Florida LotteryFlorida Lottery: Florida lottery to roll out new gameRating:

By Todd Northrop

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida Lottery is launching a new draw game called Jackpot Triple Play with Combo next week.

The new game, which goes on sale Jan. 30, will replace Lucky Money, which ends Jan. 29.

Jackpot Triple Play is unique in that for $1 players get a triple chance to win the jackpot, as each ticket has three sets of numbers to match with the winning numbers drawn. In other states similar games are typically offered for $2 per play.

The game's jackpot rolls over and down to make bigger prizes, according to a press release from the lottery.

Jackpots start at $500,000 and can roll over to reach $2 million before rolling down to increase the lower-prize levels in each drawing until the jackpot is won. Players win by matching three or more numbers from the same set to the winning numbers drawn. Players can get an extra chance to win by combining all matches on the ticket by adding Combo for $1 more.

The new game's tickets go on sale Jan. 30. Drawings will be held Tuesday and Friday nights at 11:15 p.m., eastern time, with the first drawing being held on Feb. 1.  The outgoing Lucky Money game currently has the same draw days and time.

Lucky Money ticket sales end at 10:40 p.m. EST January 29, with the final drawing held that evening at 11:15 p.m. If there is no jackpot winner in the final Lucky Money drawing, the jackpot will roll and carry over to the Jackpot Triple Play jackpot for the first drawing.

    The Florida Lottery keeps their 100% true drawing status with this draw game. I found this under Results, State Lottery Report Card.

     Wishing all involved Good Luck and have fun!

      We've been reading the fine print, http://199.250.30.201/site/jackpotTriplePlay-howToPlay.

      As far as RNG or Computer Generated Numbers goes:

      You get to pick 1 line and the government quick picks the other 2 lines in that 3 line (triple play) scheme,

      Or, go all out and let the government quick pick all 3 lines.

        Why can't they bring All or Nothing or even Keno to Florida? This games sounds like Georgia Jumbo Bucks Lottery when hardly anybody wins the jackpot prize. It keeps rolling over.

          I have no problem with RNG picking some numbers for me (same as a Quick Pick ticket). I do have a big problem with RNG picking the drawing's winning numbers...

            We've tried government selected quick picks before; sometimes just to see what not to play.

            However, we get our best reactions from the store clerks when we cash in our self picked numbers.

            Kid-you-not, she says, "Wow! we don't get many wins that big on these games."

              If you look at the Florida Lottery website's "Top Prize Winners & Retailer Information" for Lotto and Fantasy 5, it seems more than half of the winning tickets are listed as Quick Picks so RNG Quick Picks win often in Florida.

                There were some sites like Powerball and my home state of WI that said 70 to 80% of plays were government quick picks.

                Must be something different going on there in FL.

                  I wish California would offer a roll-down game.

                    It’s a dollar for now, just you wait till they start getting multiple winners, then it will jump to $2. If they get pushback from the players, they can always say “ well, these games go for $2 in other States, come on guys, let’s play fair.” They have a backup plan for irate players, and that’s it. You win by losing they say.

                      I know quick picks or computer picks are all RNG.  Government does not pick the numbers, the computer does all the time.

                      What I mean is the #'s for the lottery, are they ball or RNG drawings.  That's a sticking point with me.

                        government owned hardware and software; thus, government generated numbers.

                        even if it's third party, government approved and sanctioned administrated process; ergo, government generated numbers.

                        if it's not government run, ask them to see the computer terminal's electronic schematics, machine code and/or source code, see what happens.

                        likely the responses will include words like: security, proprietary, copyright, intellectual property.

                        all intended to cover the real phrase, government owned and run; hence, government generated numbers.

                            IDC who owns/operates the lottery, that is not, nor ever was my point.

                            All I want to know is when you play are the numbers generated RNG or by random balls getting drawn?
