The Louisiana Lottery’s flagship draw game offers a jackpot that starts at $250,000 and rolls over whenever nobody wins.
You play by picking 6 numbers from 1-40. Matching all 6 winning numbers snags you the jackpot, while matching 5 or 4 will give you a pari-mutuel prize (meaning the prize money depends on ticket sales and is split equally among each prize tier’s winners).
