Easy 5 is the Louisiana Lottery's "quiet game". We call it that because you don't hear that much about it until there is a big winner. Well, there was a big winner in Saturday's Easy 5 game. A ticket sold in Many Louisiana matched all five of the numbers needed to claim the game's top prize of $110,000. The jackpot will now reset for Wednesday's drawing. The game's jackpot will be restarted at $50,000.

Please remember that lottery games are games of chance and most tickets do not win. Spend only what you can afford to lose and if you need help negotiating an issue with gambling it is available. Call 1-877-770-STOP (7867) for a free and confidential referral to a counselor who can help.
