How to Claim Prizes & Claim Centers

Are you among the latest winners of the New York Lotto? Now’s the time to claim your winnings, so let’s discuss the next steps.

The first thing to ensure is that your ticket is present and undamaged. You need the original to claim your prize, so store it somewhere safe. Sign the back with your full name, phone number, and address for protection. Note that winning tickets expire a year after the draw.

The process is straightforward for prizes of $600 or less. Claim them in person at any licensed lottery retailer in New York. You can also mail the ticket or call the Lottery’s customer service line at (518) 388-3370.

Prizes over $600 require identity verification. You must provide the ticket, a valid ID and social security number, and a completed Winner Claim form.

When it comes to claiming locations, higher prize winners also have several options. Visit a local Prize Claim Center or the Lottery’s Customer Service. You can also mail the ticket to the Lottery.

The Customer Service centers require an appointment, which you can schedule online. Those who decide to mail their tickets should send them to this address:

Federal Income Tax on Winnings The tax for lottery winnings at the Federal level is 24%. It applies to all prizes over $5,000.
Non-US Citizens Tax Rate Non-US residents who win the national lottery are subject to Federal and state taxes. They pay 38.8% in total taxes.

History of the Largest New York Lottery Prior Winners

Johnnie Taylor’s Mega Millions

The latest Mega Millions win came in 2013. The $253 million prize was the 13th largest Mega Millions win in history. Johnnie Taylor, a lucky New Yorker from Queens, claimed it in April and opted to receive a lump sum. Remarkably, lightning struck twice in this month. Another New Yorker seized a $20 million bounty from the next Mega Millions draw.

Anonymous Millionaires

In September 2021, a single ticket was sold at a Pronto Pizza place. It was a lucky one, too, as it matched all six numbers on that day’s lottery. The prize was $315 million, claimed by a group known as Goodtimez, LLC. We don’t know the identities of the winners themselves. We do know that opportunity awaits at every step, even while getting a snack.

Costco’s Lottery Club

New York enabled Powerball in 2010. The following year, Costco employees teamed up to try their luck. They took only a month to land a jackpot of over $200 million. Their group consisted of 20 people aged from 24 to 73. Powerball rules state that prizes can be split among ten people tops. In response, the employees founded a trust. The organization received the money, and each member got an equal share.

Windfall Sparking Philanthropy

Richard and Mary Morrison hit a Mega Millions jackpot in December 2009. They opted for a lump sum, claiming $102 million to be used to open a seafood restaurant. The rest would go towards helping disadvantaged children. This reward meant a lot to the Morrisons. They’ve since established a foundation that funds non-profit educational institutions.

From Rags to Riches

Juan Rodriguez got U.S. citizenship in 1986, but life wasn’t easy for him. He’d been bankrupt till the early 2000s, with 78 cents in his savings and a $44,000 loan. In 2004, Rodriguez had a stint as the biggest winner of the New York Lottery. He matched the line on Mega Millions, winning $149 million.
