The Florida Lottery is one of a small number of jurisdictions that sells the Powerball Double Play option, in addition to offering the multi-state games Mega Millions and Powerball. If you pay an additional dollar, you may enter your numbers into a second lottery with a total prize pool of $10 million.
The History of the Florida Lottery
It all started in 1986, when Floridians voted in favor of a constitutional amendment creating a state lottery to fund educational programs. On January 18, 1988, six days before the scheduled release date, the first tickets went on sale. In only 17 days, the Florida Lottery was able to pay back the $15.5 million in startup funds it had borrowed from the state, plus interest.
The Florida lottery has seen several modifications since 2016. Play 4 and Play 5 have also been renamed Pick 4 and Pick 5 to reflect the new names given to the other daily draws.
A Panamanian lady made news in August 2017 when she won a $30 million prize on the Florida Lotto by using an online concierge service to place her bets. Aura Dominguez Canto had the Florida Lottery buy legitimate tickets on her behalf from her residence in California so that she could participate in all of the drawings they held during the month. When they called to tell her she won, she immediately booked a flight to Tallahassee to collect her enormous prize money.
Now, ticket sales help the Florida Lottery generate much-needed revenue for state-wide educational programs. Since its inception in 1988, the Lottery has contributed over $35 billion to education, helping over 800,000 individuals attend college with the help of the Bright Futures Scholarship.

Gaining Florida Lottery Success
Anyone who has ever played the Florida Lottery but then been too lazy to check their ticket in the shop may now check their winnings online.
A new app has been released by the Florida Lottery that lets users check the status of their tickets by scanning their barcodes.
Users may create and store preferred numbers on digital playslips that can be used to buy tickets, and they can see current jackpots and winning numbers for prior games, in addition to using the Check My Ticket feature and entering tickets into second chance contests.
If you own an iOS or Android device, you may download the Florida Lottery’s new app without spending a dime.
You should know that the Florida Lottery does not permit any sort of wagering, betting, or payment using the app.
The Florida Lottery App features
The app’s functionality extends beyond displaying the winning numbers. There are a plethora of different ways it may improve your Florida Lottery play:
