A bit of history 

It is safe to say that California Fantasy 5 is a time-checked lottery, considering the fact it was established in 1992. As of today, more than 5600 draws have taken place. The lottery is officially represented by California State Lottery, though still provided by other lottery agents such as The Lotter, for instance. It would be interesting to know that California State Lottery was launched as far back as 1984 with the purpose to provide financial aid to local schools and colleges. The only disadvantage of using the services of California State Lottery is that this agent does not sell Fantasy 5 tickets via Internet, so the only way to purchase them is to visit one of local ticket stores. Luckily, California Fantasy 5 results may be checked on the Internet. 

Rules of play

This lottery possesses a couple of notable advantages, one of which is the fact that draws take place every day at 6.30 p.m. local time. According to the rules, players are to choose five numbers from the range between 1 and 39. As usual, this may be done manually or using Quick Pick – a system that generates numbers randomly. Lottery ticket, in turn, consists of five play areas, while the minimum price is $1. Just for your interest: the most frequent number among all the California Fantasy 5 numbers drawn is 2. 
At the wish of a player, certain sequence of numbers may be played for 12 consecutive draws. In order to use this opportunity, the player needs to mark the Advance Play box in the bottom of the ticket. In other words, this is a chance to play up to 12 draws with only one ticket purchased. California Fantasy 5 results, as mentioned above, may be found at Localotto or on your lottery agent’s website. 

Second Chance

Second Chance is a great bonus this wonderful lottery offers to its players. Even though it is available only in case the ticket price is no less than $5, it is still a great investment as it allows the player to participate in an additional draw. You may find Second Chance code in the bottom of your ticket. In order to use it, log in to your account on the lottery agent’s site, go to Fantasy 5 – 2nd Chance section, type the code in the field for California Fantasy 5 numbers, and click the “Submit” button. You don't have to activate the code the week you buy the ticket, but keep in mind that it expires in 180 days since the moment of purchase. Just like in case with the general California Fantasy 5 results, the results of additional draws may be found at Localotto website. 

Winning odds

There are two factors that significantly increase chances of winning in this lottery. Firstly, draws take place every day and secondly, tickets starting from $5 provide the Second Chance option. Check California Fantasy 5 winning odds in a table below:

The overall odds of winning are estimated as 1 to 9. As you can see, the probability to win the Jackpot is really high. Just for comparison: the odds of winning Jackpot in California Super Lotto is approximately 1 to 41 million. As for other prize categories, it is enough to guess two California Fantasy 5 numbers to get a free ticket for participation in the next draw. If you are lucky enough to guess three numbers, you will receive the money prize (its amount will depend on the number of tickets sold).

Jackpot

Jackpots start from quite a modest amount – $70,000. Still, taking into account the winning odds, the game is worth the candle. And of course, Jackpot keeps growing in every draw until the lucky winner is found. Teodomiro Felix, for instance, has once won $483,377. As it turned out later, he simply picked his “lucky” California Fantasy 5 numbers that brought him $400 two years before winning the Jackpot. Another large Jackpot amounting to $393,627 was scooped by Wayne Mazey. Picking his “lucky” numbers was a part of his strategy too, by the way. As for the largest-ever California Fantasy 5 Jackpot, it was $729,505. Quite a big sum, taking into account it was won in 1992! Finally, we remind that in order to win the Jackpot, it is necessary to correctly predict five California Fantasy 5 winning numbers.

In case you win

According to the lottery rules, all the prizes are to be claimed within 180 days since the date of the winning draw (though it is probably hard to find a winner who would be waiting for so long). In case the winner does not claim the Jackpot, for instance, it will be donated for the needs of education. Unfortunately, all the prizes above $599 are subject to federal tax, the amount of which is 25% for U.S. citizens and 30% for residents of other countries. Luckily, state taxes are not collected. Check California Fantasy 5 results on our websites and may luck be on your side!
