We believe this is important because most lotteries only provide players with minimal amount of information: the odds of each winning combination occurring; the overall probability of having a winning ticket; the price of each ticket; the game format; the total number of combinations; and a few other items.

However, this page fills in the missing blanks. Included here are the complete odds and probabilities of every winning and losing ticket. It provides you with a comparison of winners to losers, the monies collected, the monies distributed back to players, and more.

Lottery Power Picks has taken every effort to ensure that this summary information is correct by reading and bookmarking all information provided by the organizing lottery body. But, in certain instances, clearly defined rules are not written. In those instances, we made assumptions that are linguistically consistent with the rules. Should any information be incorrect, please inform us so that we may correct it. We hope you find this information useful in understanding the lottery you play.

About The Florida Lotto is a Florida State lottery. It is governed by the Florida Lottery.

Format Florida Lotto requires a player to make 1 choice: (1) Pick 6 numbers out of a set of 53 white balls. If the player picks the same numbers as those that are drawn in the next drawing, the player wins the Jackpot prize. Smaller prizes are awarded for other combinations. There is no bonus ball in this lottery.

Class Florida Lotto is a Mid-size Lottery. We classify it as such because its Jackpot Parity is approximately \$18.8 million, which is over \$10 million and less than \$100 million.

Prizes The minimum Florida Lotto jackpot prize is
replace 1
. Although all other cash prizes are predefined as well, it must be noted that payouts are based on a pari-mutuel basis based on percentage. This means that if there are less winners than expected, the payouts will be more, and vice-versa. These are summarized in the table below. If no one wins the jackpot amount, a portion of the proceeds is rolled forward to the next drawing, allowing the jackpot to grow. Only the jackpot prizes are established as a fixed amount and all other are a pari-mutuel amount of an allocated percentage prize pool.

Note that while 63.50% is allocated to the jackpot prize pool, the actual jackpot may be substantially less than this calculated amount because it is typically predetermined and publicized prior to each drawing. Payouts for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th place prizes are always rounded down to the nearest \$0.50.
