About Florida Powerball
This is a game that is played in a number of other states and as with other games that are offered by the Florida Lottery, the Florida Powerball profits are transferred to the Trust Fund to help benefit the state’s education.
It costs $2 to play the Florida Powerball but if you play the Power Play it is $3 per play. The jackpots in this game can get pretty steep and the record highest jackpot was $587.5 million and this was shared by two people. One who lived in Missouri and the other person lived in Arizona. This was won on November 28, 2012.
As far as setting the jackpot for the Florida Powerball, the MUSL sets the advertised jackpot. The jackpots get calculated based on the sales for the drawing, any funds that may have rolled over from a previous drawing, as well as current interest rates for investments long-term. For every $2 that is spent on a ticket, about 32% is allocated to the prize pool.
As far as Power Play, this is an additional feature that is added on to the Florida Powerball game and offers players the chance to win as much as $2 million. When a ticket is purchased, you can add another $1 to play the Power Play and this allows you a chance to win as much as 4 times the non-jackpot prize. If you can match 5 numbers, that is $2 million!
