“The Florida Lottery continuously evaluates our games and product offerings to ensure our players have the best games available,” said Florida Lottery Secretary Cynthia O’Connell. “MEGA MONEY was first introduced in 1998 and updates were made over the years, yet we believed the game could be improved. Therefore, we kept the unique features of MEGA MONEY and added new features such as an increased second prize, better overall odds and EZmatch™ to create a better game for our players.”
LUCKY MONEY jackpots start at $500,000 and can roll over to reach $2 million before rolling down to increase the lower-prize levels. Players win the jackpot by matching the four white ball numbers plus the Lucky Ball™, or by matching any of the non-jackpot winning combinations to win other cash prizes or a free ticket. LUCKY MONEY tickets cost $1 per play, and for $1 more players can add EZmatch for the chance to win up to $500 instantly.
LUCKY MONEY tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 2, 2014. LUCKY MONEY drawings will be held Tuesday and Friday nights at 11:15 p.m., ET, with the first drawing being held on Friday, July 4, 2014.
