Florida’s original jackpot game FLORIDA LOTTO can be played for $1. Lottery drawings are held twice a week. There are more than 1,000 jackpot winners for this game until now. To win instant cash, players have to add EZmatch™. They can add XTRA to multiply their non-jackpot cash winnings by two, three, four, or five times also by doing this.
You cannot purchase tickets over the internet. You will have to buy them from any of the more than 13,000 authorized Florida Lottery retailers in the state of Florida. Players can purchase advance play tickets also.
Playing is very simple. There will be ten panels in each play slip. Try to select six numbers from 1 through 53. You can also mark the QP (Quick Pick) box in the panel and wait for the terminal to pick some or all of your numbers randomly. Select the XTRA box. XTRA to multiply your winnings on non-jackpot cash prizes. The cost is $1 more per play. You can notice an “XTRA YES” in the FLORIDA LOTTO with XTRA tickets.
Just tell the retailer how many advance draws you wish to play if you would like to play with the same numbers for more than one draw. For this, you can also select the number of draws in the Advance Play section of your playslip. After that, you should mark the JACKPOT COMBO box for a $2 POWERBALL®, FLORIDA LOTTO® with XTRA fpr a $2, and a $2 MEGA MILLIONS® Quick Pick ticket for the draw dates that are available next.
After doing everything, you have to give your completed playslip and payment to the retailer, for which you will get a ticket printed with your numbers, draw date(s), and the total cost of the ticket. There will be a separate ticket with your FLORIDA LOTTO and EZmatch numbers or each panel with EZmatch selected. You will have to check the official drawing results if you are the winner. The results will be available on the official website. You can even call the retailer to know the results.
Drawings are usually held on Wednesday and Saturday at 11.15 pm (Eastern Time). You can purchase your ticket until 10.40 pm (Eastern Time). Tickets purchased after that will be for the next draw.
If you have your six numbers match the six winning numbers drawn in the official drawing for the date played, you will be the winner of the FLORIDA LOTTO jackpot. There are cash prizes for matching three, four, or five of the winning numbers.
Before each drawing, the XTRA multiplier number will be selected at random from 2 through 5. You can win an amount equal to the original prize amount multiplied by the multiplier that was drawn before the drawing of your FLORIDA LOTTO with XTRA player matches three, four, or five winning numbers. There will be a free FLORIDA LOTTO ticket for the next available draw for the player who matches just two winning numbers.
For those who claim a prize on a winning Advance Play ticket before all of the draws on the ticket have occurred, a continuation ticket for the remaining draws with the same play numbers as the original ticket will be issued.
