The Louisiana Lottery will again join other Powerball lotteries across the nation in the 2024 NASCAR Powerball Playoff™ Promotion to qualify Louisiana players for entry into a national drawing for a $1 million prize broadcast live from the Phoenix Raceway during NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race™ on Nov. 10.

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. 13, 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 Sept. 1 at the Cook Out Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway to go head-to-head in a series of three additional drawings that coincide with the elimination rounds during the NASCAR Playoffs™, with those eliminated winning cash prizes of $2,500 to $7,500, depending upon their elimination position.

The draw series will culminate with four finalists receiving a four-day/three-night VIP NASCAR Championship Weekend™ Prize Pack experience prize for themselves and a guest to the NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race™ on Nov. 10, during which one of the four finalists will win $1 million during a special televised drawing. 

The 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. 9 and the NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race™ on Nov. 10, 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. 

To enter, players should include their name, email address and phone number on the back of one nonwinning 5-board Louisiana Lottery Powerball ticket good for any drawing May 20 through July 1, 2024, and mail it in an envelope no larger than 4.5” x 9.5” by July 8, 2024 to:
