THE FLORIDA LOTTERY TO LAUNCH NEW DRAW GAME
TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery is proud to announce that on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, it will launch the new Draw game JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY with Combo™. The new game will replace the LUCKY MONEY™ game that is ending on January 29, 2019.
JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY is unique in that for $1 players get a triple chance to win the jackpot, as each ticket has three sets of numbers to match with the winning numbers drawn. Also, the game's jackpot rolls over and down to make bigger prizes. Jackpots start at $500,000 and can roll over to reach $2 million before rolling down to increase the lower-prize levels in each drawing until the jackpot is won. Players win by matching three or more numbers from the same set to the winning numbers drawn. Players can get an extra chance to win by combining all matches on the ticket by adding Combo for $1 more.
JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY tickets go on sale Wednesday, January 30, 2019. JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY drawings will be held Tuesday and Friday nights at 11:15 p.m., ET, with the first drawing being held on Friday, February 1, 2019. LUCKY MONEY ticket sales will end at 10:40 p.m. ET on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, with the final drawing being held that evening at 11:15 p.m. If there is not a jackpot winner in the final LUCKY MONEY drawing, the jackpot will roll and be carried over to the JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY jackpot for the first drawing.
