TALLAHASSEE – Time is running out for players to participate in the Florida Lottery’s FANTASY 5® with EZmatch™promotion. Players have less than two weeks left to enjoy higher prize payouts, including a top prize of $1,000 – double the regular top prize of $500! Since the promotion began on Friday, August 30, more than 158,000 EZmatch players have won more than $1 million in instant cash prizes.
The Florida Lottery’s FANTASY 5 with EZmatch promotion will end at midnight on Sunday, September 29, 2013. During this promotion, in addition to the EZmatch top prize of $1,000, the second prize has increased from $250 to $500, and there are more $500 instant-win prizes to be won. Plus, the EZmatch minimum prize is $5 throughout the entire promotion.
EZmatch is an optional play feature of FANTASY 5 that allows players the chance to win cash instantly for an additional $1 per play. When players choose EZmatch on the FANTASY 5 playslip, a list of five EZmatch numbers and prize amounts for each will print below the FANTASY 5 numbers on the ticket. If any of the EZmatch numbers match any of the FANTASY 5 numbers on the ticket, players will instantly win the corresponding cash amount.
All EZmatch prizes under $600 may be redeemed at any Florida Lottery retailer; prizes of $600 or more must be claimed at a Florida Lottery district office. If an EZmatch prize is paid by a retailer before the applicable FANTASY 5 drawing on the ticket has occurred, a continuation ticket will be provided to the player for the FANTASY 5 drawing. EZmatch prizes may be claimed up to 180 days after the first draw date on the FANTASY 5 with EZmatch ticket. FANTASY 5 drawings are held seven days a week, at 11:15 p.m., ET. Web casts of Florida Lottery drawings are available on the Lottery’s Web site at www.flalottery.com.
