We wanted to get an up close look at how this supplemental Lottery money is playing a role in the academic success at E.C. Reems, so we took our cameras to the East Bay campus! You can see for yourself by watching our video report—www.calottery.com/LotteryHome/happenings/lottery-tv/funding-education-videos/?v=supplemental-funding-in-action&page=2.

California public schools are getting an additional financial boost with the sale of the Big 6 Bingo Scratchers® game. For a $5 investment, players get six bingo cards and a chance to win up to $75,000 in cash. This is the first Lottery Bingo game offering six cards on one ticket. Previously, there were no more than four cards to play on one ticket. Additional features of this game are an extra “free” space on each card, up to a 10X multiplier and a $50 fast spot. Through the first four weeks of sales, Big 6 Bingo has sold about $9.3 million worth of tickets. For more information about the game, and how to play, look here: www.calottery.com/play/scratchers-games/$5-scratchers/big-6-bingo-863.

The winning doesn’t stop there–like all Lottery Scratchers games, Big 6 Bingo comes with second chances to win the top prizes. Just subscribe to our 2nd Chance Program and submit any non-winning Big 6 Bingo Scratchers ticket codes for another chance to win.

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 96 cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at (800)-GAMBLER.
