How to Play Louisiana Easy 5?
Louisiana Lottery launched a new draw-style game, Easy 5, with a starting pari-mutuel cash jackpot of $50,000 that keeps
growing until it is won by matching five numbers in a field of 1 to 37. Easy 5 sales will start Sept. 16 with the first drawing
to be held Sept. 19.
Prizes can be won for matching as few as two numbers, and the overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 8. The odds of winning
the jackpot are 1 in 435,897.
The first Easy 5 drawing will occur Sept. 19, with subsequent drawings every Wednesday and Saturday evenings, like Powerball
and Lotto, the Lottery's other two draw-style jackpot games. To be eligible, tickets must be purchased by 9:30 p.m. on the
night of the drawing.
With the launch of Easy 5, the Lottery will also unveil a new instant-win feature, ezmatch, available as an add-on option
to Easy 5 tickets for an additional $1 per play. When the ezmatch option is purchased, the Lottery's terminal will print
five ezmatch numbers in a column on the player's Easy 5 ticket along with corresponding instant prize amounts for each number.
Instant prizes of up to $250 can be won for each ezmatch number that matches an Easy 5 number on the ticket. The ezmatch
option will be available for a limited time.
With the introduction of Easy 5, the Lottery will end sales for another draw-style game, Cash Quest, on Saturday, Sept. 15
at 9:30 p.m., with the final drawing to occur that evening. Drawings are currently held five days a week, Monday through
