According to the Louisiana Lottery Company, two tickets that were sold in New Orleans and Harahan matched four out of five numbers plus the Powerball to win $50,000.

The prize will be the eighth largest in the history of the United States lottery if it goes off at the weekend.

The $550 million prize refers to the annuity option, paid over 29 years. It matched five numbers but not the Powerball and was one of three second-prize tickets sold nationally.
