The jackpot is listed as $51 million by the Florida Lottery, not $52 million.  Perhaps it will rise to $52 million (or more) by draw time, but that's the way it is right now.

Yes I know..I apologize.Someone had asked what was the cash option for the $51million so I looked up the $52 million jp that was won in April 2010 to show what a cash option look like for a prize $1million off...I also stand corrected because someone just pointed out that the largest jackpot was over one hundred million back in 1990..WOW..and yes I too think it's going to increase by WednesdayHyper

    Actually the highest JP was in 1990 when it was $106.5 million, and 6 people won that one! I cant post a link, but its on Florida lottery timeline.

    Wow.I had no idea..thanks for the correction..so how did it get that high if $52 million is the longest running jackpot?

      The only explaination the story gives is that it was befor MM and PB were added in FL. http://www.lotterypost.com/news/264716   

      Those three-plus months of rollovers have bumped the jackpot up to $50 million for Saturday night's drawing. That's far from the state record of $106.5 million in 1990. But that was before the national Powerball came to Florida in 2009 and Mega Millons started this year, offering more ways for Floridians to ante up.

        the florida lotto was only about 2 years old at the time, so it was still fresh, drawings were once per week and the starting pot was normally around $7 million. Next rollover was around $14 million, etc... There was no MM or PB at the time, and there was nowhere near the amount of scratch offs as there is today. There may have been cash 3, but that was pretty much it.  Now it starts out at $2 million and trickles up from there.

            New to Florida and new to this forum ... hi everyone! See Ya!

            Florida Lotto is my favorite and I play every draw, usually buying 3 to 5 QPs.  Pretty exciting that the jackpot is so big!

            Congrats Win for your win. That must have been absolutely thrilling!

                Thank you..I see. hmm well I guess having 2 drawings a week is a win win for the florida lottery since the odds are worse now as oppose to 22 years ago..a drawing once a week and the rollover doubled...seem to me the odds and jp was better then versus now.thank you again..See Ya!

                    Of course they were, because my three QPs were all mostly low numbers Unhappy .... lots of single digits and teens, highest number was a 32! Frustrating!
