It’s a Ticket Checker!

Scan the barcode on the front of your draw-style and scratch-off game tickets with your device's camera to determine whether it is a winner and the amount of the win!  Results are saved as a reminder to cash in and are updated as future drawings occur on multidraw tickets. 

It’s a Virtual Mobile Playslip!

The mobile app ticket checker can only display winning information for drawings that have occurred. If you scan your ticket before the drawing your ticket is valid for or if your ticket is valid for drawings that still remain, the message will display that the ticket is NOT YET A WINNER and that there are pending drawings on your ticket.

You do not have to scan your ticket again. After the drawing has occurred, visit the "Checked Tickets" area of the app, located in the User Account, which can be accessed by tapping the head icon on the app home screen. A list of all previously scanned tickets is stored here. Tap on the ticket you are interested and updated results will appear.

If your ticket has not won a prize on a previous drawing, but still has drawings remaining, the message will continue to indicate NOT YET A WINNER and will display the number of  pending drawings. The NOT A WINNER message will only appear after all drawings have occurred and a prize is not won in any of them.

There may be a few reasons why the app, displays the message Not Active when scanning a scratch-off ticket. Most likely, the retailer who sold you the ticket has forgotton to activate the pack of tickets prior to selling. Please contact the Lottery at 225-297-2000 and have the ticket in question available so that we may assist in resolving the issue.

This message may also display if you have a ticket in which the prize has expired. Scratch-off games must be claimed within 90 days of the announced game closure date. For a list of expired games, click here. For a list of games with approaching claim redemption deadlines, click here.

Draw-style game tickets must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing. Once the respective claim time period has passed, the prize is expired. Expired prizes cannot be paid.

No, you do not have to wait until all the drawings have occurred on a multidraw ticket in order to claim a prize from a previous drawing. If you choose to claim your prize, you will receive an Exchange ticket that is good for the balance of any pending drawings at the time. The ticket that you cashed will not display as PAID in the app's Checked Tickets listl located in the User Account, which can be accessed by tapping the head icon located on the app home screen.  Since the Exchange ticket is now the active ticket for pending drawings, you must check/scan this replacement ticket to continue to track any winning information for those drawings.

According to Lottery administrative and game rules, a valid, original, printed winning ticket is required to claim a prize. The winner message using the Lottery's ticket checking function on the app is NOT a negotiable instrument.
