The service provides an information stream about current lottery games run by the state of California. It serves information needs of partners by providing updated reports of games played, winners' names and amounts won, and related updates about the games.
API methods support retrieval of current game information including the most recent numbers drawn and jackpot amounts.
Californians have long had the ability to track lottery updates on their mobile phones, or get updates via the lottery's Twitter account. However, with the release of the CA Lottery API, developers may have entered the scene as California's latest player of the odds.
