    The California Lottery wants to remind winners to sign the backs of their tickets, keep tickets in a safe place and contact Lottery officials or visit their local Lottery District Office as soon as possible.

    Tickets worth $600 or more cannot be claimed at the retailer.

    Players must submit their ticket and a claim form either by mail to Lottery Headquarters or in person at any Lottery District Office.

    Prizes will be mailed within four to six weeks and winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes.
     
    Fantasy 5 offers some of the best odds of any California Lottery game. A player wins the Fantasy 5 jackpot simply by matching five numbers out of a field of 39.

    The top prize starts at $50,000 and can top $500,000 depending on how many times it rolls over (similar to SuperLOTTO Plus® and MEGA Millions®).

    Winning numbers are drawn every day. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 20,000 California Lottery retailers.

    More than 95 cents of every Lottery dollar is returned to the community in the form of contributions to education, prizes and retail commissions, lottery officials said.

    The California Lottery contributes at least 34 cents of every dollar that players spend on Lottery products to public education and returns more than 50 percent of sales to players in the form of prizes, lottery officials said.

    Since its inception in 1985, the Lottery has contributed nearly $21 billion to California schools out of total sales of more than $56 billion.

    Retailers have earned $3.6. billion.
