About

Florida Lotto is among the largest state lotteries in the U.S., however it has drastically changed since its launch on 7 May, 1988. It is run by Florida Lottery, a government-run organization which organizes lots of lottery type games throughout Florida. Since the beginning it was all going according to the plan for this lottery – it took only 21 days to find their first jackpot winner - $14 million for a single family. In 1991 December they advertised a Millionaire month were they promised a minimum of $10 million jackpot for each drawing.

Florida Lotto since its introduction held a 6/49 drawing format which brought new millionaires frequently. However, due to the Powerball introduction in the Florida state, Florida Lotto tickets sales reduced and the organizers had to experiment with the rules and jackpots in order not to be overshadowed by a larger multi-state lottery. Therefore, the main game format was changed to 6/53 and kept like this since then.

Florida Lotto was introduced not only as an opportunity for someone to become an instant millionaire but also as a means for improving local education. This is way up until these days Florida lotto remains as one of the most generous lotteries in the world not only giving 35% of the revenue to the special funds but also providing a lot of additional help on tragic occasions such as for cities damaged by hurricanes, floods and etc.

Interesting fact:

Florida Lotto is the only lottery in the world that has offered a multiplier option for the jackpot win, but not the lower tier winnings which had cost an additional $2 or $3. Suffice to say, that the option did not seem attractive to the players and was removed after approximately one year.

Prizes and Odds

The odds for winning the jackpot offered by Florida lotto are among the best there ever was. This is mainly because there are no additional numbers drawn to the main 6 numbers. However, for the same reason there are only 5 winning tiers in comparison to Powerball\'s 9 tiers or EuroMillions' – 12 tiers. To win anything you should guess correctly 2 balls out of six drawn. Even though this, the lowest tier does not give cash prizes it awards the player with a free ticket for the next drawing. For additional tiers players have to guess 3, 4 or 5 out of 6 balls drawn. In order to win the jackpot you have to get right all 6 balls.

Florida Lotto Odds

As you see above, the odds for winning the jackpot are just above 1 in 22 million. These are actually very good odds because other lotteries offer the odds that are 5 or even 25 times worse. For example, EuroMillions jackpot odds are 1 in 116 million while SuperEnalotto jackpots requires 1 in 622 million chance of winning. Lower tier odds are above average if compared to the other lotteries, however an overall chance of winning is very similar whereas only EuroMillions gives overall odds of 1 in 13.

Also, Florida Lotto offers a multiplier option for non-jackpot winnings – Lotto Xtra. The option is very similar to the one that other American Lotteries offer, for example, Mega Millions Megaplier option or Powerball\'s Powerplay. This feature to Florida lotto was introduced after an unsuccessful attempt to present a unique feature – multiplier for the jackpot. Lotto Xtra, however is a very popular option among players because it allows to multiply one\'s non-jackpot winnings by up to 5 times. Moreover, not only Florida Lotto launched an extra winning tier exclusive to the Lotto xtra players but also they guarantee a x5 multiplier for those players who correctly guess 3 out of 6 numbers.
