The winning ticket matched four of the five White Ball numbers drawn and the Powerball number to win $50,000. The winning numbers for the November 5 draw were 28-45-53-56-69 and the Powerball number was 20.
“We look forward to the winner reaching out to claim this prize. In the meantime, the person should treat the ticket as cash,” said Lottery President Rose Hudson. “It’s also a good idea to sign the back of the ticket for security.”
The holder of the winning ticket has until May 4, 5 p.m. to claim the prize. Powerball prizes over $5,000 must be claimed at one of the lottery’s five regional offices statewide or at the lottery’s headquarters in Baton Rouge. Lafayette’s regional office is at 5520 Johnston Street.
Winners of the lottery drawing games must claim their prize within 180 days of the drawing. After the prizes have passed their redemption period, they are deposited into the lottery’s unclaimed prize fund, which is returned to players in the form of increased payouts for instant win games and player promotions.
Ticket buyers must be at least 21 years old. For a list of major unclaimed prizes that will expire in the next 90 days, visit the lottery’s website at louisianalottery.com/unclaimed-prizes.
