Powerball Changes: Game sales and interest rates to determine advertised Powerball jackpot

The Minnesota Lottery is a member of the Powerball Product Group, a national association made of lottery directors from across the country. On April 2, the Powerball Product Group announced that changes, which will be effective following the April 8 drawing, are needed to ensure that ticket sales can support the Powerball jackpot and lower-tier prizes.

Powerball game sales have declined in lottery jurisdictions across the country since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Because of the decline in sales, the current minimum starting jackpot and the minimum rolling increases can no longer be supported.

Beginning with the April 8, 2020 drawing all Powerball jackpot rolls will increase based on sales, instead of a $10 million minimum increase. Starting jackpots will also be determined based on sales.

Starting jackpots and minimum rolling amounts will be determined by the Powerball Product Group based on Powerball ticket sales and current interest rates prior to each drawing.

Due to these changes, the Minnesota Lottery will reimburse players who meet the following requirement:

Any player who purchased a “multi-draw” Powerball Ticket from the Minnesota Lottery on or before 5:00 p.m. on April 2, 2020, may claim a refund for the price of all remaining drawings after April 8, 2020 through the expiration of your multi-draw ticket. You can keep your original ticket for free and it will remain eligible to claim any advertised prize associated with your ticket based upon the new game rules. The Minnesota Lottery must receive your refund claim form and copies of qualifying tickets on or before December 31, 2020 for reimbursement. Click here for more information.

The Lottery, like all other state agencies, continues to operate and is strictly following guidance from MMB and the Governor, state law, and within the boundaries set by all the Executive Orders that have been put in place. Our number one priority is the safety of our employees, customers and partners. To that end, we have implemented additional safety measures to comply with all Executive Orders.

Our Lottery products remain available inside those retail partner establishments that have been given the ok to remain open by the state. The Lottery has discontinued product promotions and is only supporting retail partners at this time. If you have questions about these Powerball changes, please click here.

Minnesota Powerball Lotto Game

Game Features

For just $1 per drawing, play Louisiana’s flagship game to win a jackpot that starts at half-a-million dollars – CASH – plus three other prize levels every Wednesday and Saturday! Choose six numbers from 1 through 42. You can pick your own numbers or let the Lottery’s computer randomly Quick Pick them.

The Drawing

Lotto drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday except for Christmas Day. Make sure you buy your tickets for each Lotto drawing by 9:30 p.m. on the day of the drawing. Tickets purchased after 9:30 p.m. on drawing nights will be valid for the next drawing(s). Lotto winning numbers are displayed on Official Draw Show stations every Wednesday and Saturday night and updated on this website.

How Multidraw Works

Save time with multidraw by playing your numbers for multiple drawings. You can play 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 or 20 consecutive drawings. When you claim a prize, you’ll receive an Exchange ticket for the balance of the drawings remaining.

How the Prizes Work

The Lotto jackpot starts at a guaranteed $500,000 cash but grows for each drawing based on sales until it is won. Jackpot prizes as well as prizes for the match-5 and match-4 level are pari-mutuel and are divided equally among all winning tickets of the prize, while the match-3 prize is a fixed amount.

See the “How to Win” tab for a prize chart.

Ways to Play

Paper Playslip. In blue or black ink, fill in your numbers and game options on a paper playslip available in the retailer’s Lottery Play Center. You may play up to five sets of numbers on each playslip.
Digital Playslip. Select and save your numbers and game options on the Louisiana Lottery Official Mobile App and show the resulting code at checkout for your ticket to print.
Ask the Retailer. If you want a Quick Pick, tell the clerk. You can play up to 10 Quick Picks on one ticket.
Replay Feature. To play the same numbers, number of drawings and game options as on a previously played ticket, present it to the retailer and ask for a Replay!

Lotto can also be played with other Lottery draw-style games. Find out more about our game bundling options!

* 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.
