Florida Lottery needs to get a new station to show drawings in Orlando

Posted: 26 Jan 2012 09:12 AM PST

Did you tune in to WKMG-Ch. 6 at10:59 p.m. last night for the Powerball drawing?

I did. And when they went straight to news without showing the drawing, I assumed there was some delay in holding the drawing.

Not so, said Florida Lottery spokeswoman Connie Barnes.

“The Powerball drawing was conducted on time last night,” she told me this morning.

WKMG already delays the Lotto and Fantasy 5 drawings by several minutes on Wednesday and Saturday nights. Why can’t they adjust their schedule to show them live?

On the other nights, they read the results and often talk so fast it’s impossible to write the numbers down.

It’s time for the Florida Lottery to find another TV station to show the drawings.

Unbelievable: Two Quick Pick jackpot winners at the same store

From time to time, there will be more than one jackpot-winning ticket purchased at the same store.

It happens when people play a set of numbers more than once.

According to the Florida Lottery, four tickets split Wednesday night’s Fantasy 5 jackpot and all were Quick Picks. The Lottery says two of them were purchased at the University BP, 10860 Miromar Outlet Drive, Estero.

What are the odds of the Lottery’s computer spitting out two winning Quick Picks at the same store?

The other winning tickets were bought in Miami and Jay.

I checked with Lottery spokeswoman Connie Barnes to see if there was a mistake, but she told me both tickets bought at the BP in Estero were Quick Picks.

Estero, by the way, is in Lee County in southwest Florida.
