How to Play

For just $2, you could win Florida’s original jackpot game, FLORIDA LOTTO ® ! Jackpots start at $1 million and roll until there is a winner, with drawings held twice a week. Plus, every ticket purchased includes a randomly generated “multiplier” number that automatically increases non-jackpot cash prizes by two, three, four, five, or ten times!

Players also have the option to “add-on” features to their FLORIDA LOTTO purchase for $1 more per play including Double Play ™ for the chance to win cash prizes of up to $250,000 in an additional drawing and/or EZmatch ™ for the chance to win instant cash prizes of up to $500!

To play, visit any Florida Lottery retail location and either use a new FLORIDA LOTTO digital or paper playslip to choose your numbers, Quick Pick, or make other play selections, or tell the retailer. Each playslip contains 10 panels (A-J). In each panel played:

  1. Select six numbers from 1 through 53 or mark the QP (Quick Pick) box in the panel and let the terminal randomly pick some or all of your numbers.
  2. For a chance to win cash prizes in an additional drawing held immediately after the FLORIDA LOTTO drawing, using the same numbers played on your FLORIDA LOTTO ticket, select the Double Play box. Double Play costs $1 more per play.
  3. For a chance to win cash instantly, select the EZmatch box in a panel for $1 more per play.
  4. To play the same numbers for more than one draw, simply tell the retailer how many advance draws you wish to play or select the number of draws in the Advance Play section of your playslip.
  5. Mark the JACKPOT COMBO box for a $2 POWERBALL ® , a $2 FLORIDA LOTTO ® , and a $2 MEGA MILLIONS ® Quick Pick ticket for the next available draw date.
  6. Give your completed playslip and payment to the retailer. You will receive a ticket printed with your numbers, draw date(s) and the total cost of the ticket. For each panel with EZmatch selected, you will receive a separate ticket with your FLORIDA LOTTO and EZmatch numbers. FLORIDA LOTTO tickets cannot be canceled. Please check your ticket(s) before you leave the store. You are responsible for the accuracy of your ticket(s).
  7. Check the official drawing results to see if you’re a winner! Draw results are available on this website, at authorized Florida Lottery retailers and by calling (850) 921-PLAY (7529). You may also watch the drawings online.

Drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday nights at 11:15 p.m., Eastern Time. Tickets can be purchased until 10:40 p.m., Eastern Time, on the night of the draw. Tickets purchased after 10:40 p.m. will be for the next draw.

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 continuation ticket for the remaining draws with the same play numbers as the original ticket.

The advertised jackpot prize will be paid in annual payments over 25 years, or as a single cash payment of a lesser amount. See game rules.

All non-jackpot prizes are set prize amounts.

Base Prize amounts for matching 3 of 6, 4 of 6, or 5 of 6 cannot be won and are shown as a starting point of reference for the calculated value of the multiplied prizes.

All prizes are set prize amounts.

Base Prize amounts for matching 3 of 6, 4 of 6, or 5 of 6 cannot be won and are shown as a starting point of reference for the calculated value of the multiplied prizes.

With EZmatch ™ , you can add instant fun to FLORIDA LOTTO! Just choose the EZmatch play option, for an additional $1 per play for a chance to win cash instantly.

Sample FLORIDA LOTTO Ticket with EZmatch

In this example, your ticket costs
$4 ($2 for FLORIDA LOTTO, $1
for Double Play and $1 for EZmatch)

EZmatch on a FLORIDA LOTTO
Advance Play will add $1 to the
cost of the ticket

  • Match any of your EZmatch numbers with any of your FLORIDA LOTTO numbers, and win the amount shown instantly
  • You can win EZmatch up to 6 times on each ticket
  • In this example, you matched 07, 15, 25, 36, 38 and 42 and won a total of $500

When you select EZmatch, six EZmatch numbers and instant prize amounts will print below the FLORIDA LOTTO numbers on your ticket. Match any EZmatch number with any FLORIDA LOTTO number on your ticket, and win the prize amount shown instantly. You can win up to six times on a single FLORIDA LOTTO with EZmatch ticket.

