About the Louisiana Lottery

Louisiana Scenery

The Louisiana Lottery launched in 1991 with the idea to generate revenue for the state without the need to increase taxes.

Voters passed the constitutional amendment in 1990 and the very first Louisiana Lottery scratch-off games went on sale in September 1991. Powerball was added in 1995, and the state later joined Mega Millions in 2011.

By July 2004, the lottery proceeds that were raised through ticket sales were divided up in the Minimum Foundation Program, helping to raise money for K-12 education in Louisiana. Moreover, for every dollar in lottery ticket sales, at least 35 cents are transferred to the State Treasure as a way of helping children receive an education.

In Louisiana, players must be 21 years or older to play the lottery and claim prizes. Louisiana Lottery does not hold game draws on Easter Sunday and Christmas Day. Should Mega Millions or Powerball draws fall on these dates, they are drawn as per schedule.

FAQs

1. Can I buy Louisiana Lottery tickets by mail or over the phone?

No. You must purchase your lottery tickets from licensed retailers in the state.


2. Can I remain anonymous if I win a Louisiana Lottery prize?

If you win $600 or more and need to claim your prize at the Lottery office, you need to complete a claim form for the purpose of tax. Under the Louisiana Lottery statute, all prize payments are public.

Depending on how much you win along with media and public interest, you may have to make your identity known. The lottery will publish your name and city of residence.

We suggest that you consult with a lawyer before claiming any big prizes however, as it may be possible to claim your prize through a trust in order to retain your anonymity.


3. What do I do if I lose or damage my winning ticket?

Always sign the back of your ticket. Without a signature on the back, anyone who has the ticket can claim the prize.


4. Who can play the Louisiana Lottery?

Anybody in the state who is 21 years old or older.

Louisiana Lottery has an excellent selection of both multi-state and state-only lottery games. These include Pick 3, Pick 4, Powerball, Lotto, Easy 5, and Mega Millions.

You have 180 days from the date of the lottery draw to claim your prize.


7. What taxes do I have to pay if I win a prize?

Lottery winnings in Louisiana are subject to both federal and state income taxes.

The Louisiana Lottery is required to withhold a part of certain lottery winnings for tax purposes as well as report any prize with a value over $600 to the IRS and the Louisiana Department of Revenue and Taxation. Find more details in the Tax Information section.


8. How do I claim my winnings in Louisiana?

You can claim prizes of $600 or less by mail, from an authorized lottery retailer or from the Louisiana Lottery office. If you win a jackpot prize, you can collect it from the Baton Rouge headquarters.

It is often recommended to consult with a lawyer or financial advisor before claiming any big lottery prize, as that can help you greatly during the claim process.


9. Can I buy lottery tickets for more than one draw?

Yes, you can purchase tickets for multiple consecutive draws for all the games offered in the state.
