Florida lottery fantasy 5 rules

Daydream about what you would do with a fantasy prize of around $100,000. And, if there is no top-prize winner, that amount rolls down to the 4-of-5 prize level. FANTASY 5 has lots of winners. You can win a free ticket for matching just two numbers.

1. Pick five numbers from 1 through 36 on your FANTASY 5 play slip.
2. Or mark the Quick Pick box and let the terminal randomly pick some or all of your numbers.
3. You can play up to five panels on each play slip. Each play costs $1.
4. You can play the same numbers for more than one drawing. To play up to 30 consecutive drawings, mark the Advance Play area on your play slip, or tell the retailer how many advance draws you wish to play.

Drawings are held seven days per week at approximately 11:15 p.m. Eastern Time and carried on 13 Lottery Affiliate TV Stations. You can purchase tickets until 10:40 p.m. Eastern Time for that night’s draw. You can claim your prizes beginning at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time the following morning.

If you claim a prize on a winning Advance Play ticket before all of the draws on the ticket have occurred, you will be issued a continuation ticket for the remaining draws with the same play numbers as the original ticket.

All prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the applicable draw date.

How to Win in FANTASY 5

Players win FANTASY 5 prizes by matching in any order two, three, four, or five of the winning numbers drawn in the official drawing for the date played. FANTASY 5 is a pari-mutuel game. Actual prize amounts depend on sales and the number of winners in each prize category. All FANTASY 5 prizes are paid in a single cash payment. If there is no top-prize winner, the money in the top-prize pool rolls down, and is shared equally among winners in the 4-of-5 number prize category. When 2-of-5 number winning tickets are redeemed, the On-line gaming terminal automatically will print free Quick Pick ticket prizes for the next available draw.

Appropriate federal income taxes will be withheld from FANTASY 5 prizes $5,000 and greater at the time payments are made.

Fantasy 5

Fantasy 5 is the FL draw game with a top prize of around $200,000 that rolls down if no one wins it! It’s not just a dream – if two or more of your numbers match the numbers drawn, you win!

There are drawings seven nights a week at around 11:15 PM ET that could make your fantasy a reality. You can buy tickets up until 10:40 PM for that night’s draw. If you miss the cut-off time, don’t worry – you’ll simply be entered into the next evening’s draw.

The jackpot is usually in the neighborhood of $200,000 if won by a single ticket, but the actual amount depends on ticket sales for each drawing and the number of winners in each prize level (this is known as pari-mutuel).

What is a jackpot rolldown? If no one wins the top prize, the money in its pool “rolls down” and gets shared equally between winners in the 4-of-5 prize tier, up to a maximum amount of $555 per winner. If there’s still money left over, the extra cash rolls down another level and winners in the 3-of-5 prize category share it equally.

If you win in the 2-of-5 level, matching two out of five winning numbers, you won’t go home empty-handed either – the Lottery terminal will automatically print a free Quick Pick ticket for the next drawing.

How to Play Fantasy 5

Playing is easy. Your playslip has 10 panels, labeled A-J. Each panel equals one play. For each panel you want to play, choose five numbers from 1-36, or use Quick Pick to have the terminal generate your numbers at random. Each play costs $1.

For $1 more per play, you can add EZmatch for a chance to win a cash prize on the spot. You can also mark the EZmatch box on the top left of the playslip to add EZmatch to all the panels you wish to play. For each panel where you have selected EZmatch, you’ll get a separate ticket with both your Fantasy 5 and EZmatch numbers (see below for more on EZmatch).

Do you want to play your lucky numbers for more than one draw? Just mark the number of future draws you’d like in the Advance Play section of the playslip.

During the nightly drawing, five numbers out of 36 are drawn. If your five numbers match the winning numbers, you win the top prize! Match four, three or even two of the numbers drawn and you’ll win other cash prizes or a free ticket. All cash prizes are paid in a single payment.
