Kenner man wins Lotto jackpot


Baton Rouge, La. -  A Kenner man is a whole lot richer, after winning the November 24th Lotto jackpot. While Louisiana - and the nation - focused on the record $587.5 million Powerball jackpot last week, Arthur Blanco collected his $921,327 Lotto jackpot prize.  

After realizing that his ticket matched all six numbers in the Lotto drawing, Blanco waited a few days to consult with his brother. By the time Blanco visited Lottery headquarters in Baton Rouge to claim his prize, the Powerball frenzy had begun.

Blanco received $644,988.90 after taxes. Blanco, who says he plays Lotto regularly, picked his own numbers for the game. He purchased the winning ticket at Shop-N-Go on Williams Boulevard in Kenner. The store will receive a one-time selling bonus of $9,213, which is one percent of the prize.

Lotto is the Louisiana Lottery's flagship game with a cash jackpot that starts at $250,000. Lotto drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday except for Christmas Day. You can catch all of the winning lottery numbers nightly on Fox 8 TV.
