The California Lottery was approved by voters in 1984. Ticket sales began the following October, while Lotto game drawings began in 1986. According to California law, 87 percent of money must be spent in lottery prizes and state education. Mega Millions was introduced to the lottery's portfolio in 2005. The initial draw took place in Hollywood, with a minimum jackpot of $15 million. Californians waited in line for hours to obtain their tickets. Mega Millions is still one of the most popular lotteries in the state today. The state adopted Powerball in 2013, with the first draw taking place on April 10. California also includes five state-only lottery games, including the Daily Derby, which is based on horse racing.
