Florida lottery winners public record

ATTENTION PLAYERS: All Lottery offices are currently open to the public by appointment only for prizes valued at $600 or more.

Players with prizes valued at $600 or more can be mailed to the nearest Florida Lottery district office. Players with prizes valued at $250,000 or more can be mailed to Florida Lottery Headquarters.

To claim your prize by mail, simply mail the ticket(s) along with a Winner Claim Form and the documentation listed under the “Required Documentation” tab. Tickets mailed to Florida Lottery Headquarters or district offices are processed in approximately 30 – 45 days*.

If a Draw game ticket has been validated by a retailer and the prize was not paid, the envelope and its contents, including the winning ticket, must be postmarked on or before the 30th day after the claim deadline. If the ticket has not been validated by a retailer, the envelope and its contents must be postmarked on or before the claim deadline as detailed under the “Ticket Expiration” section below. If all required documentation is not received by the Lottery by the applicable extended claim date, the prize will be forfeited. All Florida MEGA MILLIONS, POWERBALL, CASH4LIFE, and Fast Play prizes must be claimed in Florida.

For Scratch-Off or Fast Play tickets that have been validated by a retailer, the envelope and its contents, including the winning ticket, must be postmarked on or before the 270th day after the official end of the game. If the Scratch-Off or Fast Play ticket has not been validated by a retailer, the envelope and its contents must be postmarked on or before the 240th day after the official game close. If all required documentation is not received by the Lottery by the applicable extended claim date, the prize will be forfeited.

NOTE: U.S. Postal Service regulations include various restrictions on mailing Lottery tickets. The risk of mailing tickets remains with the player and will not be assumed by the Lottery.

Tickets mailed to the Florida Lottery Headquarters will be processed in the order in which they are received by the claims processing department. Damaged, state owed debt and disputed tickets may take longer.

*Processing timeframes are a general estimate; actual processing time may vary.

Claim appointments are available Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., EST (Pensacola’s hours are 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., CST). The first hour of each day is reserved for players 65 and older and for those with serious underlying medical conditions.

For the safety of our employees and players:

  • In accordance with local ordinances, players must have a face covering to enter.
  • Mandatory health screenings will be conducted in accordance with DOH and CDC guidelines prior to allowing any player into a Lottery office.
  • To limit the number of people in an office at one time, players are asked to attend their claim appointment by themselves unless they require the assistance of another person for medical reasons.

Players with prizes valued at $600 or more can be claimed via secured drop box located inside any Florida Lottery district office.

To claim a prize via drop box, simply place the ticket(s) along with a Winner Claim Form and the documentation listed under the “Required Documentation” tab in an envelope and drop it off at Florida Lottery Headquarters or any district office.

Privacy Act Notice:

Under the Federal Privacy Act, disclosure of a person’s Social Security number is voluntary unless a Federal statute specifically requires such disclosure or allows states to collect the number. For claimants of Florida Lottery prizes valued at $600 or more, disclosure is required by 26 U.S.C. s. 3402 and 26 U.S.C. s. 6109 for tax withholding and reporting purposes. Social Security numbers will also be used to determine whether a claimant owes an outstanding debt to a state agency or child support collected through a court, pursuant to Section 24.115, Florida Statutes.

The deadlines for claiming prizes for Draw, Fast Play, and Scratch-Off games have been extended as follows:

  • Winning Draw game tickets for drawings occurring on or after September 24, 2019, and on or before June 20, 2020, must be claimed on or before the 360th day after the winning drawing.
  • Claimants of winning Draw game tickets for drawings occurring on or after June 21, 2020, and on or before December 17, 2020, will have up to 360 days to claim prizes depending on the draw dates. For each day after June 20, 2020, the 360-day claim period will decrease by one day until the claim period reaches the statutorily required 180 days.

  • Winning Fast Play and Scratch-Off tickets must be claimed on or before the 240th day after the announced end of game for games ending on or after January 22, 2020, and on or before August 1, 2020.

For faster payment, Florida Lottery winners should complete the information on the back of their winning ticket and take it to any retailer for validation. The ticket issued is the only valid receipt for claiming a prize.

FLORIDA LOTT ® , MEGA MILLIONS ® and POWERBALL ® jackpot prizes may be paid in 30 annual installments, and JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY™ jackpot prizes may be paid in 25 annual installments. CASH4LIFE™ Grand Prize and second prize may be paid for the natural life of the winner. Certain Scratch-Off games that offer an annual payment option may be paid in annual installments in accordance with the rule for that game.

FLORIDA LOTTO, MEGA MILLIONS, POWERBALL, JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY, CASH4LIFE and certain Scratch-Off games also offer a Cash Option method of payment – a one-time, lump-sum payment that jackpot winners may choose to receive instead of receiving their winnings in annual payments. Payment may be made by check or by ACH transfer to a bank or brokerage account in the winner’s name; however, the Lottery strongly recommends the ACH transfer method of payment. A winner electing the ACH transfer method of payment must provide the Lottery with a voided check or ACH transfer instructions to a financial institution. FLORIDA LOTTO, MEGA MILLIONS, POWERBALL, JACKPOT TRIPLE PLAY and CASH4LIFE winners who wish to elect the Cash Option method of payment must claim their prizes and make their payment election within 60 days after the winning draw date. If the winner does not elect the Cash Option within 60 days after the winning draw date, the prize will be paid in annual payments.
