The Florida Lotto is set to get bigger and better for players with changes being made to the popular America Lotto game from Thursday, October 8th.
The new game features a multiplier number on every ticket which goes towards new enormous jackpots and a new prize level for matching 2 out of 6 numbers.
Draw days remain on Wednesday's and Saturday's and players will still select six numbers from 1 through 53.
Speaking about the enhancements to the game Florida Lottery Director of Communications Keri Nucatola said: "While Florida Lotto is an established brand with a loyal player base, the game has had very few changes over its 30+ year history.
The game was in need of a refresh to give players new, exciting ways to win, more ways to win and of course, bigger prizes and better odds."
Beginning October 8, a multiplier number will be included on every ticket for no additional charge. The multiplier number will automatically increase non-jackpot cash prizes by up to 10 times."
Part of the package of changes includes the price of a Florida Lotto ticket which is increasing from the current $1 per ticket to $2 per ticket.
The dramatic increase has been met with mixed reactions but Florida Lottery bosses are confident the bigger jackpots and brand new way to play is the way forward for the game that has awarded over $10.3 billion in prizes since it began in 1988.
