Triple Play

Jackpot Triple Play is a new Florida Lottery game giving you at least three ways to win for each ticket bought.

Each play costs $1 and gives you three lines of numbers. For the first line, you select six numbers from 1 to 46 (you can also opt to have Quick Pick choose these numbers randomly). Quick Pick then automatically generates another two lines, each with six numbers.

If you’d like to play the same numbers more than once, mark the number of future consecutive draws you want to play – up to 30 – in the Advance Play section of your playslip.

Drawings take place every Tuesday and Friday night at 11:15 PM Eastern Time. To buy tickets for that evening’s draw, purchase by 10:40 PM on the night of the draw. Otherwise, you will be entered in the next draw.

During the draw, a line of six numbers is randomly selected from a mechanical lottery machine, and players win by matching the numbers on their ticket.

The jackpot starts at $500,000 and rolls over each time it is not won, up to a maximum $2,000,000. Once that cap is reached, the additional prize money (which would have been added to the jackpot before it reached $2 million) is rolled down – that is, it’s added to all the lower-tier prizes in each draw until the jackpot is won.

How to Win Jackpot Triple Play

You have three chances at winning for each ticket that you have bought (hence the “triple” name) with three single lines of numbers. You win by matching three or more numbers on any one line of your ticket. If you match all six numbers on any single line, you win the jackpot!

All Triple Play prizes are pari-mutuel. The jackpot may be taken as a cash lump sum or annuity.

Combo – Win Up to $10,000 More

Select the Combo option for an extra dollar for a chance to win up to $10,000 more in Combo prizes. Combo lets you win by combining winning numbers from all three lines together.

Although there are only six winning numbers, players can get up to 10 matches in Combo, because the same number may be printed on more than one of their three lines, and each one counts as a separate match.

All Combo prizes are set amounts.

Prizes and Odds of Winning

The table belows shows the prizes and odds of winning for Jackpot Triple Play prizes (single line play) and Combo prizes (combined line play).

Winning a Prize: Example

Here’s an example of how you can win both a regular Jackpot Triple Play prize and a Combo prize.

Sample winning numbers: 07, 34, 12, 09, 42, 27

Sample Jackpot Triple Play numbers:

Line 1: 02, 27, 34, 11, 05, 40

Line 2: 06, 39, 42, 21, 36, 12

Line 3: 34, 14, 25, 42, 09, 07

Example prize: In this example, you won a Jackpot Triple Play prize by matching four numbers on one line. In this example you also added Combo, so you are the lucky winner of an extra $50 Combo prize because you matched eight numbers across all lines.

How to Play

Get three sets of numbers to play for $1 Add Combo for $1 to combine matches and win more! JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY jackpots start at $250,000 and can roll over to up to $2 million if there isn’t a jackpot winner. Once the jackpot reaches $2 million, and there is no jackpot winner, the excess money in the jackpot prize pool rolls down and increases the payouts on all of the lower-tier prize levels each drawing until the jackpot is won.

To play, ask the clerk for a ticket or pick up a JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY playslip at an authorized Florida Lottery retailer. Each playslip contains five panels (A-E). In each panel:

  1. Select or Quick Pick the first six numbers from 1 through 46 and the second and third set of numbers will automatically be Quick Pick. Each set of numbers prints on its own line and is played separately.
  2. For an extra chance to win up to $10,000 by combining winning number matches from all three sets of numbers, select the Combo box. Combo costs $1 more per play. JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY with Combo tickets cannot be cancelled.
  3. To play the same numbers for more than one draw, select the number of draws you want to play in the Advance Play section of your playslip or tell the retailer how many advance draws you wish to play.
  4. Give your completed playslip and payment to the retailer. You will receive a ticket printed with your numbers and draw date(s) played. If you played multiple plays, each play will print on a separate ticket. Please check your ticket(s) before you leave the store. You are responsible for the accuracy of your ticket(s).
  5. Check the official drawing results to see if you’re a winner! Draw results are available on this website, at authorized Florida Lottery retailers and by calling (850) 921-PLAY (7529). You may also watch the drawings online.

Drawings are held Tuesday and Friday nights at 11:15 p.m. Eastern Time. Tickets may be purchased until 10:40 p.m. Eastern Time on the night of the draw. Tickets purchased after 10:40 p.m. will be for the next draw.

If you claim a prize on a winning Advance Play ticket before all of the draws on the ticket have occurred, you will be issued a continuation ticket for the remaining draws with the same play numbers as the original ticket.

Please remember: All prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the applicable draw date.

The Florida Lottery will hold official JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY drawings where six numbers from 1 to 46 will be drawn at random. You have three chances per ticket to win JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY prizes by matching the winning numbers drawn in the official drawing for the date played. Win by matching three or more numbers on any one line to the winning numbers drawn. Match all six numbers on any one line to the winning numbers drawn to win the jackpot.

If no JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY ticket matches all six winning numbers, the top prize pool rolls over to the next draw until it reaches $2 million. After the JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY jackpot reaches $2 million and there is no jackpot winner, the amount in the jackpot prize pool in excess of the funds required for a $2 million annuity will roll down to increase the prize payouts on all of the lower-tier cash prizes. JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY winners may choose to receive their portion of the JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY jackpot in a one-time Cash Option payment or in 25 annual payments. The Cash Option payment is the amount required on the day of the drawing (or if the drawing is held on a holiday, the business day prior to the drawing) to fund the applicable jackpot prize over 25 years, less applicable taxes. JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY jackpot winners who want to receive a single Cash Option payment must claim their prizes within the first 60 days of the 180-day redemption period. Applicable federal income taxes will be withheld from both Cash Option and annual payments at the time payments are made. Read more about claiming Lottery prizes.

JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY with Combo

When you select Combo, players can combine matches from all three sets of numbers for an additional chance to win based on how many numbers match the winning numbers drawn. You can win up to four times on a single JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY with Combo ticket.

Please remember: All prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the applicable draw date.
