About the Louisiana Lottery

The Louisiana Lottery Corporation (LLC) also known as the Louisiana state lottery company was established in 1991 and is responsible for the state’s government-run lottery games. The proceeds from sales of tickets are donated to four key areas to support the state of Louisiana. In the year July 2020 to July 2021, the following amounts were granted:

  • $353.9 Million to Prize Winners  —  Over half of the lottery’s revenue is paid out to prize winners, with more than $5 billion won since 1991;
  • $207.5 Million to State Treasury  —  These funds are used to support public education in Louisiana via the Minimum Foundation Program. More than $4.15 billion has been contributed to the state treasury to date;
  • $35.4 Million to Lottery Retailers  —  Around 2,900 local businesses receive 5% commission from the sales of Louisiana lottery products;
  • $28.3 Million to Lottery Operational Expenses  —  Roughly 4.5% of the revenue is used to fund expenses, including offices, technology, and advertising.

Louisiana Lottery Rules

While individual Louisiana Lottery games come with different rules, some common restrictions apply across every draw. Have a look at the list below so you know what to expect:

  • Participants must be at least 21 years of age;
  • Age must be proven by providing a valid drivers’ license, passport, military/federal ID or ID card;
  • Tickets can be gifted to participants under the age of 21 if they are accompanied by a legal guardian or family member when collecting any Louisiana lottery prizes;
  • Those working for the Louisiana Lottery are prohibited from participating, along with any family members residing in the same household;
  • Tickets may only be purchased from licensed retail locations, and never across state or national borders.

Louisiana Lottery Tickets

Around 2,900 licensed Louisiana lottery retailers sell lottery tickets, including grocery stores and gas stations. Winning participants of scratch-off games and Fast Play games have up to 90 days to claim their prize. Winning draw-style tickets allow up to 180 days following the draw to claim.

LA Lottery Tickets Payment Methods

State lottery regulations allow various payment methods — including credit cards. However, retailers have final say over which payment methods they’ll accept. It’s best to ask your local retailer if they’ll accept methods other than cash.

Can I buy lottery tickets online?

No, Louisiana tickets are not available to buy online. State law states that only licensed retailers may sell tickets for these games. Indeed, these retailers receive a commission from the sales of tickets.

Louisiana Lottery Games and Drawing Schedule

Mega Millions

Mega Millions is a national lottery game with multimillion-dollar jackpots up for grabs every Tuesday and Friday at 10pm CST. Mega Millions players choose five numbers between 1 and 70, plus one Mega Ball number between 1 and 25. By matching five white ball numbers plus one Mega Ball, you can win the ultimate jackpot. The Megaplier feature also gives this game an exciting bonus element. To further increase chances for lottery winnings, participants can add Megapliers to their ticket for an extra $1 to boost their non-jackpot Louisiana lottery winnings by up to 5x.


Powerball is another lottery game where you can join millions of fellow Americans in the pursuit of a huge jackpot. Players choose five numbers from 1 to 69 and one Powerball number from 1 to 26. To win the jackpot prize, you’ll need to match five white balls and the red Powerball. Similar to the Megaplier, Powerball players can add Power Play to their tickets for $1 to increase non-jackpot prizes up to 10x.


Lotto is Louisiana’s flagship game, available to play from $1 per draw. To play, choose six numbers between 1 and 42. The massive cash jackpot starts at $500,000 and pays out to players who match six numbers. There are smaller prizes for matching three, four, or five numbers. The jackpot, match-5 and match-4 prizes are divided among the winners of each prize, but the match-3 prize offers a guaranteed amount per player.

Easy 5

The Easy 5 lottery game features the best odds of the bunch, with a cash jackpot starting at a cool $50,000. Participants choose five numbers from 1 to 37. If all five numbers match, you win the big cash jackpot. There are also prizes for matching four, three, and even two numbers, with prizes starting from $1 with a 1 in 9 chance of winning the lowest prize.

Pick 5

Pick 5 is a great game for anyone who enjoys some flexibility. Here you can choose between two and five numbers and then decide which prize you want to play for. If you choose five numbers and opt for a Straight, your numbers must match those drawn in the exact order. If you choose five numbers and opt for the Box prize, your numbers can match in any order. Players choosing fewer numbers will need to match the first or last numbers drawn. You also have the option to wager $1 or $0.50.

Pick 4

Pick 4 works in a similar way to Pick 5 but with every player choosing four numbers. Again, you can decide which prize to opt in for, with a Straight offering the top prize of $5,000. The Straight/Box option combines the two so you can win by matching your four numbers in either the exact or any order. If you are happy to pay extra, the Combo is another great option as this covers every order of your numbers to ensure a Straight prize if your numbers come up.

Pick 3

This game works the same way with Straight, Box, Straight/Box and Combo prizes available. In Pick 3, the jackpot prize is $500 for matching your three numbers in the exact order.

The Louisiana Lottery runs limited-time second-chance promotions, though these aren’t as frequent as other state lotteries’ games. To enter second-chance games, you typically enter tickets through mail or online. Full details are released with every second-chance game announcement, so it’s best to keep an eye out for these.

How to Claim a Lottery Prize in Louisiana

If you’re lucky enough to win one of the Louisiana lottery prizes, you’ll have 180 days following the draw to claim your prize with your winning tickets, or 90 days for scratch-offs and Fast Play games. Prizes of $600 or less can be claimed by bringing your original winning ticket to any lottery retailer. For prizes of more than $600, you can go to a Lottery office or follow these steps by mail:

  1. Fill in and sign the information on the back of your winning ticket;
  2. Photocopy the front and back of the ticket;
  3. Complete the Louisiana Lottery Prize Claim Form available on the LA Lottery website;

  5. Mail these together to: Louisiana Lottery Corporation, Attn: Prize Validations, P.O. Box 90010, Baton Rouge, LA 70879-0010.

The mail option is not available for Powerball and Mega Millions prizes due to multistate rules. Furthermore, if your prize is over $5,000, you’ll need to present your original winning ticket to the Lottery office, or to Louisiana lottery corporation headquarters if the prize exceeds $501,000.
