Florida Lotto tickets can be purchased from lottery retailers in the Sunshine State itself, but if you don’t happen to live in the state you can buy Florida Lotto tickets online instead. However you buy them, your odds of winning the Florida Lotto jackpot – or any other prize – are exactly the same.

The Florida Lotto game was introduced in 1988 with the aim of raising money for education in the state as well as providing Floridians with the chance to win a life-changing jackpot for themselves. So far the game has done extremely well in achieving those aims, and the Florida Lottery has raised billions of dollars since the first Florida Lotto ticket was sold.

When you buy a Florida Lotto ticket you need to select six numbers from the range 1 to 53. If your numbers match the six that are drawn in the Florida Lotto game then you win the jackpot. Smaller prizes are available for those who match two, three, four, or five of the numbers drawn. The Florida Lotto draws themselves are held every Wednesday and Saturday and players can purchase tickets for a single draw or for several consecutive draws using the same numbers.

Like the Powerball lottery, Florida Lotto gives players the opportunity to increase the value of certain non-jackpot prizes. A multiplier - 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x – is randomly generated on every ticket. If you match three, four or five numbers, your prize will be multiplied by the figure on your ticket.


The table below shows the five prize levels in Florida Lotto. The jackpot starts at $1 million and rolls over if there are no winners. The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 7.61.

Florida Lotto tickets also come with an EZmatch option if you pay a small additional fee. Six EZmatch numbers will be printed on your entry, and if these match up to any of the Florida Lotto numbers on your ticket, you win the associated prize amount instantly without even having to wait for the draw. You can also play the Florida Lotto Double Game for an extra $1 – this is an additional draw with a top prize of $250,000 and your same numbers from the main game will be entered if you opt in.
