Mobile App Guide

A printable guide walks through the basic functions of the Louisiana Lottery Official Mobile App, including instructions for creating playslips, using the different number selection methods available on the app, checking your scratch-off and draw-style game tickets using the app and more.

You cannot purchase a ticket directly from the mobile app, but you can create and save a digital playslip to save you time when you purchase your ticket at a Lottery retailer.

You can select favorite numbers to have them available for use across games. To use favorite numbers, you must select them using the Favorite Numbers button located in your User Account, which can be accessed from the app home screen by tapping the head icon in the upper right hand corner. Select your favorite or tap again to unselect. When you are satisfied with your choices, tap the checkmark button.

To use your Favoirte Numbers on your playslip, select the heart icon on the playslip creation screen. Select from your favorite numbers the ones you want to use or tap again to unselect. Only the favorite numbers that fall within that game’s matrix will be available for selection. When you are satisfied with your selections, tap the checkmark icon in the upper right hand of the screen. These numbers will be added to a Favorites play on your playslip. If you select fewer than the total numbers needed to complete the play, the app will automatically generate the remaining number(s).

The mobile app ticket checker can only display winning information for drawings that have occurred. If you scan your ticket before the drawing your ticket is valid for or if your ticket is valid for drawings that still remain, the message will display that the ticket is NOT YET A WINNER and that there are pending drawings on your ticket.

You do not have to scan your ticket again. After the drawing has occurred, visit the “Checked Tickets” area of the app, located in the User Account, which can be accessed by tapping the head icon on the app home screen. A list of all previously scanned tickets is stored here. Tap on the ticket you are interested and updated results will appear.

If your ticket has not won a prize on a previous drawing, but still has drawings remaining, the message will continue to indicate NOT YET A WINNER and will display the number of pending drawings. The NOT A WINNER message will only appear after all drawings have occurred and a prize is not won in any of them.

There may be a few reasons why the app, displays the message Not Active when scanning a scratch-off ticket. Most likely, the retailer who sold you the ticket has forgotton to activate the pack of tickets prior to selling. Please contact the Lottery at 225-297-2000 and have the ticket in question available so that we may assist in resolving the issue.

This message may also display if you have a ticket in which the prize has expired. Scratch-off games must be claimed within 90 days of the announced game closure date. For a list of expired games, click here. For a list of games with approaching claim redemption deadlines, click here.

Draw-style game tickets must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing. Once the respective claim time period has passed, the prize is expired. Expired prizes cannot be paid.

No, you do not have to wait until all the drawings have occurred on a multidraw ticket in order to claim a prize from a previous drawing. If you choose to claim your prize, you will receive an Exchange ticket that is good for the balance of any pending drawings at the time. The ticket that you cashed will not display as PAID in the app’s Checked Tickets listl located in the User Account, which can be accessed by tapping the head icon located on the app home screen. Since the Exchange ticket is now the active ticket for pending drawings, you must check/scan this replacement ticket to continue to track any winning information for those drawings.

According to Lottery administrative and game rules, a valid, original, printed winning ticket is required to claim a prize. The winner message using the Lottery’s ticket checking function on the app is NOT a negotiable instrument.

Congratulations on creating your playslip. To use it to purchase a ticket, you must present the digital playslip code to be scanned at any Lottery retailer. Every time you save a playslip, a QR code will appear along with the price of the ticket. You can retrieve the playslip code at a later time in the app by selecting the Saved Playslips button located in your User Account, which can be accessed by tapping the head icon in the upper right hand corner of the app home screen.

The Saved Playslips screen will display all the playslips you have saved, as well as their cost and the date you created them. You can sort by game, date and ticket cost. Find the playslip you want and tap on the code icon to retrieve the digital playslip code to present to your Lottery retailer.

The Lottery’s mobile app allows you to select your numbers for many draw-style game based on their frequency or infrequency of being drawn over the last year’s worth of drawings. To do this, select the Statistics (bar graph) icon as you are creating your playslip.

The Statistics screen defaults to display Times Since Drawn, with the ball numbers displayed on the left and the number of drawings since they were drawn on the right. The list defaults to display the results in decending order so that those numbers that have had the most drawings without being drawn appear at the top. By tapping the down-arrow button in the top bar of the screen, you can reorder the list to see the numbers that have been drawn most recently.

