About Florida Lucky Money
The Florida Lottery’s Lucky Money game starts with a $500,000 that can add up to as high as $2 million. Once the game hits the $2M cap without any winners, the jackpot rolls back down and the payouts for lower prize tiers increase.
To play Lucky Money, you must pick 4 numbers from 1-47 and a Lucky Ball number from 1-17. You must match all 5 numbers (your 4 numbers and the Lucky Ball) to hit the jackpot.
You can also opt to play EZmatch with your Lucky Money ticket to boost your winnings.
How Lucky Money EZmatch Worked
You can also pay an extra $1 to add EZmatch to your Lucky Money ticket. When you do this, a random set of 5 EZmatch numbers and an instant prize amount are printed on your ticket. If any of your chosen numbers match the EZmatch numbers, you’ll win the printed prize amount. You can claim EZmatch winnings right after purchase — the retailer will just issue a continuation ticket that you can use for the official Lucky Money drawing.
