~ Wins $250,000 Jackpot from the JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY™ Draw Game ~
TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery announces that Richard Kisiel, of Summerfield, claimed the $250,000 jackpot from the JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY™ drawing held on January 12, 2021, using a secured drop box located at the Gainesville District Office.
Kisiel chose to receive his winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $209,392.65. He purchased his jackpot-winning JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY Quick Pick ticket from Quick King Food Store, located at 14725 Southeast U.S. Highway 441 in Summerfield. The retailer will receive a bonus commission of $1,000 for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.
The next JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY drawing will be held tomorrow, February 19, 2021, at 11:15 p.m. ET, with a $1 million jackpot. JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY drawings are broadcast on 17 carrier stations throughout the state. Drawings are also available for viewing on the Florida Lottery website and on the Lottery's YouTube channel. Winning numbers are available on the Lottery website, at retailers statewide and by phone at (850) 921-PLAY.
This month, players have a chance to win cash prizes from $1,000 to $50,000 when they enter any JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY ticket into the Florida Jackpots Bonus Play promotion by midnight on February 28, 2021. To learn more, please visit www.flalottery.com/floridajackpots.
For $1, JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY players get a triple chance to win the jackpot, as each ticket comes with three sets of numbers to match with the winning numbers drawn. Players can choose six numbers from 1 to 46 for the first set and the second set will be randomly Quick Picked. Jackpots start at $500,000 and can roll over to reach $2 million before rolling down to increase the lower-prize levels in each drawing until the jackpot is won. Players win by matching the three or more numbers from the same set to the winning numbers drawn. Players can get an extra chance to win by combining all matches on the ticket by adding Combo for $1 more.
Florida Lottery offices are currently open to the public by appointment only for players with prizes valued at $600 or more. Payers can request a claim appointment at Headquarters and district offices through the Lottery's website, at www.flalottery.com/howToClaim. Players can still utilize the secured drop box located at each district office or mail tickets to Florida Lottery Headquarters or a district office.
