VIDALIA, La. – If you bought a Louisiana Lotto ticket for last Wednesday’s drawing, now might be a good time to check the numbers.

The winning Lotto ticket, which is worth $1,425,000, was sold in Vidalia.

&uot;But so far, no one’s stepped forward to claim the prize,&uot; said Dudley Lehew, public information manager for the Louisiana Lottery Corp.

By the way, the winning numbers are 11-19-26-28-29-32.

To claim the prize, the winner must bring the ticket to the Louisiana Lottery’s main office, Lehew said.

That office is located at 11200 Industriplex Blvd., Suite 190 in Baton Rouge.

And the ticket must claimed within 180 days after the drawing was held.

Louisiana Lottery Corp.’s policy is not to divulge which Vidalia store sold the ticket – at least, not until the winner steps forward.

But Lehew did note that the store will receive a cash bonus for selling the winning ticket. The amount of that bonus was not available as of Friday.

Seventeen other Lotto tickets sold throughout Louisiana had five of six numbers correct. Each of those tickets is worth $1,747.
