Playing the Florida Lottery

Jun 7, 2008
While the Florida lottery does not participate in either Mega Millions or Powerball, the Florida lotto has a lot of different games to offer its patrons. From the most lucrative Florida Lotto game to a multitude of instant win scratch-off games like Aces High and Big Bucks, Fla. lotto is a great way to spend a dollar two, especially since a good portion of the proceeds of the lottery go to support education in the state.

The Florida Lotto Game

The largest lottery game in the state is the Florida Lotto. Drawings for the game are held twice a week, so there are many chances to win, and each ticket only costs a dollar. To play the game, you must choose six numbers that each range from one through fifty-three. Drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and if there is no winner to claim the prize, the jackpot is rolled over to the next drawing. This means that jackpot amounts can add up pretty quickly. In addition to winning with a six number match, there are also prizes awarded for matching anywhere from three to five different numbers. These prizes are obviously much smaller than the prize for matching all six of the Florida lotto winning numbers, but it is definitely worth a dollar to give it a try.

Florida Lottery Results

If you have purchased Florida lotto tickets and are looking for a Florida lotto result, you can watch drawings on a variety of affiliated television stations or you can check the official Florida lotto website for up to the minute drawing results. Any person who has a ticket with Florida lotto winning numbers has 180 days to claim his or her prize. If you win the Florida lotto, you have two options regarding which way to receive your money, and you have sixty days to make your decision. The cash option involves getting all of the money in one lump sum. Taking the cash option typically means that you will receive less money in total, but you will be able to access it all at once. If you choose to receive payments, they will be sent to you annually for thirty years.

Other Florida Lottery Games

The Florida lottery features several games with different jackpots. There is the Florida lotto where the player selects 6 numbers between 1 and 53. Then there is the Mega Money where the player selects numbers from 1 to 44, and a megaball from 2 to 22. There is also the Fantasy 5 drawing where the player selects 5 numbers between 1 and 36. Results can be viewed online, or on television (in state) or in newspapers.

Buy Florida Lottery Tickets

If you want to buy these or any other lottery tickets, simply log onto your official state website. These sites explain how to purchase tickets, and often times tickets can be purchased online so you can play most state lotteries from the comfort of your own home. You can also refer to official state websites for custom lottery news. Many sites offer lottery number generators to help make your lottery number picking easier for you. If you would like to purchase your tickets in person, you can also visit a local lottery terminal. No matter how you choose to purchase your tickets, or which tickets you choose to buy, you're bound to have some fun!
