SuperLotto Plus basic rules are very simple to understand. Draws are held in California regularly on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7:57 PM local time. You must be a legal adult to participate. Purchase a ticket and then on the playing fields you mark six numbers: five numbers fr om a pool of 1 to 47 and one MEGA ball number fr om 1 to 27. You can do it personally, following the voice of your intuition, or you can use the “Autofill” function, which randomly selects numbers for you.
On the day of the draw all the balls are put into two lottotrons, where they are taken out one by one through a blind draw. The five standard balls and one MEGA ball make the winning combination. Anyone who was able to mark all six winning numbers gets the grand prize draw — the jackpot!
