Earlier this week an attorney representing a group of family members accepted the Louisiana Lottery's largest payout ever. It was a payoff on a $191 million Powerball winning ticket that was purchased in Eunice.

If you're contemplating a financial Christmas miracle for your family you'll be pleased to know that both the Powerball and Mega Millions lottery games have jackpots that are well over $200 million.

The current Powerball jackpot is estimated to be $250 million, that's a quarter of a billion dollars when the drawing is held on Saturday night. The Mega Millions jackpot is estimated to be $208 million on Friday night when its next drawing is held.

The most recent Powerball drawing, December 13, 2017, had some winning tickets in Louisiana. The largest prize winner was a $50,000 ticket purchased in Bogalusa. While the most recent in-state win for the Mega Millions game was a $10,000 ticket sold in Metairie on November 24th.

We always caution players to play these games responsibly and only spend what you can afford to lose.
