Louisiana Lotto – GAME CHANGE

LOTTO NEWS: Louisiana Lotto is making some changes. This pick-6 lottery game has added 2 numbers to become a 6/42 game and remains $1 per play. The jackpot will double from $250,000 to $500,000. The odds of winning a Lotto jackpot will increase to 1 in 5,245,786. Overall odds of winning a LA Lotto prize are 1 in 34.4.

Game Change Stats

If you use Smart Luck lottery strategy software for Louisiana Lotto games, the same Advantage Gold lotto strategy program will work for this game. All you have to do is download the new history file (directly or with Lottery Updater – reselect the file in favorites if you use that option since it is a new file name). The file still includes the history for the old format, but once there is enough history with the new format, we will lock the game range to exclude the old drawings (which you can choose to use or not yourself). The old game file will no longer be updated.

Similarly, the same pick-6 wheels from Wheel Six Gold lottery wheeling software or FFWG will still work for this game.
