A BIG state introduces four new lottery games where players can win over $345 million in prizes.
They hail from the state of Florida and are all scratch games.
The cost of the lottery tickets can range from $1 to $20 depending on the game.
Here are the following new special offers in Florida, along with the cost per ticket and prices.
- $5,000,000 CROSSWORD MONEY ($20 per ticket) – Over $239.6 million in total prizes.
- THE GAME OF LIFE ($5 per ticket) – Over $77.9 million in total prizes.
- $50 FRENZY ($1 per ticket) – More than $8.5 million total price.
- $2 CASH DROP ($2 per ticket) – Over $19.1 million in total prizes.
WHAT ARE THE CHANCES?
Of course, the probability of winning each game varies from game to game.
The highest odds game is 5,000,000 Crosswords as the players have a one in 2.90 chance of winning a prize.
The odds of winning “THE GAME OF LIFE” are one in 4.05.
For $50 FRENZY and $2 CASH DROP the odds are one in 4.93 and one in 4.45 respectively.
More than 16.5 million winning tickets are available for all new games.
The Florida Lottery said Tuesday that the new tickets would be available for purchase in the next 48 hours.
STRATEGIES TO PLAY
While no strategy will guarantee you a win, some of them can help you improve your odds.
For example, you can check your state lottery’s website to see how many prizes are left and which ones are still available.
For example, the FAST $200S game in Florida, which costs $2 per game, has 15 grand prizes left at the time of writing.
You may also want to take a look at your state lottery’s website as they may have a chart of recent winners.
If you can see where people won, consider buying a ticket from a hotspot.
For the Cash 3 game, TikToker @vaultstacker7 recently explained the “9-6-2” strategy, which she describes as “the secret sauce to winning the lottery every day”.
This involves analyzing the winnings from the lunchtime and evening draws and then finding a “hot number” to play during the night.
The US Sun gives a full coverage of the strategy and what you need to do.
And if you need help choosing numbers, some choose numbers that mean something to them.
For example, North Carolina resident Audrey Woodard made $25,000 a year for life after using digits for the family birthday.
