Louisiana's Powerball players are hoping last night's Mega Millions drawing is a sign of good things to come. While tonight's Powerball jackpot of $1.4 billion is substantially more than the Mega Millions jackpot from last night, it seems to suggest Lady Luck is lurking and she's lurking close by.

South Louisiana has been particularly hot when it comes to lottery wins. The Powerball game has produced three $100,000 winners within a 30 mile radius of Lafayette for the past two drawings, so maybe tonight for Powerball someone close to home will get lucky again.

And believe it or not there is a Lafayette connection to last night's Mega Millions win in Texas. We will explore that connection after you check your numbers. Here's the drawing from last night (10/06/23) in the Mega Millions Game. 

The numbers that were drawn last night were:

12   24   46   57   66   Mega Ball 22   Megaplier x3

You can verify those numbers at the Mega Millions official website. You will also see that Friday's game created seven instant millionaires. There were three $3 million dollar winning tickets that were sold in California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Washington. The game made million dollar winners in Michigan and New Jersey. But the biggest win came from Texas

Texas Lottery officials say last night's Mega Millions jackpot winner was sold in San Angelo Texas. The ticket was purchased at a Stripes convenience store. Now, here is the Lafayette, Louisiana connection. The football team from Texas State University is in Lafayette today. They play the Ragin Cajuns on Saturday afternoon.  So, who knows, you might be sitting next to a Mega Millionaire at the game.
