Drawings take place every Wednesday and Saturday evenings (apart from Christmas Day). To win the jackpot, players must match all six main numbers drawn. Here's a breakdown of how it works:

Sign the back of your ticket as soon as you purchase it, and store it in a safe place.

Prizes of $600 or less can be redeemed by mail, from a Lottery Office, or from any authorized lottery retailer. Prizes worth more than $600 can be claimed at a Lottery Office or by mail. If you're lucky enough to win a prize on Lotto, Powerball or Mega Millions worth more than $510,000, you'll need to visit the Lottery headquarters in Baton Rouge to claim your prize.

Louisiana Lottery prizes worth $5,000 or more will be subject to a federal withholding tax of 24 percent and state taxes of 4.25 percent.

Make a copy of all items for your records (or take a clear photo on your phone), including the front and back of the signed ticket. Send the originals to the lottery.

Louisiana Lottery Corporation
Attn: Prize Validations

Claims are processed in the order they are received.

The Louisiana Lottery was created in 1991 as a way to generate revenue for the state without raising taxes thanks to a constitutional amendment passed by voters in 1990. The first scratch-off games went on sale on September 6th, 1991 and Powerball tickets went on sale in the state in 1995. The state joined the Mega Millions game in November 2011.

As of July 2004, Louisiana Lottery proceeds raised through ticket sales are allocated to the Minimum Foundation Program, which helps raise money for K-12 education in the state. Out of every dollar in ticket sales, 35.5 cents is transferred to the State Treasury to help children across the state receive the education they need to succeed in every stage of their lives.

The minimum age to play the lottery in Louisiana is 21, unlike in many other states where it is 18, this applies to both residents and visitors.

If you receive a ticket with a misprint then you need to alert your retailer as soon as possible. Refunds cannot be given for scratch-offs that have already been scratched or tickets for drawings which have already taken place.

Louisiana lottery games are not drawn on Christmas Day or Easter Sunday, if multi-state games Powerball and Mega Millions fall on these dates then they will still be drawn as normal.
