There’s also a new add-on feature called Double Play that gives players a chance to win up to $250,000 in an additional drawing held immediately after the FLORIDA LOTTO drawing using the same numbers and multiplier from a player’s FLORIDA LOTTO ticket.
The overall odds for the new base game are better due to the additional prize level and the prize multiplier included on every ticket guarantees bigger prizes at the non-jackpot cash prize levels.READ MORE: 'Above Average' Hurricane Season Still Forecast In NOAA Update
