Louisiana Lottery Games

Founded in 1991, the first Louisiana Lottery draw took place in January the following year. The Louisiana Lottery mostly runs state-based games, but also participates in the nationwide Powerball and Mega Millions games.

Louisiana Lottery proceeds go toward the funding of problem gambling counselling and similar programs, as well as to the Minimum Foundation Program that funds state education for children under the age of 12.

Powerball

Powerball is a world-famous lottery renowned for its long odds and often lucrative jackpots.

Powerball tickets cost $2.00, with players choosing five numbers between 1 and 69 plus a Powerball number between 1 and 26. Players can choose their numbers manually or go for a Quick Pick. A Power Play option is also available, costing $1.00 for the chance to multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.

Mega Millions

Mega Millions is another world-renowned lottery that’s even harder to win than Powerball, but with a very similar format.

As with Powerball, tickets cost $2.00.

Players must choose five numbers between 1 and 70 and a Mega Ball number between 1 and 25, with a Quick Pick option also available for random selections. Mega Millions has an additional Megaplier option for $1.00 for the chance to multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.

Lotto

Lotto is a straightforward lottery game that costs just $1.00 to enter.

Participants choose six numbers from 1 to 42 or can go for a Quick Pick for random selections.

Easy 5

Easy 5 is another uncomplicated lottery game, with the best overall odds of winning a prize of all Louisiana lotteries. Tickets cost just $1.00.

Players choose five numbers from 1 to 37 or can go for Quick Pick for random selections.

For an additional $1.00, participants can also add the ez match game to their ticket for a chance to win up to $250 on the spot.

Pick 5

Pick 5 has multiple entry options, with wagers of $0.50 and $1.00 available.

Players must choose five numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, the same number can be chosen repeatedly if desired. Participants then choose whether to bet on:

  • Matching numbers in the order drawn
  • Matching numbers in any order
  • Both of the above options, splitting a $1.00 stake across both bets
  • Matching the first or last pairs of numbers drawn
  • Matching the first or last three numbers drawn
  • Matching the first or last four numbers drawn

Pick 4

Pick 4 has multiple entry options, with stakes of $0.50 andr $1.00 available.

Players must choose four numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, the same number can be chosen repeatedly if desired. Participants then choose whether to bet on matching numbers in the order drawn, in any order, or to split a $1.00 stake equally between both options.

Players can also choose a Combo entry, for a ticket with every possible combination of the four player-chosen numbers. While this increases the chances of winning, it also increases the ticket price by up to 24 times.

Pick 3

Pick 3 has multiple entry options, with stakes of $0.50, $1.00 and $5.00 available.

Players must choose three numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, the same number can be chosen repeatedly if desired. Participants then choose whether to bet on matching numbers in the order drawn, in any order, or to split a $1.00 or $5.00 stake equally between both options.

There is also a Combo entry option, for a ticket with every possible combination of the three player-chosen numbers. Even though a combo ticket increases the chances of winning, it also increases the ticket price by three to six times.
