Building on the excitement and popularity of the multistate, multimillion-dollar-jackpot draw-style game, the Louisiana Lottery will bring the Powerball® brand to a scratch-off game on April 3. Powerball the scratch-off game (#1477) will debut at the $2 price point with top prizes of $15,000 plus an extravaganza of second-chance prizes, the first of which will qualify Louisiana players for entry into a national drawing for a $1 million prize broadcast live from the Phoenix Raceway during NASCAR® Championship Weekend, Nov. 3-5!

"With both brands’ extraordinary ability to create memorable moments that bring everyone together to dream big, Powerball recently became an Official Partner of NASCAR," noted Lottery President Rose Hudson. "To kick off the new partnership and the 2023 season, NASCAR and Powerball created a season-long promotion that will culminate with one player winning a million dollars live at the race!"

As a participating lottery in the national NASCAR Powerball Playoff promotion, Louisiana will receive 25 semifinalist entries out of all national entries from participating lotteries. On Aug. 12, 16 of those national entries will be drawn with no more than one semifinalist per participating lottery advancing, so that all 16 of the initial semifinalists will be from a different lottery. Those 16 semifinalists will be announced on Aug. 26 at the Coke Zero Sugar 400 in Daytona to go head-to-head in a series of four additional drawings that coincide with the elimination rounds during the NASCAR Playoffs.

The draw series will culminate with four finalists receiving a four-day/three-night VIP NASCAR Trip experience prize for themselves and a guest to the NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race on Nov. 5, during which one of the four finalists will win $1 million during a special televised drawing. Cash prizes of $2,500 to $1 million will be awarded to all 16 national semifinalists based on their elimination position.

The NASCAR VIP Trip experience prize includes round trip airfare for two, three-night hotel accommodations (double occupancy), two Ally Curve Hospitality Club passes for both the NASCAR Xfinity Series Championship Race on Nov. 4 and the NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race on Nov. 5, two passes for VIP Experiences at Phoenix Raceway during the NASCAR Championship Weekend including tours, pace car rides and Victory Lane access, souvenir gift bags valued at $250, welcome dinner and all meals and ground transportation to scheduled events and activities.
