Can I purchase Florida Lottery tickets over the Internet? Do you have a subscription service?

No. The Florida Lottery does not offer the sale of Lottery tickets by mail, fax, or via the Internet, nor do we currently offer a subscription service. Tickets must be purchased from any of the more than 13,000 authorized Florida Lottery retailers in the state of Florida. Find an authorized Florida Lottery retailer.

When does a FLORIDA LOTTO ticket matching two numbers not receive a free ticket prize?

Adding the XTRA feature to your FLORIDA LOTTO ticket costs an additional $1, and matching 2 of 6 numbers would constitute a free ticket. Such a ticket will have XTRA: YES posted slightly above the draw date and ticket cost. Therefore, if you have matched 2 of 6 numbers, but within the lower portion of your tickets, it reads XTRA: NO, your ticket is not a winner. Visit the LOTTO section of the website for an in-depth explanation about the FLORIDA LOTTO with XTRA feature.

I have a POWERBALL, MEGA MILLIONS or CASH4LIFE ticket from another state. Can I cash it in Florida since this is a multi-state game?

All POWERBALL®, MEGA MILLIONS® and CASH4LIFE® prizes must be claimed in the state where the ticket was purchased, and all Florida POWERBALL, MEGA MILLIONS and CASH4LIFE® prizes, including the jackpot, must be paid in Florida like all other Florida Lottery games.

For more information on this exciting multi-state game, please visit the POWERBALL, MEGA MILLIONS or CASH4LIFE section of our website.
