Louisiana Lotto is a lotto jackpot game using traditional draw-style run by Louisiana State Lottery. It sold the first lottery tickets on 22 January 1992 and the draw took place on 31 January 1992. Since then, it has been the most frequently played game in the state.
The jackpot offered in the game starts at $250,000 and when it’s not won, it will roll over until someone succeeds to win it. Previously, the game only took the draws once a week but on 4 December 1996, another draw was added. Since then, the draws have been held twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9.30 pm local time. The jackpot was also cut half from $500,000 to $250,000 at the same time. This starting value of jackpot remains to this day.
The matrix used in the game is the one of 6/40. It means that a player in the game will have to select 5 different numbers from a total of 40 numbers. When those 6 numbers are matched, the player will then be rewarded the Louisiana Lotto Jackpot. To win the jackpot, a player must beat the odds of 1 in 3.83 million. However, if a player cannot win the main jackpot, at least there are still 3 other prize divisions to win. The odds of winning any prizes in the game are 1 in just 30.
The largest jackpot of $21.2 million was won by The Robert H. LeBas Family Partnership on 26 September 1992. The winnings of any prizes in the game are only given in the form of cash. This is quite different from most other lottery games because they usually offer two different options of winning, cash or annuity forms. The claim should be within 180 days of the drawing time. The prize up to $600 can be claimed from the lottery retailers but more than that, it should be claimed at any of the Louisiana State Lottery offices. However, if the ticket purchasing is done via online, the lottery ticket company will take care of everything.
To join the game, a player must be at least 21 years old. Previously, only people at the age of 18 could start to participate but in 1998, the rule was changed. However, at the age of 14, someone can start sell the tickets of the lottery games.;
