Want some tips on playing the California Lottery?

Our experts pulled together some tips to help you play the CA Lottery.

Got any other tips? Let us know.

TIP #1: SCRATCHER ODDS

Scratcher ticket odds almost always beat draw games BUT the odds change daily. Check back frequently to keep up with the latest odds changes!

TIP #2: LESS POPULAR GAMES

Don't be afraid of smaller or less popular draw games. They typically have better chances of winning and less winners to split any prizes.

TIP #3: BE WEARY OF PROMISES

If a lottery "system" guarantees you a win, RUN. We have yet to find a reliable and consistent method for winning draw games.

TIP #4: CHECK PRIZE ODDS

Don't rely just on the overall odds to compare games. Smart players should check the individual prize odds before choosing a game.
