How to Play California Millions

Daily Sweepstakes

You get one entry per day (midnight to 11:58 p.m. constitutes a “day”) through April 10, and you can score an additional entry by sharing one friend’s email per day. Each day at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Southwest will randomly select one winner to win a set number of Rapid Rewards points that varies each day but ranges from 20,000 to 1,000,000 points.

Return to the SWACaliforniaMillions.com site each day to “spin” the prize wheel for a chance at earning Southwest points.
