Louisiana Powerball players will have another reason to smile starting Jan. 26. That's when the Multi-State Lottery Association, which operates Powerball on behalf of 44 lotteries, will kick off a four-week "Watch to Win" promotion to give away cool, tech prizes like Blu-ray players, notebook PCs and gaming systems.
During the promotion, a different secret word will be aired after eight consecutive Wednesday and Saturday night Powerball drawings and announced on the Louisiana Lottery's website. To participate in the promotion, players should enter that secret word on Powerball's website by noon (CST) the following Friday or Monday.
There is no purchase necessary, but entrants must be at least 21 years of age to win a "Watch to Win" prize. All aspects of the promotion, including drawings and prize fulfillment, are being conducted by the Multi-State Lottery Association. Complete rules are available on Powerball's website.
"As part of the Powerball family, the Louisiana Lottery is pleased to provide our players with a little lagniappe to make their playing experience even more enjoyable," said Louisiana Lottery President Rose Hudson. "We wish all of them good luck during Powerball's 'Watch to Win' promotion!"
