Draws take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11:15pm local time, and the Florida Lotto Numbers page is updated soon after so that you never have to wait around to find out if you have become a millionaire!

- Mark the EZMatch box if you want to play that for an extra dollar
- Select how many draws you want to play for
- Pay for your ticket
Once you’ve got your ticket, you just need to wait for the winning numbers to come in. Hold on to your slip, as you’ll need it in order to claim any prizes you win.
How to win Florida Lotto
You win the Florida Lotto jackpot by correctly matching all six of your numbers with those drawn on the date you play. There are also other cash prizes on offer for matching as few as three main numbers, and a free ticket if you match two numbers.
When you get your Florida Lotto ticket, it will be printed with a random multiplier: 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 10x. If you match between three and five numbers, the base prize amount will be increased according to this multiplier.
For example, if you get a 3x multiplier on your ticket and you match three numbers, the base prize of $5 will be multiplied by three and your final prize amount will be worth $15. The multiplier does not apply to the jackpot.
Add Double Play to your Florida Lotto ticket to enter your numbers into a second drawing, which offers a top prize worth $250,000. The Double Play drawing takes place straight after the main Lotto draw and you play both using the same numbers.
The prize multiplier printed on your ticket is also valid in the Double Play draw, so you can win up to $35,000 by matching five numbers. As is the case in the main draw, the multiplier does not apply if you win the top prize, which stays at its base value of $250,000.
For an additional $1, you can add EZMatch to your ticket to get the chance to win instant prizes. When you add it, six EZMatch numbers will be printed on your ticket, below the Lotto numbers you picked. Alongside each number will be a prize amount – if one of those EZMatch numbers matches one of the Lotto numbers on your ticket, you win the associated prize.
For example, if you pick the number 30 to play as one of your Lotto numbers, and one of your EZMatch numbers is also 30, you win the prize stated on the ticket.
