Current processing time for claims is seven to nine weeks. Claimants can help minimize claim processing time by following these tips:

  • Watch this short video to ensure you complete your claim form correctly. The number one reason for delays on verified claims is a missing signature.
  • In most cases, the fastest way to claim prizes $600 and over is at a Lottery District Office.
  • For prizes of $599 or less, claim your prize from a Lottery Retailer.
  • If you have questions about your submitted claim, emailing or submitting a contact request will save you time instead of calling.
