Participants will be eligible to win prizes of up to $100k and a 2021 season ticket prize package

Sales for the Louisiana Lottery’s two team-themed scratch-offs tickets are going strong with top prizes of up to $100,000 and a 2021 season ticket prize package still up for grabs.

The $2 Saints Geaux. Fight. Win. features top cash prizes of $14,000, and $5 Saints We Are Strong. We Are Loyal. We Are Family. boasts top cash prizes of $100,000.

“These scratch-offs mark the 12th launch in our partnership with the New Orleans Saints and their names truly reflect how we all feel about our team right now,” said Lottery President Rose Hudson. “The Saints have always had a way of uniting us as Louisianians and that hasn’t changed even under these trying circumstances of the pandemic.”

Nonwinning tickets from either game can be entered in any $10 combination into the final second-chance drawing to win a Saints 2021 Season Prize Package, including four Plaza Sideline tickets for the 2021 football season, four pregame field passes for every home game, a 2021 parking pass and a VIP tour of the Saints practice facility.

The winner and three guests will receive round-trip limo service to the facility in Metairie (or overnight accommodations if the distance exceeds 75 miles) where they will also view a team practice and have lunch in the team cafeteria.

To enter the second-chance drawings, players should complete the information on the back of $10 worth of nonwinning $2 Saints Geaux. Fight. Win. and/or $5 Saints We Are Strong. We Are Loyal. We Are Family. scratch-off tickets and mail them together in an envelope (no larger than 4.5″ by 9.5″) to the drawing address printed on the back of the ticket. Entries must contain at least $10 worth of nonwinning tickets from either game to be eligible. Players can enter as many times as they wish, but each complete entry should be mailed in a separate envelope. The drawings will be held within seven days of the entry deadline, which will be announced when the games have closed.

LA Lottery: Scratch-Off Winner Scratched Off Too Much

As he digs his winning scratch-off lottery ticket out of his wallet, Jerry Terry tells us he didn’t call us just to get his jackpot. Terry says he won two dollars on this ‘Cat Scratch Fever’ ticket two weeks ago. Terry says, “it says if you get the cat and two other numbers, you get that amount.” When Terry went to cash in, he says, “it came back that it was a non-winning ticket.” So Terry called the Baton Rouge Louisiana Lottery office and they told him to mail the ticket to them. Not wanting to lose his ticket, his only proof, he called us instead. Terry says, “if this happens to me, it could happen to someone with larger amounts.”

So we hit the phones and called Shreveport’s Louisiana Lottery headquarters. KSLA News 12’s Brent Forbes reads the ticket numbers over the phone saying, “I know the last two numbers are two and zero. I can’t read the first two, they’re scratched out.” And we got our answer right there! Forbes continues, “and that’s the reason he can’t cash it?”

Apparently terry scratched out the critical numbers. Forbes tells Terry, “send it to Baton Rouge they can identify your tickets and you should get your two dollars.” Terry says, “that’s good to know, there are probably others who don’t know so now they won’t scratch so hard.” If that happens it’s a six week wait for your winnings, two dollars or two-thousand.

The Louisiana Lottery says it does not deny payment on winning scratch-off lotto tickets. The game it’s had the most complaints about is the new “World Poker Tour” scratch off.

The Louisiana Lottery sells almost 119 million dollars worth of scratch-off tickets each year, but a Shreveport man says he’s not getting his share of the winnings. The Lottery says players should "scratch carefully."
