The California Lottery’s latest tantalizing promotion has players talking and entries pouring in! Our Ultimate Destination Experience has been under way for a week – allowing players to express their creativity while getting a chance to win a perfect getaway experience paired with great food.

“In less than two weeks we’ve received nearly 1,000 entries for this dreamy prize,” said Russ Lopez, Deputy Director of Corporate Communications for the California Lottery. “The beautiful San Diego area, wonderful gourmet food and two days of pampering at a beautiful resort has piqued the interest of our players. If you’ve never tried one of our popular Scratchers® games, then now is the time to give it a try. But remember€”you must follow the rules!”

The Lottery is partnering with the gorgeous Hotel del Coronado in Coronado. Built in 1888, the Hotel del Coronado is a National Historic Landmark located along the beach in the San Diego region. With its iconic red-shingled roof cast against the deep blue ocean water, the lucky winners will receive a two night stay in one of the hotel’s lux rooms. Our lucky winners will also receive a “That’s S’moré” spa package. The spa treatment includes a side-by-side 50-minute Swedish massage given in the Couples Suite. After nearly an hour of massage bliss they’ll head out to the sand for a private beach bonfire complete with s’mores, champagne and a spectacular Pacific Ocean view.

And what’s a stay at one of Southern California’s best destination resorts without a top-notch meal? Our winner will also enjoy a gourmet four-course dinner for two paired with wine at 1500 Ocean, also conveniently located at the Hotel del Coronado.
