LOTTERY DRAWINGS PRODUCE $7.2 MILLION IN WINNINGS IN JANUARY WHILE SCRATCH-OFF WINNERS CLAIM $12.3 M
February 11, 2017
Paying for a honeymoon and buying a new car were just a few of the plans Louisiana Lottery players had for some of the more than $12.3 million in scratch-off prizes claimed in January. The Lottery also reported more than $7.2 million won during drawings held in January.

January’s draw-style game winnings included three $50,000 match-4 + PB prizes and 57 match-4 prizes totaling $5,700. There was also one Mega Millions match-4 + MB prize of $5,000 and 33 match-4 prizes totaling $16,500. Seventy-seven players won Lotto match-5 prizes totaling $180,249, helping to bring Lotto’s monthly total winnings to $525,526. Pick 3 winning tickets totaled $2,014,350 and Pick 4 winning tickets totaled $2,426,800. 

One player won a $567,708 Easy 5 jackpot prize and 346 players won Easy 5 match-4 prizes totaling $34,600, which brought the game’s monthly total winnings to $778,762 with an additional $135,158 won on ezmatch, an instant-win option available for an additional $1.  

“More than 23,000 Power Play purchasers won a bonus total of $364,415 in addition to their regular Powerball prizes,” Lottery President Rose Hudson said. “Over 33,000 Megaplier purchasers won a bonus total of $159,119 in addition to their regular Mega Millions prizes.” The Power Play option offers Powerball players the chance to increase any nonjackpot winnings. The $1 Megaplier add-on multiplies nonjackpot Mega Millions prizes by a multiplier number selected during the drawing. 

In total, draw-style game winnings from drawings held in January were $7,288,886. Lottery draw-style game players have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim the winnings from those tickets. 

“We encourage players to sign the back of their tickets immediately after purchasing and to check them promptly after the drawing. Even if a ticket does not win the jackpot, it could have won another prize,” Hudson added.

In addition to $12,360,243 in scratch-off cash prizes paid during January, players also claimed $1,836,265 worth of free-ticket prizes. According to Lottery policy, scratch-off games are closed when all top prizes are claimed, and scratch-off players have 90 days from the official game closure date to redeem a winning ticket. A list of current scratch-off games, prizes remaining and claim deadlines can be found on its website, www.louisianalottery.com/scratch-offs.

While actual game performance and the amount of prizes claimed will vary from month to month, the Lottery allocates nearly 53 percent of sales to fund prizes. At least 35 percent of sales is transferred to the state treasury for the Minimum Foundation Program that funds K-12 public education in Louisiana. Retailers are paid at least 5 percent compensation, and the Lottery retains approximately 6 percent of sales to operate.
