America right or is that even true?

  10. California lottery SUCKS! We hit the power ball on Nov 2….here it is Jan 6th and still have yet to collect our winnings. Sooo sketchy…I’m about ready to hire a lawyer to sue the state of California for breach of contract. This is complete BULLSHIT. We won it, fair and square and the state of California continues to find bullshit excuses to not pay us. Typical California Crap.

  11. The new website is ugly and a navigational mess. It was designed for mobile users and totally ignored the millions of lottery players that do not rely on mobile for web access.

    When you first open the site, you get a screen that’s filled with a clutter of images and the results for 3 games (MegaMillions, SuperLotto, PowerBall). To find the other draw games you have to click on a small blue box at the right edge of the screen. The lucky retailers feature is also gone.

    The random images of people are meant to advertise how fun and “inclusive” the lottery is, but it’s annoying to see them plastered on every game page. The old website design may have been plain, but it was functional and quick to use — the new one is not.

  12. Daily Derby jackpot is rolling over 1M for one week straight without no winner. is this a good example of rigging of lottery draw? Jackpot is worth near 500,000. I have zero faith and trust in CA lottery.

  13. Review for the new website is that it is bad, confusing. Someone thought they were making it better. could you not leave it simple. Maybe your trying to get people to buy more tickets, I myself dislike the changes. A test, three hundred 5 dollar tickets at one time, yielded about 250.00 back. no hundred dollar winners just ticket exchange and 5 winner 20 winners. Have played the lotto for years one or two numbers, obviously there are winners. Maybe spreading the winnings a bit more could be encouraging on the tickets. Dee

  14. If your paying 20.00 or 30.00 for a ticket then the min prize should be no less than 100.00..I mean it should be against the law too give u a break even ticket if your spending that much…getting a break even ticket especially if its a 30.00 ticket defeats the purpose…I’m sick of all the small prizes…its no fun getting a break even ticket..Please loosen tickets and print more hundred dollar winners…the poor are getting poorer and the rich are getting richer…the scratch tickets need to be loosened up big time…people are gonna stop buying them altogether if they don’t. Please bring back max a millions..that was my all time favorite ticket…

  15. The lotto has been played by friends n family for years noones won check utube where r the large winners supposedly all going to school not back to public at all we are all broke they never let us win anything they have provided nothin but false hope anger depression and broken homes to me stay away from the lotto trash!

  16. One two and three dollar scratchers a total rip-off. Save your money and go to a casino period at one time you could win a lot the one two and three dollar scratchers. Once they started to raise the price to five ten and 20 dollars. People started to lose continually on scratchers. They want you to spend more money, once they got you hooked. No thanks the average household doesn’t have the kind of money two-way spy Cannon play on a scratcher 510 + $20 on a scratcher. Give it up and buy yourself something you really want you save a lot of money by not buying them

    • Yes, I believe that the whole thing is a scam, I feel sorry for those stupid people who play the same numbers for years because those numbers are already set aside by these thieves.

      00
  17. Rip off… Played. 25 games and no winners, only got 2 numbers and one time 3 numbers for $3. Changed to different numbers and 1st game all 5 of previous numbers came up.. Isn’t the first time this has happened. This game is rigged, their computers know what numbers you pick and make sure they don’t have to pay out too much.. This site won’t accept a bad rating.. Am I supprised?

  18. Love all the different lotteries and even better the fact anyone can play. Quite a selection including some daily lotteries and the usual big ones. I’m trying out the California SuperLotto Plus. One thing – I think California has changed the rules now and there is only federal withholding tax, not state.

California Lottery Exposed — Spice Up Your Life!

California Lottery Review

Wouldn’t it be nice to get CA lottery tickets online? After all, so many states have finally decided to launch their official websites and apps dedicated to that very “innovative” feature.

Is California one of these pioneers?

We will find the answer by reviewing the state’s official lottery website – CALottery.com.

While the site’s design is a little bit dusty, it could still have a lot to offer. This review will check out the functionalities, the opportunities, and how lottery enthusiasts can benefit from CALottery.com.

Games at California Lottery Online

Let’s start by answering the most important question first. Does California State Lottery offer an online ticket buying option? Unfortunately, the answer is no.

