Lady Luck did not take the Memorial Holiday Weekend off as far as Louisiana's lottery players are concerned. The often fickle Ms. Luck smiled mightily on two players in particular. One of those players hit it big for $40,000 in the Mega Millions game on Friday while another hit a nice financial windfall of $50,000 in Saturday's Powerball drawing.

Here are the details so you can check your tickets in case you decided to try your luck.

For the Mega Millions drawing on Friday, May 22nd. A ticket sold in Sorrento Louisiana matched four of the white balls, the Mega Ball, and the player had opted in for the Megaplier option. That ticket was sold at Rende's Quick Stop #5 on John Leblanc Boulevard.

There have not been any big jackpot winners in either the Powerball or Mega Millions game for quite some time now. The Mega Millions jackpot will be at an estimated $313 million dollars for Tuesday night's drawing. The Powerball jackpot will climb to an estimated $114 million by Wednesday's drawing.

Good luck! If you choose to play, please play responsibly.