The Florida Lottery will hold official FLORIDA LOTTO drawings in which six out of 53 numbers will be drawn at random. If your six numbers match the six winning numbers drawn in the official FLORIDA LOTTO drawing for the date played, you win the jackpot. Match three, four, or five of the winning numbers to win other cash prizes that are automatically multiplied by the multiplier number printed on the ticket. Players who match just two numbers win a free FLORIDA LOTTO Quick Pick ticket for the next available drawing.

The multiplier number is generated at random, from two, three, four, five, or ten. If a FLORIDA LOTTO player matches three, four, or five winning numbers, he/she wins an amount equal to the original prize amount multiplied by the multiplier that was generated on their ticket. If the player matches just two winning numbers, he/she wins a free FLORIDA LOTTO Quick Pick ticket for the next available draw.

FLORIDA LOTTO with Double Play players who match the six winning numbers in the Double Play drawing win the $250,000 top prize. Those who match five, four, or three winning numbers win other great cash prizes that are automatically multiplied by the multiplier number printed on the ticket. FLORIDA LOTTO with Double Play players who match just two winning numbers win a free FLORIDA LOTTO with Double Play Quick Pick ticket for the next available draw.

Players may choose to receive their portion of the FLORIDA LOTTO jackpots in a one-time Cash Option payment or in 30 annual payments. The Cash Option payment is the amount required on the day of the drawing (or if the drawing is held on a Saturday or holiday, the business day prior to the drawing) to fund the applicable jackpot prize paid over 30 years, less applicable taxes. FLORIDA LOTTO jackpot winners who want to receive a single Cash Option payment must claim their prizes within the first 60 days of the 180-day redemption period. Applicable federal income taxes will be withheld from both Cash Option and annual payments at the time payments are made. Read more about claiming Lottery prizes.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

Playing PICK 3 ™ is easy. It’s the game where you can play today and get paid today.

Simply select your lucky numbers and play it your way any day – twice a day. Midday and evening drawings offer two chances to play – and win!

To play, pick up a PICK 3 playslip at an authorized Florida Lottery retailer or use your Florida Lottery mobile app to create a playslip.

To Play at a Retailer

2. Select the play type: Straight, Box, Straight/Box, Combo, Front Pair, or Back Pair.

3. Select the amount you want to play: $0.50 or $1 (all Straight/Box plays cost $1; Combo plays cost $1.50 to $6.00).

If no draw time is marked, the terminal will automatically print a ticket for the next available draw. If BOTH is selected, two separate tickets will print – one for the midday drawing and one for the evening drawing.

6. To Advance Play the same numbers and play types up to 14 consecutive days for the selected draw time(s), simply mark the number in the “Days” section on your playslip.

How to Win

Players who match all three of the winning numbers drawn in the official PICK 3™ drawing for the date played can win up to $500, depending on the play type purchased and the amount played. Front Pair or Back Pair players who match two numbers in exact order can win up to $50.

Unlike the Lottery’s other Draw games, which are pari-mutuel in design (that is, players are vying for a portion of what is in the prize pool), PICK 2, PICK 3, PICK 4, and PICK 5 offer set prize payouts. Therefore, the Lottery has established a $8 million liability limit for PICK 3 for any particular three-digit number for each drawing. Should any three digit combination (for example 777) be purchased often enough in a single drawing that would result in the liability limit being exceeded, the Lottery will “cut off” further sales of that specific number combination. In addition, no Front Pair or Back Pair that involves the first two or last two digits, respectively, of the three-digit number will be allowed for that drawing. Players that have already played those numbers will still win the full amount of the set prize even if the liability limit has been met. For more details on this issue, please refer to the Pick 3 game rule, section (1)(i).

*Examples above use $1 PICK 3 plays. Combo play examples are $3 and $6 plays.
