Winners of Iowa Lottery prizes must claim their winnings within the designated time frame, typically 365 days from the date of the drawing or the announced end of the game for scratch tickets. Prizes under $600 can be claimed at any Iowa Lottery retailer, while larger prizes must be claimed at an Iowa Lottery office or by mail.

When claiming a prize, winners should sign the back of the ticket and provide identification and proof of their Social Security number. Depending on the prize amount, taxes may be withheld, and winners may need to consult with a tax professional for additional guidance.

Play Responsibly

The Iowa Lottery encourages players to enjoy games responsibly and within their means. The lottery supports responsible gaming initiatives and offers resources for problem gambling prevention and treatment. Players should set limits on their spending and participation, avoid chasing losses, and seek help if they suspect they may have a gambling problem.
