NLCB Results

The Pick 2 playslip has three (3) panels, titled PANEL A, PANEL B and PANEL C, Each panel contains two groups of numbers “FIRST” and “SECOND” both with numbers 1 through 36.

Select two numbers, one only in the “FIRST” group and one only in the “SECOND” group, by marking the numbers with a dark blue or black pen or pencil. Do Not Use Red Ink: your numbers will not register.

If you would like the terminal to select 2 random numbers, mark the “QUICK PICK” box.

Select the amount you want to wager under “PRICE”. Your wager will apply to all draws in the case where “ALL” is selected.

To play your numbers for multiple days, marl the appropriate box on the left side of the play slip under “DAYS”. This will play your panels for as many days as you want, up to 6 days (Monday through Saturday). Days selected may or may not be consecutive. Also you may play either the Morning, Midday, Afternoon or Evening draw only, or a combination of two or three draws. You can play all four draws by selecting “ALL”. If a boc is not marked, the terminal will automatically play your numbers for the next available draw.

To reverse the order of the two chosen numbers, mark the “REVERSE” box.

You will receive a ticket from the On-Line terminal that lists your chosen draw(s) and numbers. Remember, always check your ticket before you leave the store.

Pick 2

Pick 2 is a draw game from the Florida Lottery game with a top prize of $50 and drawings twice a day. There are a variety of play styles so you can find your favorite: Straight, Box, Straight/Box, 1-OFF, Front Number or Back Number.

Pick 2 has two chances to win every day, seven days a week. The midday draw is held at 1:30 PM ET, and the evening draw takes place at 9:45 PM ET. You can purchase tickets for the next draw up to 13 minutes prior – so get your tickets by 1:17 PM ET for the next midday draw, and 9:32 PM ET for the evening draw.

How to Play

Get started by picking your favorite number from 0 through 9 for each column of your playslip, so you have a total of two digits. You can also mark the “QP” box and Quick Pick will randomly generate some or all of your numbers.

To play Front Number, choose your number from the first column only. For Back Number, select the number from the last column only.

There are a number of play types – choose from Straight, Box, Straight/Box, 1-OFF, Front Number or Back Number.

You can play for 50 cents or $1 (all Straight/Box and 1-OFF plays are $1).

Choose the draw time: MID for the midday draw at 1:30 PM ET, EVE for the evening draw at 9:45 PM ET, or BOTH for both draws. If no draw time is selected, you’ll receive a ticket for the next available draw. If you select BOTH, the terminal will print two separate tickets, one for midday and one for evening.

With Advance Play, you can play your lucky numbers and favorite play types and draw times for up to 14 consecutive days – just add the number in the “Days” area of the playslip.
