Florida Lottery to resume operations

in Statewide/Top Headlines by

The Florida Lottery announced Monday that daily drawings will resume and make-up drawings for all Lottery Draw games suspended because of Hurricane Irma will be conducted in sequence Tuesday “with full security and auditing measures in place.” 

Here’s the rest of the release:

Players holding tickets for any Lottery Draw games originally scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 10, and Monday Sept. 11, will be able to view the video-taped make-up drawings on the Florida Lottery’s YouTube site once they are posted.

Draw results will also be posted on the Lottery’s Winning Numbers webpage, as well as on its Facebook and Twitter platforms. 

Florida Lottery drawings were suspended Sunday and Monday as a result of Hurricane Irma and the related Executive Orders by Gov. Scott and the Florida Lottery which provided authority for the temporary suspension of business operations.

“We thank Gov. Scott for his decisive leadership, as well as the selfless devotion and courage of all those who placed themselves at risk to protect Florida’s families over the past several days,” Lottery Secretary Jim Poppell said.
