  • 1(1) How to Play PICK 578.

    9(a) PICK 5 is a Draw lottery game (also known as an online lottery game) in which a player selects any five-digit number from 00000 through 99999 inclusive. The digits may be the same, different or combination thereof; for example, 11111, 12123, and 12345 are all valid selections.

    57(b) Players may choose play amounts of $.50 or $1.00 per play, per drawing.

    71(c) Players may make their PICK 5 ticket selections by marking a play slip or by telling the retailer their desired selections.

    931. There are five panels on a play slip. Players electing to use a play slip to make their PICK 5 ticket selections must mark one number in each column or mark the Quick Pick (QP) box located at the bottom of each panel for the terminal to randomly select one or more of the numbers for each panel played. The player may also mark the play type, draw time and play amount; however, if the play type, play amount, or draw time is not marked by the player, the terminal will default to a $1.00 straight play for the next available draw. A “Void” box is also located at the bottom of each panel and should be marked by the player if an error was made in his or her selections in a panel. Players may mark the $5 “Quick Picks” box to receive five $1.00 tickets each with one set of five randomly selected numbers (straight play) for the next PICK 5 drawing, or may mark the $10 “Quick Picks” box to receive ten $1.00 tickets, each with one set of five randomly selected numbers (straight play) for the next available PICK 5 drawing. Players may mark Quick Picks in addition to panel plays. Players must use only blue or black ink or pencil for making selections. The use of mechanical, electronic, computer generated or any other non-manual method of marking play slips is prohibited. Play slips may be processed through a Florida Lottery full service vending machine or processed by a Florida Lottery retailer to obtain a ticket.

    3542. Retailers also are authorized to manually enter numbers selected by a player. Players electing to make their PICK 5 ticket selections by telling the retailer must specify the play type, draw time, play amount, and their desired number selections (or tell the retailer they desire to use the quick pick feature for the terminal to randomly select one or more of 416the numbers).

    418(d) A player who selects the box play type or the straight/box play type and who elects to use the quick pick feature will not be able to select the type of box play. The type of box play will be determined by whether the quick pick numbers selected by the terminal comprise a 5-way box, 10-way box, 20-way box, or 30-way, 60-way or 120-way box combination as described in paragraph (1)(f), 490below.

    491(e) Players may play future consecutive midday, evening, or both drawings within a fourteen-day period or non-consecutive drawings within a seven-day period by using the “advance play” feature. To use the advance play feature, players may either mark the play slip or tell the retailer the advance play selections and draw times they desire. For purposes of this paragraph (1)(e), both a fourteen-day and a seven-day period begin on the date of the next available PICK 5 drawing for the draw time selected and continue through the next thirteen/six consecutive days for the draw time selected. The advance play options are described more fully in subparagraphs 1. and 2., below.

    6011. Advance Play by Play Slip. Advance play selections made on a play slip are for consecutive drawings for the draw time(s) selected only. Players shall mark the desired number of consecutive drawings in the “Days” section and the desired draw time(s) in the “Draw Time” section of the play slip. The number of consecutive drawings marked will include the next available drawing for the draw time(s) selected and will apply to each panel (A-E) played. Advance play does not apply to selections in the Quick Picks box.

    689a. If the midday (MID) box is selected, the ticket will be entered into the next available midday draw and consecutive midday draws through the selected number of days.

    718b. If the evening (EVE) box is selected, the ticket will be entered into the next available evening draw and consecutive evening draws through the selected number of days.

    747c. If the both (BOTH) box is selected, the ticket will be entered into the next available draw and consecutive midday and evening draws through the selected number of days.

    7772. Advance Play by Telling the Retailer. Players shall specify to the retailer their desired selections in one (1) of the following advance play parameters:

    802a. Any single day for the draw time(s) selected in a seven-day period;

    815b. Any two non-consecutive days for the draw time(s) selected in a seven-day period;

    829c. Any two or more consecutive days for the draw time(s) selected in a seven-day period, not including the next available drawing.

    851d. Up to fourteen consecutive days for the draw times selected, including the next available drawing.
