(NBC LOCAL 33) (FOX 44) – (4/22/19) The Louisiana Lottery discovered some Pick 3 and Pick 4 tickets inadvertently included a draw date of Sunday, April 21. Per Lottery policy, no drawings take place on Easter Sunday.
Therefore, Pick 3 and Pick 4 tickets generated for an April 21 draw date will be good for the next regularly scheduled drawing to occur tonight, Monday, April 22. Also, multidraw and advance play Pick 3 and Pick 4 tickets that included or spanned April 21 will be good for another drawing date, following the date range printed on the ticket.
Tickets affected by the printing error were generated between April 2 and April 20 at 1:44 p.m. These tickets are good for the correct number of drawings purchased; however, April 21 was inadvertently included in the corresponding draw date range printed on the ticket.
To determine whether their Pick 3 or Pick 4 ticket was affected, players should compare the number of drawings their ticket is good for to the number of days included in the date range.
There were about 14,000 Pick 3 and Pick 4 tickets affected by the printing error. The Lottery regrets the error and the inconvenience to players.
