Mega Millions lotto game arrives in Florida

Posted: Updated:

Starting Wednesday you can buy tickets to the popular Mega Millions game in Florida.

Florida becomes the last state in the nation with a lottery to join Mega Millions, which last year had a record lottery payout.

The current jackpot is $170 million dollars. There are two drawings a week. Tickets are sold in 42 states. The odds of matching all six Mega Millions numbers are 1 in 175 million.

But the move comes amid lingering questions on how the sales will impact other lottery ticket games.
