    4502. The player will only be required to register one time; and

    4623. The player’s entry history will be cumulative among the entry platforms.

    474(3) How to Earn Entries. To collect play symbols and earn entries into the drawing, players using a smartphone or tablet may either scan the barcode on the bottom of a ticket or may manually enter the 19-digit ticket number (located near the bottom of the ticket) on the ticket entry page. Players using the website may manually enter the 19-digit ticket number on the ticket entry page at 543flalottery.com/triplecash. Four game cards will appear on the screen. Each game card contains four spots to collect the four symbols. A qualifying game ticket number entered will randomly generate a quantity (2, 4, 6, 8, or 10) of symbols and place them automatically in an available game card. When all four symbols have been collected on a game card, the player will earn one entry into the drawing. The number of tickets needed to generate one entry can range from one ticket entered up to a maximum of seven tickets entered. When a filled game card generates an entry into the drawing, the symbols will be cleared on that game card, and a player can begin collecting more symbols. A player may earn multiple entries during the entry period; however, a player may only manually enter or scan up to two hundred tickets per day. Each ticket number can only be scanned or entered one time to earn entries. The purchase price of a ticket does not affect the number of symbols generated or the number of entries produced. Entries that include training tickets that were produced by a retailer terminal while in training mode or tickets with invalid ticket numbers will be disqualified from the drawing. The odds of winning depend on the number of entries in the drawing. All entries are subject to validation by the Florida Lottery and may be disqualified if eligibility requirements are not met. 783Lottery 784tickets should not be mailed to the Lottery for entry into the Promotion drawing. 798Lottery 799tickets received in the mail by the Florida Lottery will not be entered into the drawing and will not be returned.

When an nth ticket is generated, a coupon will be added to the “My Coupons” section of the “Coupons” page of the player’s account.

Coupons may be redeemed by players at a Florida Lottery retailer or a Florida Lottery District Office by presenting the coupon barcode on their mobile device for scanning, or players may redeem the coupon by printing the coupon from the website and presenting a hardcopy.
