This holiday season, the Louisiana Lottery Corporation will give Powerball players the chance to win a share of bonus prizes totaling $300,000 during a series of five weekly drawings every time they add the Power Play to their ticket.

From Nov. 11 to Dec. 15, when players purchase any Powerball with Power Play ticket, they will receive an additional Holiday Bonus entry ticket, which features a seven-digit raffle number entered into the next weekly bonus drawing for $60,000 in prizes. 

Power Play is a Powerball ticket add-on option available for an additional $1 per play, which allows the player to increase any nonjackpot prize won.

 “Who couldn’t use a little extra fun and a little extra cash during the holidays?” noted Lottery President Rose Hudson. “This promotion gives our players both – another bonus game plus a chance at more prizes. It’s our gift to all those who love Powerball!”

Tickets purchased from Sunday to Saturday at midnight are entered into the next drawing to occur on Monday. During each drawing, one number will be drawn to win $25,000, one number will be drawn to win $10,000, and 50 numbers will be drawn to win $500 for a total of 52 weekly winners.

Holiday Bonus entry tickets are valid for only one bonus drawing, and that draw date will print on the entry ticket. Only one Holiday Bonus entry ticket will print for each Powerball with Power Play ticket purchased regardless of the number of plays on the ticket or the number of drawings it is good for.

Powerball with Power Play Holiday Bonus drawing results will be available on the Lottery's website and via winning numbers reports on the retailer Lottery terminals following each drawing. 
Holiday Bonus prizes of $500 can be paid by Lottery retailers, but $10,000 and $25,000 prizes must be claimed at a Lottery regional office. As with all draw-style games, prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the Holiday Bonus drawing.

Complete game and promotion rules can be found on the Lottery's website, and Lottery ticket purchasers must be at least 21 years of age. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, help is available by calling 1-877-770-7867. For security purposes, the Lottery encourages players to sign the back of their tickets immediately after purchasing.
