The Louisiana Lottery has announced it is launching a third edition to its daily numbers family of games named Pick 5.
Following on from Pick 3 and Pick 4, the new game has a top prize of $50,000 and offers players the chance to win big daily.
Players must match at least two of the digits in any order to win a prize, depending upon the play type selected and the amount of the wager.
Similarly to Pick 3 and Pick 4, Pick 5 can be played Straight (all digits must match in exact order to win), Box (all digits must match in any order to win) or Straight/Box (combines a 50-cent straight play and a 50-cent box play). Prizes vary depending on which game type the players selects but top prizes are $50,000 for the $1 straight play or $25,000 for a 50-cent straight play.
The addition of the new product follows a successful period for the lottery, in which sales and profits are growing.
The lottery’s President, Rose Hudson, commented: “Our daily numbers game sales have shown solid, continual growth over the last several years with fiscal year sales up more than 21% over last year.
“We believe our daily numbers game players are ready for something new and more options to play their favourite number.”
