The California Lottery offers more than 70 scratch-off games that can deliver instant wins, so you don't have to wait for a draw to put some cash in your pocket - Golden State players can score prizes of up to $20,000,000! There are a variety of scratch card ticket prices - $1, $2, $3, $5, $10, $20 and $30 - with a range of top prize values.

The Lottery introduces brand-new games every month, so there's always something different to try, with a range of fun themes and great payouts to be won.

Scratchers prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the game's announced end date.

Each game has different prizes and odds of winning. To find the odds, simply check the back of your scratch-off ticket, or view every game's payouts and chances of winning via the Updates link below.

Do games stop being sold? Yes - the Lottery regularly launches new games and retires old ones. Games that have ended no longer have tickets available to buy. However, your non-winning tickets still have another shot at taking home a prize with 2nd Chance draws.

2nd Chance

Haven't won a prize? Don't toss your ticket, because there's still another chance to take home a payout! Turn that frown upside down and submit your non-winning California scratch cards to 2nd Chance draws for another shot at great cash prizes - there's $100,000 in total up for grabs in the Scratchers 2nd Chance Weekly Pool Draws. Submit non-winning tickets prior to the 2nd Chance submission deadline.

For every $1 spent, you get one 2nd Chance draw entry. Let's say you bought a $10 Scratcher that didn't win; the code is good for 10 entries.
