Good news for all Californians who drove across state lines to get Powerball tickets this week.
Powerball is coming to our state.
The California State Lottery Commission met Thursday and adopted regulations to join 42 other states that participate in the lottery.
Powerball is a $2 per chance game.
By comparison, Mega Millions is one dollar per ticket. It's currently played in California, 40 other states and the Virgin Islands.
The biggest jackpot ever was a $656 million Mega Millions draw in March of this year. Winning tickets were sold in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland.
Super Lotto, also one dollar per ticket, is played only in California. Its highest-ever jackpot was $193 million.
California officials believe adding Powerball sales will add an additional $90 million to $120 million dollars in revenue to the state.
Powerball ticket sales will start in California on April 8th.
