The last letter "z" punctuates the common acronym for "Laughing Out Loud" and provides a visual hard stop, or "end of line"; commonly interpreted as a "courtesy laugh." The "z" may have origins in the phonetic pronunciation, "Zulu," in common use by many western military forces. The letter "z" is also the last letter of the modern Latin alphabet. While LOL is rooted in the common history of Internet chat, the appearance, meaning, and use of the final "z" remains debated.

"LOL" is the signular form, and "LOLZ" is simply the plural.
Meaning "lol's" or more than one "lol".
Adding a lowercase "z" at the end (Proper form, LOLz, or LoLz to switch between capitals and lowercase as is commonly done by a number of prepubescent horny teens, namely girls) does not necessarily add another word to the acronym. Just like if I were to write to you about "STDs", I would not be talking about Sexually Transmitted Disease Succotash, but rather multiple Sexually Transmitted Diseases.

Yeah you get my point...
In leet speak, plurals are generally denoted by a 'z' instead of an 's', so lols becomes lolz.
2. lolz (v.) - A leet corruption of lols
Treating lol as a verb (to lol), the he/she/it conjugation of lol in the present indicative tense is 'lols', (i.e. I lol, we lol, he lols).
Using the leet practice of replacing 's' with 'z', this is corrupted to 'lolz' (I lol, we lol, he lolz)
2a. "N af7r 7h47 he lolz r33lly h4rd"
2b. "And after that he lolz really hard"
