The deadline to enter for the state's third "Shot At A Million" lottery drawing is Friday.

Vaccinated Louisiana residents have until July 23 at 11:59 pm to enter for a chance to win the third $100,000 prize.

On Friday, the winners of the second drawing will be announced.

See the schedule for the the remaining $100,000 and Grand Prize drawings below:

  • Enter by July 23, 2021, by 11:59 p.m. CDT for the July 28 drawing
  • Enter by July 30, 2021, by 11:59 p.m. CDT for the August 4 drawing
  • Enter by July 31, 2021, by 11:59 p.m. CDT for the August 4 Grand Prize Drawing.

Winners will be announced two days after the drawing to allow time to confirm vaccination status.

On July 16, the winners of the first drawing were announced as 80-year-old Clement Dasalla of New Orleans and 17-year-old Skyla Degrasse of Hammond.

A total of 14 vaccinated Louisianans will win scholarships and cash prizes – including one adult who will win $1 million – throughout July as part of the campaign to reward residents who have taken or who choose to get their COVID-19 vaccine

Louisianans who have gotten the vaccine can register online at ShotAtAMillion.com. Residents who do not have access to the internet or who have questions can call the toll-free hotline at 877-356-1511 to register, starting Monday.

Residents who have taken at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and are age 18 or older may enter to win one of four $100,000 prizes and the grand prize of $1 million. Louisianans who have taken at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and are between the ages of 12 and 17 may enter to win one of nine $100,000 scholarships. Louisianans are eligible if they have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine before the drawing date – regardless of when they were vaccinated.

Overall awards will total $2.3 million, paid using federal COVID outreach dollars.

The Louisiana Lottery Corporation is assisting the Louisiana Department of Health with structuring the reward program and conducting the randomized drawings, with LDH and the Legislative Auditor present. LDH will not share a person's vaccine status or health information with the Louisiana Lottery Corporation and will confirm the vaccination status of the winner after de-identifying the person's information.
