Claiming Prizes of the Louisiana Lottery

Here are the steps you have to follow if you are a lucky winner of any Louisiana lottery,

  • Pay attention to the discreet Customer Display Unit when having your ticket cashed. The small screen will tell you whether or not your ticket is a winner, and if so, how much you have won.
  • If you are in doubt about how much you have won, ask the retailer for a receipt. If you are told your ticket is not a winner, you may request its return. There is no reason for a retailer to keep a nonwinning ticket.
