Rollover in Florida Pushes Jackpot up to $25 Million

Nobody managed to match all six winning numbers in last Saturday night's Florida Lotto drawing so it was a rollover, the jackpot grew a little bigger, and players now have a $25 million jackpot to aim for on Wednesday night.

The second tier proved to be lucrative for 27 ticket-holders who successfully matched five numbers and won $5,456.50 each. The third tier produced 1,941 winners who will each receive  $65.50 (for matching four numbers), and down in the fourth tier 39,440 tickets matched three numbers to win $5 each.

Since their first drawing in 1988 the Florida Lotto has created over 1,200 millionaires and paid out over $37 billion in prizes. Drawings are held on Wednesday and Saturday at 23:15 (ET).
