VideoVideo: VIDEO: Florida Lottery scratch-off haul in Miami BeachRating:

We made a pit stop at a local Lottery retailer that turned out to be pretty famous

By Kate Northrop

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Missing that warm summer breeze in the dead of winter? Wishing you could dip your toes in that turquoise water? Yearning to kick back and soak up the sun with a good book? Come take a quick tour of Miami Beach with us while we go on the hunt for a local Lottery retailer to complete our latest scratch-off haul!

Of course, we have to try out the lottery whenever we visit other states, so that's just what we did during our latest trip to Florida.

Something that makes the Florida Lottery's instant games so attractive compared to other states is their wide array of scratch-off games offering larger-than-average prizes. We even tried out a ticket that historically offers the best chance to win $1 million in Florida with 155 top prizes of $1 million, but the question is, did we win?

WATCH: Florida Lottery scratch-off haul in Miami Beach

Fun fact — the retailer we bought our tickets at was also featured in an episode of a popular reality television show.

To find out where it was featured and how much we won, visit Lottery Post's official YouTube channel and catch up with us in our latest video on our Florida Lottery scratch-off haul.

Have a neat story to share about a time you won on a scratch-off ticket? Tell us in the comments on YouTube!

Well that was nice to see the FL scratchers with the losers thrown in.

If anyone follows the FL scratch forum on LP some huge winners were posted by a couple of players on that forum.

I've yet to make it to FL but I would definitely check out the scratchers on the FL website to pre shop.

    Kate, the mistakes you made is what made the video interesting. It was hilarious. Love the scratch-off videos. Keep them coming. I have scratched hundreds of tickets over the years and i have probably thrown away quite a few with "bonus" areas that I never saw.

     

    Green laughWhat?LOL

      Making mistakes is human. I review my scratch tickets multiple times just to be sure.

      They have some fun scratchers in Florida.

        Great video. I don't usually buy scratchers but I am tempted now. I will be in South FL next week. Are the gold and silver scratchers available for sale yet?

          I think Fl scratch offs are terrible. in FL chances of winning even $100.00 are slim very slim never mind bigger amounts. Came from MA and at least there got $50.00/$100.00 Often even hit $10,000.00 once. wish she have stated amount spent showing How much she lost. Then read article in FL of store workers was using sharp knife to scratch small amount off ticket code at bottom, showing if it were a winner, he claimed 7-$1,000.00 ticket got sloppy cashing $500.00 ticket. I purchase tickets in 2 gas stations and and have seen tickets in trash numbers never scratched yet code on bottom was Yet Don't hear this on the News and lottery doesn't say anything took yr to catch that guy, if you don't know this is happening which Most don't, would explain why not getting that many winners. Florida also continues game even when top prizes are Gone/ people if don't look it up don't know this. Ma would discontinue ticket after all top prizes, were paid on. Funny casino's have to stay within certain % of winners on slot machines, Yet Lottery NOT held to this standard. Yeah I know if i don't like it then why play. Guessing in back of mind chance to hit big pot LOL  Dumb answer but its the truth LOL

            Thank you all for the kind comments! Lovies Trying out scratch-off games in other states is always a great experience, but this definitely won't be the last time I play in Florida. Their huge prizes are certainly tempting.

             

            As for the scratchers, they're actually in production as we speak!

                Very curious to know if prior to actually shooting the video, did you guys discuss what you'd do if you scratched a ticket that won a large prize like a million dollars?  My guess is that you did, and something tells me had you actually won big money we wouldn't be seeing the video just yet!

                Please do come visit us in Florida again, but maybe next time you can visit Florida's sunny West Coast.  There's a lot to see and do here too! G5
