About the Florida Lottery 

Florida voters approved a constitutional amendment in the November 1986 general election to establish the Florida Lottery, which started operating on January 12, 1988. The first game available for players was a $1 scratch-off game called Millionaire, which offered a top prize of $1 million. Proceeds from the Florida Lottery benefit the Education Enhancement Trust Fund and the Bright Futures scholarship fund. 

Players in Florida who are 18 or older can play Florida Lottery draw games such as Florida Lotto, Cash Pop, and Jackpot Triple Play, along with national lotteries, Powerball, Mega Millions, and Cash4Life.

Users can also choose the Quick-Pick option, allowing the Lottery terminal to select numbers for their preferred draw game. The Florida Lottery also offers instant games ranging in price from $1 to $50, with 70% of average total sales put back into the prize pool.

Players can contact the Florida Lottery by phone at (850) 487-7787 between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. They can also send correspondence by mail to 250 Mariott Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32310. All administrative offices are closed on state holidays. 

The free Florida Lottery mobile app is available for download for iOS and Android devices on the App Store and Google Play store. Players can check the status of tickets, find winning numbers, and enter second-chance drawings using the app. They can also use the mobile app to find the nearest Florida Lottery retailer.
