Where to Play
Florida Lottery games are designed to be a fun, low-cost form of entertainment with the added benefit of helping fund education. While most of our players enjoy the fun and entertainment of playing our games, for some, gambling of any kind can be a problem.
Based on a 2016 Survey of Problem Gambling Services, conducted by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG), an estimated 1.1% of Florida adults are believed to have gambling-related problems. And while this is among the lowest per capita of all states in the nation, people with this problem cannot safely manage any kind of wagering.
To assist individuals and families struggling with addiction, the Florida Lottery encourages them to contact the Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling (FCCG), which offers a variety of free services to callers based on the needs of the individual. Callers are given the opportunity to share about the problems they are experiencing so they may be connected with the appropriate resources. Their multilingual Helpline number is: 888-ADMIT IT (888-236-4848)

Convenience at Your Fingertips
Do you hate standing in long lines or having to interact with people when you’re just not in the mood? We’ve got a solution for that! Try purchasing your favorite Lottery games using our vending machine. So whether you’re purchasing Scratch games, or buying Jackpot games using the Quick Pick option or choosing your own lucky numbers, it’s quick and easy.
How to Play
The most important thing for you to remember when using the vending machine is that it does not give change, so be sure to insert the correct amount of money for your purchase into the cash receptacle. It will accept up to $100. Once your cash is accepted, you can buy Jackpot games with the Quick Pick option by choosing your favorite game and pressing one of the purchase options on the top of the machine. Or, if you prefer to use a playslip, simply complete it, and insert it into the recepticle beneath the cash receptor and keyboard entry. If Scratch is your game, simply press the button for the game that you want to play, and it will be issued. TaDaaaa! So easy.
It can also check your previously bought tickets and tell you if they’re winners or not. If they’re winners, you can opt to apply the winnings as credit on the machine (up to $100) to make another purchase. If you decide to apply your winnings as a credit, it will be for the full amount of the winnings. Remember, whatever you put on the machine, you have to spend. The machine will tell you the amount of the win so you can decide whether to apply it all to credits, or whether to take it to the retailer to cash it in.Tells players how the Lottery vending machine works. ]]>
