Those who are interested in playing the Louisiana lottery should rest assured that their money- in addition to helping them to win prizes- is also doing good. Lotteries often contribute to statewide organizations to help with improvements in many areas. The Louisiana Lottery is no different. Knowing a bit of Louisiana lottery information, as well as the history of the lottery itself, can help make your game play more enjoyable.

Louisiana Lottery History

The Louisiana State Lottery Corporation started in 1991 after the legislature proposed the idea to the public in 1990. The public voted on an amendment to allow the state lottery to begin as a way to create additional revenue for the state to fund some of the state programs without raising taxes. The amendment was passed overwhelmingly by the public with a 69% to 31% majority.

The Louisiana Lottery is overseen by many different people. These people are responsible for the drawings, budget, verification, and rules of the state lottery. The people that are responsible for overseeing the Louisiana Lottery include the Governor of Louisiana, Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget, Senate Judiciary B Committee, House Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice, and the Attorney General Board of Directors. These individuals are obviously doing a good job... since its inception in 1991, the Louisiana Lottery has earned recognition as being superior in their financial reporting throughout the years.

Louisiana Lottery Proceeds

Most lottery proceeds from the Louisiana lottery are used to fund different state programs, as well as to fund the lottery so prizes can be awarded when people win.

  • More than half of all lottery proceeds go to fund the lottery itself, so that they can pay the winners.
  • Approximately 35% of lottery proceeds go to the state treasury of Louisiana to fund the Minimum Foundation Program. This is a program that helps to improve public education in the state of Louisiana.
  • The first $500,000 annually that the lotto makes also goes to the state treasury to fund programs that help people with gambling problems. Since its start in 1991, the Louisiana Lottery has given more than $1.8 million to the state treasury to fund programs of this nature.

The Louisiana lottery ranks fourth among all states in total revenue and first among the states that have a lottery of the same size. In addition, the Louisiana Lottery also contributes about 10% of its proceeds to operate its Headquarters, Distribution Center, and five regional offices spread statewide. Another 5% of all the lottery proceeds go to the 2,600 stores and other locations that sell tickets as commission incentive for sales.

Big Lottery Winners

One famous winner in the Louisiana Lottery was a couple who almost did not buy their tickets. Natchez, Louisiana residents Ronald J. Panda and his wife Jackie typically play a set of numbers every week. However, her husband was reluctant to tear himself away from the Louisiana State College Football game to make a trip to purchase the tickets. The next morning, Jackie checked the paper and the Website to verify the numbers. She called her husband to make sure he had went to actually buy the tickets and he indicated that he had. They won $762,673 jackpot. They took the lump sum one-time payment and after taxes they walked away with $533,871.21. They planned to use the money to get out of debt and so that Ronald could officially retire.
