FLORIDA LOTTERY UNVEILS NEW PLAYER'S GUIDE WEBSITE
~ Website will be a best-in-class platform for tips on how to play and win responsibly ~
TALLAHASSEE - Today, the Florida Lottery launched the Player's Guide, a new best-in-class website with detailed information on how to play and win the lottery responsibly. The Player's Guide will serve as a one-stop-shop for the latest tips, resources, documents and how-to information for every Florida Lottery player - from beginners to experienced players.
The new website will be an extension of the Florida Lottery's current website, www.flalottery.com. The Player's Guide homepage, which can be accessed directly at playersguide.flalottery.com will drive players to two sections: "Play Responsibly" and "Win Responsibly." Content within the Play Responsibly section includes video tips for safer gaming, a discretionary income budget calculator, a detailed explanation of odds, and a myth vs. fact quiz. The Win Responsibly section includes information on where to claim a prize, payment options, documents needed to claim and how to manage winnings.
"I am proud of the work the Florida Lottery is doing to ensure its players are informed about how to play responsibly," said Governor Ron DeSantis. "Knowing how and when to play is just as important as winning, and the new Player's Guide website helps with those efforts. I look forward to seeing more great initiatives from the Florida Lottery as they work to maximize revenues for education in our great state."
"Our new website provides Florida Lottery players additional informational tools for playing our games," said Florida Lottery Secretary Randall Hunt. "Whether calculating how much they can afford to spend, discovering the odds of a certain game, or figuring out where to claim a prize, the Player's Guide is a one-stop-shop for players to play and win responsibly. This is another way the Florida Lottery is ensuring our players have the best chance at success - while remembering that every ticket is a winner for education in our state."
"The Player's Guide is a prime example of the great work the Florida Lottery is doing to promote responsible gaming," said Lynne Roiter, Chair of the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee and Secretary General of the World Lottery Association. "With this new tool, they are empowering their players to be successful, both as a player and as a winner. The World Lottery Association looks forward to seeing the success of this wonderful initiative."
