LUCKY MONEY is the Florida Lottery's new Draw game that replaced MEGA MONEY. LUCKY MONEY features better overall odds, more winners per draw and a bigger second prize than in the MEGA MONEY game. Plus, players who add EZmatch™ for $1 more have the chance to win up to $500 instantly.
2. Can I use my old MEGA MONEY playslip to play LUCKY MONEY?
Since LUCKY MONEY has replaced MEGA MONEY, new LUCKY MONEY playslips are required to play the game. The new playslips are available at Lottery retailers statewide.
3. How do you play LUCKY MONEY?
You may either mark your selections on a LUCKY MONEY playslip or tell the retailer the numbers you wish to play. On the playslip, select four numbers from 1 to 47 and select one Lucky Ball™ number from 1 to 17, or mark the QP (Quick Pick) box in the panel and let the terminal randomly pick some or all of your numbers. For the chance to win instant cash prizes, mark the EZmatch box in the panel, or mark the box located on the left side of the playslip for all panels. EZmatch will cost $1 more per panel
4. How much do LUCKY MONEY tickets cost, and where do you play?
LUCKY MONEY tickets cost $1 per play. You can add EZmatch, for $1 more per play, for the chance to win instant cash prize of up to $500. LUCKY MONEY tickets may be purchased at any of the more than 13,000 Lottery retailers.
5. How much can I win playing LUCKY MONEY?
LUCKY MONEY players who match all four winning numbers and the Lucky Ball win the jackpot. LUCKY MONEY jackpots start at $500,000 and can roll to reach $2 million, before rolling down to increase non-jackpot cash prizes. Those who match any of the non-jackpot winning combinations will win cash prizes or a free Quick Pick ticket.
Players who add EZmatch to their LUCKY MONEY ticket have the opportunity to win up to $500 instantly by matching any of the first four EZmatch numbers with any of the first four LUCKY MONEY numbers and/or match the EZmatch Lucky Ball (LB) number with the Lucky Ball (LB) number on your ticket.
6. What are the odds of winning LUCKY MONEY?
The overall odds of winning are 1 in 11.32. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 3,032,205.
Additionally, the overall odds of winning an EZmatch prize are in 1.4.71.
7. What is EZmatch and how are the numbers generated?
EZmatch numbers are not randomly generated. When a player chooses to play EZmatch, a random number generator is used by the system to determine whether the player will be a winner or a non-winner in the EZmatch game.
Because prizes are won instantly and are not associated with a drawing, EZmatch is more like a virtual Scratch-Off game than a traditional Draw game. The prize amounts, number of wins on a ticket, and total number of winners within a designated pool size are pre-loaded into the system. Think of it like when you purchase a Scratch-Off ticket. The winning prize amounts are printed on tickets and whether or not you are a winner, or what you win, is simply a matter of chance. When it is time for a winning experience, the system will automatically print a set of EZmatch numbers to match one to five of the LUCK MONEY numbers on the ticket and the player will win the amount shown.
8. How many draws can I Advance Play on my LUCKY MONEY ticket?
Players can purchase LUCKY MONEY tickets for up to 30 consecutive draws using Advance Play. You can purchase Advance Play tickets from any authorized Florida Lottery retailer by requesting Advance Play or by using the convenient Advance Play boxes on your Florida Lottery playslip.
9. If I select Advance Play and EZmatch with my LUCKY MONEY purchase, will I receive one ticket or multiple tickets?
If you purchase an Advance Play LUCKY MONEY ticket and select the add-on feature EZmatch, you will receive one ticket listing your LUCKY MONEY numbers and your EZmatch numbers. EZmatch is an instant win, add-on feature that is not associated with draws. If you claim an EZmatch prize on a LUCKY MONEY ticket before any or all LUCKY MONEY drawings on the ticket have occurred, you will be issued a continuation ticket for the LUCKY MONEY drawing with the same play numbers as the original ticket; however, the EZmatch numbers will not be printed on the continuation ticket.
10. Can LUCKY MONEY tickets be canceled?
LUCKY MONEY tickets may be canceled by the original-selling terminal within two hours of the sales transaction, that day's close of sales, or the end of the gaming system business day (whichever occurs first). LUCKY MONEY with EZmatch tickets and LUCKY MONEY Quick Pick tickets generated as a free prize cannot be canceled.
11. How is it possible to have the same number twice on one LUCKY MONEY ticket?
To play the LUCKY MONEY game, players select four numbers from 1 through 47 and one Lucky Ball number from 1 through 17. As such, it is possible for the Lucky Ball number to repeat one of the first four numbers on your LUCKY MONEY ticket. The letters "LB" will indicate the Lucky Ball number on your ticket. LUCKY MONEY numbers are drawn from two separate sets of balls. One ball set is used to select the first four white ball numbers and a second ball set is used to select the Lucky Ball number.
