BATON ROUGE – As of today, no one has stepped forward to claim a $500,000 Louisiana Lottery Lotto jackpot prize won on Feb. 13, 2021. The winning ticket was purchased at Food For Less on West Airline Highway in LaPlace and is set to expire Aug. 12.

The winning ticket matched all six numbers drawn to win $500,000. The winning numbers for the Feb. 13 drawing were 16-22-25-32-40-41.
“We look forward to the winner coming to claim this prize.  In the meantime, the individual should treat the ticket as cash,” said Lottery President Rose Hudson. “It is also a good idea to sign the back of the ticket for security purposes.”

The holder of the winning ticket has until 5 p.m. on the date of expiration to claim the prize, subject to the Lottery’s hours of operation. Winnings are subject to applicable federal and state tax withholdings. Lotto jackpot prizes must be claimed at Lottery headquarters in Baton Rouge.

Winners of the Lottery’s draw-style games must claim their prize within 180 days of the drawing.  After prizes have passed their redemption deadlines, they are deposited into the Lottery’s unclaimed prize fund, which is returned to players in the form of increased payouts on instant-win games and player promotions.

Ticket purchasers must be at least 21 years of age.  The Lottery encourages responsible play and urges anyone or friends of anyone with a gambling problem to call toll free 1-877-770-7867 for help.  A list of large unclaimed prizes set to expire in the next 90 days can be found on the Lottery’s website at
