One day after the California SuperLotto Plus jackpot rolled to $89 million, California lottery officials raised it by another $1 million.
California lottery jackpots are guaranteed amounts, so the raised amount can only be due to actual sales exceeding expectations.
The new guaranteed California SuperLotto Plus jackpot for the Wednesday, June 28, 2006 drawing is $90 million.
Lottery players throughout California are buying tickets at a rapid pace for the largest SuperLotto Plus jackpot in almost two years. The last time a California lottery jackpot was this big was on August 28, 2004, when three tickets split a $100 million SuperLotto Plus jackpot (see story 1, see story 2).
Drawing results are posted on Lottery Post's California Lottery Results page soon after the drawing, which will take place at 8:00 pm Pacific Time on Wednesday.
