Louisiana Lottery Corporation
With dozens of colorful scratch-off games celebrating Louisiana and drawings occurring every night for top-prizes from $500 to over $40 million, no visit is complete without trying your luck on a Lottery game for as little as $1. Pick up your ticket to fun at local retailers across the state and bring a few home for family and friends. The Lottery offers two types of games: scratch-offs and draw-style. Scratch-offs or instant tickets require players to scratch off a latex surface on the ticket to find out immediately if they have won. The Lottery introduces approximately 70 scratch-off games each year with varying prices of $1, $2, $3, $5 and $10. Ticket art, game design and prize structures are developed by Lottery staff. Tickets are printed by the Lottery’s vendor, Scientific Games, under exacting quality control and security standards comparable to those in currency printing. As soon as all of the top prizes in a scratch-off game have been claimed, the Lottery immediately begins the process of pulling the game from sale. Games may also be closed when ticket inventory is near sell-out or at the discretion of the Lottery’s president. To play draw-style games, players choose their own numbers or allow the Lottery’s computers to choose their numbers and then wait for a drawing to be held to see if they have won. From time to time, the Lottery may also conduct raffle-style games with a set number of sequentially numbered raffle tickets for sale. The terminals used for draw-style games in retailer locations are part of a closed communications network with satellite in most locations, provided by Lottery vendor, INTRALOT. The INTRALOT gaming system cannot be accessed via the Internet or by the Lottery. This system is also separate from the Lottery drawing machine system. Current draw-style games include: Lotto, Easy 5, Pick 4, Pick 3, and two multi-state games in which Louisiana participates, Powerball and Mega Millions. Louisiana law requires ticket purchasers to be at least 21 years old.
