About the Louisiana Lottery

The modern LA Lottery began in 1991 after legislation was passed in 1990 to create a lottery that would increase state revenue without raising taxes.

The Louisiana Lottery ranks 2nd among other U.S. jurisdictional lotteries in the percentage of revenue transferred to its government. At least 35% of all LA Lottery revenue is transferred annually to the state treasury. In 2004, the Louisiana constitution made it such that Lottery proceeds be earmarked for the Minimum Foundation Program (MFP), which benefits K-12 public education in the state. Additionally, the first $500,000 in annual Lottery proceeds is set aside to fund problem gambling programs. As of the 2019 fiscal year, the Lottery had transferred more than $3.7 billion to the state treasury, and more than $184.3 million was transferred from sales in FY 2019 alone.

History of the Louisiana Lottery

The Louisiana Lottery was created in 1991 as a way to generate revenue for the state without raising taxes thanks to a constitutional amendment passed by voters in 1990. The first scratch-off games went on sale on September 6th, 1991 and Powerball tickets went on sale in the state in 1995. The state joined the Mega Millions game in November 2011.

As of July 2004, Louisiana Lottery proceeds raised through ticket sales are allocated to the Minimum Foundation Program, which helps raise money for K-12 education in the state. Out of every dollar in ticket sales, 35.5 cents is transferred to the State Treasury to help children across the state receive the education they need to succeed in every stage of their lives.

Rules

The minimum age to play the lottery in Louisiana is 21, unlike in many other states where it is 18, this applies to both residents and visitors.

If you receive a ticket with a misprint then you need to alert your retailer as soon as possible. Refunds cannot be given for scratch-offs that have already been scratched or tickets for drawings which have already taken place.

Louisiana lottery games are not drawn on Christmas Day or Easter Sunday, if multi-state games Powerball and Mega Millions fall on these dates then they will still be drawn as normal.
