Florida Lotto has had only TWO matrixes, 6/49 and 6/53. Florida won't be going multi-state until next year. I will be leaving for Florida five months from today (10/17).

    CASH Only, when did Florida start the 6/49 matrix? 6/53 matrix? My vote is at the end of this year, Florida will change its matrix to 6/56 or start a bonus game like 5/48+1/40 to win a jackpot.

      I believe Florida Lotto began in 1988, but I'm not 100% sure. I don't remember when it went to the current matrix. BTW the last time I was in Florida in 1983, you couldn't buy tickets along I-95 south of Maryland.

        No. Florida is not big into changing things, especially when it's as popular as Lotto. They got quite a bit of complaints when they swtiched to the current matrix, and I don't think want to risk losing sales.

          Did Florida make an announcement on going multi-state? Why did they back out of Powerball a few years ago?

              I hope FL doesn't change the Matrix or add a "BOGUS" Ball.  I'm happy with Lotto.  If you want to play something with a bonus ball it's called Mega Money.  Didn't we learn that Instate lotto games and Bonus balls don't match when texas flopped?

                  Fortunately Florida will have a new governor next year. Whoever takes over better be in favor of a multi-state game.

                    For some reason I can't see FL going multistate.  Their "Lotto" game is their pride and joy.  If they take on a multistate game it might hurt sales.  I think that will be a factor. 

                    If they do go multistate and go with powerball...  That would mean another possible matrix change.  NC and FL would add so much to the game.

                        If a Democrat is elected, it's almost certain. But that's not to say a Republican governor won't bring it in either, it just isn't as likely. Let me tell you, if Bill McBride was elected in 2002, Florida would have had Powerball for a while now.

                          Florida needs to get into PB before it becomes submerged and/or too hot to live due to global warming.

                              With hurricane season coming, there probably will be a drawing in the next few months that starts at only $2 million, or with a $2 million rollover. Another reason Florida needs to go multi-state.
