California Super Lotto jackpot soars to $61 million for next drawing

Beth Torres

Imagine winning $61 million! That’s the exciting tag line you’ll see on the California Super Lotto Plus results page. But it’s more than a slogan because the jackpot prize up for grabs for the next drawing really is an estimated $61 million.

Because nobody won the $60 million jackpot for the drawing on Saturday, May 20, 2023, the jackpot will roll over to the next drawing scheduled for Wednesday, May 24.

Second-place cash prize is still a nice windfall

Just because nobody won the jackpot doesn’t mean somebody didn’t end up a happy winner. One ticket for the May 20 drawing matched 5 out of 5 white ball numbers but not the Mega number. The California Lottery reports that ticket was worth $47,747.

While not a millionaire-making amount of money, the second-place prize would probably be a welcome chunk of cash in just about any household in California where the high cost of living is driving many folks out of the state.

The winning numbers for the Saturday, May 20, 2023 California Super Lotto Plus drawing #3770 were:

2, 3, 31, 42, 45 and 19 (Mega number)

You can also check your numbers to see if you won this or another prize directly on the past winning numbers page for the California Super Lotto Plus.

The winning ticket was sold by a California convenience store and lottery retailer, Express Mart. You can see the exact location on the below map.

Nobody has won the Super Lotto Jackpot in a very long time

The last time a lottery player won the California Super Lotto jackpot prize was on November 12, 2022. According to a lottery press release, the jackpot had reached $41 million on that date and one winning ticket won the entire prize.

The winning lottery player, Jimmie Coleman, purchased his jackpot ticket at a Chevron gas station. The gas station received a $205,000 bonus for selling the ticket.

The length of time between jackpot lottery wins only shows how difficult it can be to snag the top prize. Lottery officials say the odds of winning a jackpot are one in 41,416,353.
