Florida Lotto Jackpot Rolls to $56 MillionWednesday August 21st 2013
The Florida Lotto jackpot has grown to $56 million after a total of 33 drawings with no Match 6 winners. Tonight’s jackpot is the highest seen in the game for 12 years so ticket sales are likely to soar in anticipation of this Wednesday drawing.
The winning numbers from Saturday’s drawing were 2 – 7 – 11 – 15 – 43 – 45 and the Lotto Xtra number was 2. 50 tickets were one number away from winning the jackpot as they matched five numbers to win $4,198.50 each. A further 2,951 ticket holders won $57 each by matching four numbers and over 56,000 tickets matched three numbers to each win $3.
The last time the Florida Lotto jackpot was won was on Saturday April 20th, 2013 when a single ticket matched the six numbers drawn to win $7 million. Since then players haven’t been able to match the jackpot winning combination which has allowed the top prize to rollover multiple times and increase in value.
Although this is not yet the largest jackpot seen on the Florida Lotto it currently holds the record for the most number of rollovers, surpassing the previous record of 27 rollovers set in December 2011.
For your chance to stop the jackpot rolling for the 34th time and win tonight’s jackpot, make sure you have your Florida Lotto ticket(s) ready. Tickets for this state lottery can either be purchased in one of the many official Florida Lotto retailers or online via the Buy Tickets page.
