CA Lottery Launches Biggest-Ever $20M Scratcher

Wednesday February 23rd 2022

California Lottery players now have a shot at winning the state's largest-ever Scratchers prize, $20 million. The record-setting new scratch-off game, Set for Life Millionaire Edition, went on sale Monday.

Before the game's launch the biggest prize Golden State players could win on a Scratcher was $10 million.

"Our team is always looking closely at what’s popular among players so we can offer new and exciting ways for Californians to have a little fun and also support our mission, which is to raise extra money for public schools," California Lottery Director Alva Johnson said.

Set for Life Millionaire Edition's life-changing top prize is offered as an annuity, paid out as $800,000 yearly installments over 25 years.

Winners who are US citizens will have 24% of the prize withheld for federal taxes before it is paid. That brings  each annual payout to $608,000 - $15.2 million over 25 years.

Set for Life Millionaire Edition is on sale statewide and costs $30 per ticket. There are 35 ways to win instantly, multiply payouts, or take home the top prize, which makes winners financially independent for life. The game joins an existing lineup of Set for Life Scratchers.
