15 more vaccinated residents will win $50,000 on June 11th and ten vaccinated residents will win $15 million on June 15th. Winners do not received prizes until they have received both vaccinations. Once a person is vaccinated, they are automatically entered into the lottery.


Who wants to be a millionaire?

In attempt to inspire Californians to get the coronavirus vaccine, Governor Gavin Newsom announced major incentives, including launching a $116.5 million giveaway.

Once a person is vaccinated, they are automatically entered. On June 4th and June 11th, 15 winners have a shot of $50,000. Then on June 15th, ten winners will be selected for $15 million in cash.

70% of CA’s adult population has received at least one COVID-19 vaccine thus far. If you are not part of the 70%, you are still in luck. Last Thursday, Newsom notified Californians the next two million people to get fully vaccinated can get a $50 card in addition to the large cash prizes.
