California SuperLotto Plus Jackpot Reaches $59 Million

Saturday’s California SuperLotto Plus jackpot will be worth $59 million, the highest it has reached since Saturday May 24 2014, when Eurico Chin of San Francisco won $70 million. The current total is the result of 47 rollovers since a single ticket holder snapped up $14 million on Saturday February 7.

Lottery fans across the state will be flocking to get hold of entries for the drawing, hoping to follow in the footsteps of Chin, who happened to be walking past the Safeway store on Noriega Street in the city and, on a whim, bought five Quick Picks. It proved a moment of inspiration for the 41-year-old, who took a month to decide what to do with his windfall before coming forward to claim the prize.

Chin announced that he would retire thanks to his newfound fortune and, with a $59 million ($36.7 million estimated cash value) California SuperLotto Plus win this weekend, you could do the same. You could buy yourself an idyllic four-bedroom oceanfront villa in Malibu, with access straight onto the beach, for $11.5 million and still have plenty left to fill the three-car garage with a fleet of luxury vehicles.

For your chance to live the VIP life for the rest of your days, you will need to buy California SuperLotto Plus tickets from authorised retailers within the state. Make sure you check the California Lottery results on Lottery.net soon after the draw is made to see if you are the next big winner in the Golden State

California Lottery Asks Players to “Believe in Something Bigger”

The California Lottery has launched an ad campaign with a difference, ignoring the usual messages about huge cash wins and lives of luxury and instead concentrating on individuals who have made an impact on communities across the state. The online videos, created by LA agency David and Goliath, take the strapline “believe in something bigger” and focus in on stories of people who make a difference in others’ lives, despite some of the stars having had to battle adversity themselves.

Those featured include Bruno, a restaurateur from Orange County, who grew up in a poor immigrant family and reminisces that, although they had very little, his mother ensured that there was always pasta to eat. Bruno is seen donating Italian food to local disadvantaged children and explains that he distributes 1,000 meals every day.

Susan Cervantes helps organize local people in San Francisco to paint murals, an experience which is enriching for those involved while also brightening up the neighborhoods for the residents. Another film shows Mayisha Akbar, founder of the Equestrian Club for Kids, encouraging inner-city children from Compton to take up horse riding.

David and Goliath chairman, David Angelo said, “It’s hard to believe in winning the lotto. We think we’ve found a very human way to link to the idea that anything is possible.”

California Lottery players are encouraged to utilize the hashtag #CAdream to share the fantasies that they would like to make reality should they win one of the top prizes on Powerball, Mega Millions or SuperLotto Plus.