Alternatively, you can select the Times Drawn button to display the total number of drawings in which the number was drawn in the last year. The list defaults to display the results in decending order so that those numbers that have been drawin the most in the last year appear at the top. Again, you can tap the down-arrow button to reorder the list to see the numnbers that have been drawn least in the last year.

Tap a ball number to add it to your play; to unselect a number, tap it again. Your selections will appear at bottom of the screen. To clear all of your selection at once, tap the trash can icon. When you are satisfied with your selections, tap the NEXT button to have the Statistics play added to your playslip. If you select fewer that the total numbers needed to complete the play, the app will automatically generate the remaining number(s) needed.

* Lotto’s match-5 and match-4 prizes are pari-mutuel. A pari-mutuel prize is determined by dividing the prize pool equally among the winners, and may vary for each drawing. Lotto is structured to average approximately $1,000 and $50 for the match 5 and match 4 prize levels respectively. The jackpot prize is also a pari-mutuel prize and will be divided equally among all jackpot-winning tickets. If the jackpot is not won, the prize is carried over and added to the jackpot prize pool of the next drawing.

No. State law prevents the sale of Louisiana Lottery products through the Internet. Only licensed retailers are legally authorized to sell Louisiana Lottery tickets.

Yes! The multidraw features on the Lottery’s draw-style games allows players to purchase plays for multiple drawings, up to 14 for Pick 3 and Pick 4 and up to 20 for Powerball, Mega Millions, Lotto and Easy 5. If you win a prize during one of the drawings, you do not have to wait until the last drawing has occurred before collecting those winnings. When you cash a winning multidraw ticket with drawings still remaining, the Lottery’s terminal system will print out an exchange ticket good for the balance of the remaining drawings and with the same numbers as on your original ticket. The retailer will retain the original ticket as it is no longer valid and give your exchange ticket with your winnings.

Winning scratch-off tickets can be claimed up to 90 days following the closure of the game. A list of closed games and end-of-redemption dates can be found on this website. Winning draw-style game tickets can be claimed up to 180 days following the drawing in which the prize was won.

Players should sign the back of their ticket for security purposes, secure their ticket and treat it as cash. We also recommend that players who believe they hold a Powerball, Mega Millions or Lotto jackpot-winning ticket contact the Lottery’s headquarters immediately at 225-297-2000 to schedule a time to claim their prize and have their questions answered. This will facilitate a smooth prize payment process. Players who believe they hold a jackpot-winning ticket must bring the original ticket to the Lottery’s corporate headquarters in Baton Rouge within 180 days of the drawing in which the prize was won for verification and any prize payment. The Lottery recommends that before coming to claim a jackpot prize, winners get financial advice so they fully understand the tax or other legal implications involved.

If you win more than $600 and are therefore required to claim your prize at a Lottery office, you will be required to complete a claim form for tax purposes. Under the Lottery’s statute, all prize payment records are open records, meaning that the public has a right to request the information. Depending upon the amount won and public or media interest in the win, winners may NOT be able to remain anonymous. The statute also allows the Lottery to use winners’ names and city of residence for publicity purposes such as news releases. The Lottery’s regular practice is not to use winner information in paid advertising or product promotion without the winner’s willingness to participate.

When a prize is claimed it becomes the property of that individual, even if the prize is paid out as an annuity. Hence, all winnings become a part of the estate of the deceased.

The winning numbers or results of Powerball, Lotto, Pick 3 and Pick 4 drawings are broadcast beginning at 9:59 p.m on the following television stations. Mega Millions drawings are broadcast at 10:00 p.m. on the following TV stations, except for WVUE-FOX8 where it airs at the top of the first commercial break of the hour.

December 4, 1996. A second weekly drawing was added for drawings on Wednesday and Saturdays and the minimum jackpot prize was reduced from $500,000 to $250,000.

On Aug. 2, 2020, the Lottery raised the minimum starting jackpot from $250,000 to $500,000 in order to be able to offer players more jackpots worth $1 million or more throughout the year.
