Lotto reaches highest jackpot in almost 8 months
The jackpot for the Florida Lotto has rolled over to an estimated $40 million after Saturday night's drawing produced no winning tickets with all six numbers, the Florida Lottery said on Sunday.
The $40 million Lotto jackpot is the highest since a $40 million jackpot on Saturday, December 13, 2003. That jackpot was hit by one Quick Pick ticket sold in Pensacola.
The numbers drawn were: 06, 12, 14, 45, 50, and 52.
116 players matched five numbers, each winning $6,864.50, and 7,704 players matched four numbers and each won $84.
Lottery officials reported that 165,100 players matched three numbers, each winning $5.50.
The next drawing is on Wednesday.
The Fantasy 5 drawing resulted in a rolldown, producing 349 winners who correctly matched four of five numbers. Each winner will receive $835.50.
The winning Fantasy 5 numbers were: 04, 05, 15, 25, and 32.
In addition, 12,197 players matched three numbers, each winning $9, and 108,001 players matched two numbers, winning a free Quick Pick ticket, Lottery officials said.
