If you find this ticket in your wallet, Louisiana Lottery officials say you should treat it like cash. In other words, don't let it out of your sight and definitely don't let anyone else sign the back. You'll want to do that for security purposes. All prizes bigger than $5,000 must be claimed at Louisiana Lottery headquarters in Baton Rouge or one of the five satellite offices located throughout the state.
