The Florida Lotto is the state’s original and longest-running lottery game. You have to pick 6 numbers from 1 to 53. To win the jackpot, you must match all 6 winning numbers drawn — a 1 in 22,957,480 chance. You stand a 1 in 71 chance to win at least the minimum $5 prize, though

Florida Lotto jackpots start at $2 million and roll over until somebody wins.

You can also opt to play XTRA or EZmatch to boost your winnings.

How Florida Lotto XTRA Works

You can pay an additional $1 to mark your Florida Lotto ticket as an XTRA entry. When you do this, you get the chance to increase any non-jackpot prizes you might win.

Florida Lotto XTRA tickets that match 3, 4, or 5 winning numbers automatically multiply the corresponding prize by the XTRA multiplier that was randomly assigned to that draw. XTRA tickets that match 2 numbers, meanwhile, automatically win a free Florida Lotto XTRA ticket for the next draw.

How Florida Lotto EZmatch Works

You can also pay an extra $1 to add EZmatch to your Florida Lotto ticket. When you do this, a random set of 6 EZmatch numbers and an instant prize amount are printed on your ticket. If any of your chosen numbers match the EZmatch numbers, you’ll win the printed prize amount. You can claim EZmatch winnings right after purchase — the retailer will just issue a continuation ticket that you can use for the official Florida Lotto drawing.

Florida Lotto Drawing Schedule

Florida Lotto draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 11:15 PM Eastern Time. You have until 10:40 PM on the day of the draw to buy eligible tickets.

Florida Lotto Payout

The Florida Lotto has a starting jackpot of $2 million, which rolls over when nobody wins. The rest of the prize tiers vary depending on ticket sales.
