Florida Lotto tickets cost $1 per play. To play Florida Lotto, pick six numbers from 1 through 53 on your Florida Lotto play slip, or mark the Quick Pick box and let the terminal randomly pick some or all of your numbers for you. Players win Florida Lotto prizes by matching three, four, five or six of the winning numbers, in any order, drawn in the official drawing for the date played. Florida Lotto is a pari-mutuel game. Actual prize amounts depend on sales and the number of winners in each prize category. If no Florida Lotto ticket matches all six winning numbers, the jackpot "rolls over," and the cash in the jackpot prize pool is carried over to the next drawing. Drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 11:00 p.m. Eastern time, and carried on 13 Lottery affiliate stations. Please check local listings.
Florida Lotto pays multimillion-dollar jackpot prizes. The advertised jackpot is an estimate of the amount the Lottery will pay a single jackpot ticket in 30 annual payments, based on projected sales for that draw period, plus funds rolled over from previous drawings if any, and the anticipated interest rate for long term investments. The Cash Option payout is each jackpot ticket's portion of the prize pool that is available immediately for investment. Cash Option payouts are approximately half of the advertised jackpot amount. Appropriate federal income taxes will be withheld from both lump sum and Annual Payments at the time payments are made. Winners who want to receive their Florida Lotto jackpot in a single Cash Option payment must claim their prizes within the first 60 days of the redemption period. If a jackpot prize is not claimed within the first 60 days of the redemption period, it will be paid out in 30 Annual Payments. Advance Play is available for up to 52 consecutive drawings (26 weeks). If you claim a prize on a winning Advance Play ticket before all of the draws on the ticket have occurred, you will be issued a replacement ticket for the remaining draws with the same play numbers as the original ticket. If you have questions about any of them, see the Florida Lottery Website. You can also see information on previous winners and jackpot sizes. The odds of winning by selecting all 6 numbers are 1 in 22,957,480.
