About Florida Lucky Money
The Florida Lottery’s Lucky Money game starts with a $500,000 that can add up to as high as $2 million. Once the game hits the $2M cap without any winners, the jackpot rolls back down and the payouts for lower prize tiers increase.
To play Lucky Money, you must pick 4 numbers from 1-47 and a Lucky Ball number from 1-17. You must match all 5 numbers (your 4 numbers and the Lucky Ball) to hit the jackpot.
You can also opt to play EZmatch with your Lucky Money ticket to boost your winnings.
How Lucky Money EZmatch Worked
You can also pay an extra $1 to add EZmatch to your Lucky Money ticket. When you do this, a random set of 5 EZmatch numbers and an instant prize amount are printed on your ticket. If any of your chosen numbers match the EZmatch numbers, you’ll win the printed prize amount. You can claim EZmatch winnings right after purchase — the retailer will just issue a continuation ticket that you can use for the official Lucky Money drawing.
Lucky Money Drawing Schedule
Lucky Money draws are held every Tuesday and Friday at 11:15 PM Eastern Time. You can buy eligible tickets up until 10:40 PM of the day of the drawing.
Lucky Money Payout and Odds of Winning

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!