The only thing you can do right now through the website and the app is to check your numbers to see if your paper ticket slip has won you anything.

As far as games go, California has so much to offer that the lack of an online ticket buying option is a major pity.

CA Lottery Powerball and CA Lottery Mega Millions are the two contenders for the state’s most prominent game. Cal Super Lotto is also there, reaching the top for the most popular Californian lottery games.

In California, you can choose among a couple of other smaller draw-style lotteries like Fantasy 5, Daily 3, Daily 4, Daily Derby, and Hot Spot. It’s such a pity that you can access these games only if you are in the state. Let’s hope that laws will change soon, but the situation isn’t that very optimistic. The US has some pretty rigid rules about how lottery games can be played. Unfortunately, online ticket purchases are still not that widely accepted on a regional level.

CA Lottery and Claiming Your Prizes

Since you cannot buy lottery tickets online or through California Lottery apps, you will also have to claim prizes in person. It doesn’t matter if you’ve won one of the regular draw-style games or additional opportunities like California Lottery Second Chance. The procedure is always going to be the same.

For most CA Lottery draw games and scratch off lotteries, smaller sums can be claimed immediately at any retail location of preference. This rule applies to prizes of up to 600 dollars.

If you win larger prizes, you will need to visit a Lottery District Office in California.

The only difference is that a claim form will have to be filled out, and the claim form differs for regular games and Second Chance.

Keep in mind that if you win anything in California, you’ll have to agree to a public disclosure clause. That means your identity will not be protected, and you’ll lack the opportunity to remain anonymous.

Who Can Play at Cali Lottery?

You probably already have an idea about this one, don’t you? It doesn’t matter if you want to play draw-style games or CA scratchers. You have to be on the state’s territory, and you also have to visit one of the numerous retail venues to get your tickets.

There is absolutely no way to participate if you’re out of state or out of the country. Some lotteries like Powerball and Mega Millions are being offered by international online lottery agencies. For the strictly California-based games, however, you will have no chance to partake from a distance.

If you are in California and want to play the lottery, you have to be aged 18 or older to buy tickets.

Who’s Behind California Lottery Online?

The California Lottery website and the mobile app are created by the actual company behind organizing lottery games and distributing prizes.

The California State Lottery was set up in 1984 after the passing of the California State Lottery Act. Since 2005, the California State Lottery has been offering national games like Mega Millions (it became the 12th jurisdiction to start offering the game). Initially, California did not want to offer Powerball to locals but eventually, it was launched in 2013.

As you can see, it takes some time for certain new things to get adopted in California (which makes us hopeful for the future introduction of online playing).

Right now, you can buy tickets the old-fashioned way without worrying about being scammed.

Other Bits and Pieces

We don’t have too much to talk about since California Lottery offers virtually no digital services to its clients.

Even now, when social distancing is being recommended, there seem to be no plans for the quick change of the way lottery tickets are sold.

We haven’t talked too much about the California Lottery app, so let’s briefly pinpoint some of its key characteristics.

The app is only good for scanning tickets to find if you’ve won anything, entering Second Chance draws (after you have bought an actual ticket elsewhere), checking winning numbers, finding a nearby lottery retailer, and seeing the latest Second Chance promotions.

This may seem like a good start (and it would have been back in 2000). Still, there’s quite a lot missing in terms of convenience and digital service provision. Given that it is going digital’s become so simple in this day and age, there really is no excuse.

Would you mind rating CaLottery.com?

The Bottom Line at California Lottery

The final verdict is this – if you live in California, you will be missing out on opportunities that are already available in other states. You cannot purchase lottery tickets online, and we don’t know how long it would take for the situation to change.

Let’s end this review by summarizing the key advantages and disadvantages of the California Lottery.

Pros:

An official state lottery operator that is working under California laws

There are both a website and an app dedicated to the lottery

You can enter Second Chance draws through the mobile app

Lots of additional information is available

Cons:

California does not allow the online selling of lottery tickets

You have to physically be in California to buy tickets and participate in games

You have to claim prizes in person

So there you have it. We will update you as soon as the situation changes, but currently, the California Lottery website is way behinds what other state digital portals have to offer.
