Here's the process for claiming Virginia Lottery prizes.
To claim a prize by mail, complete the form on the back of your ticket, sign it, and send the ticket along with a completed claim form and proof of your Social Security number to:
Virginia Lottery Claims
P.O. Box 1254
Richmond, VA 23218-1254
When claiming prizes over $600 by mail, you must also include a copy of your ID.
Keep a copy of all claim documents for your records.
Here are the taxes withheld from lottery prizes claimed by U.S. citizens or residents.
|Over $5,000||State Tax||4%|
If the winner is not a citizen or resident of the U.S., the Virginia Lottery withholds a greater amount of taxes.
|Over $600||State Tax||4%|
Your winnings must be claimed within 180 days of the draw date.
Keep tickets safe and make sure they are signed so you can prove you own them if they are lost. The Virginia Lottery is not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen tickets.
Powerball, Mega Millions, Cash 4Life, and Pick 3 can be played online or with the Virginia Lottery app. Tickets cannot be purchased by phone or mail.
Lottery winnings are subject to state and federal income taxes. As part of the Virginia Lottery's tax reporting requirements, winners will receive a W2-G form when claiming their prize. The Virginia Lottery will also withhold a percentage of certain lottery winnings.
Lottery tickets must be purchased and redeemed by people aged 18 or older.
You can play Pick 3, Pick 4, CASH POP, Bank a Million, Cash 5, Powerball, Cash4Life, and Mega Millions through the Virginia Lottery.
Lottery winners in Virginia can remain anonymous if they win more than $10 million, as of 2019, but their details must still be made public if they win between $600 and $10 million.
The Virginia Lottery's ticket sales support K-12 education in the state.
Take your signed ticket to any Virginia Lottery retailer if you win a cash prize under $600. Please bring your Social Security card or an official document with your Social Security number to a Lottery customer service center or one of our prize zones if you are winning $600 or more. Besides a photo ID, you'll need a green card if you are not a U.S. citizen. Please put your Social Security number along with your signature on the back of your winning ticket if you want to mail in your prize. Remember, if you want to cash a winning check at Bank of America (our bank), you'll have to show two forms of identification.
Getting started is as simple as creating a free account, depositing at least $10 into your wallet, and then clicking "Play Now" on any game you like.
Deposits can be made either by debit or credit cards, through PayPal, or by ACH transfer from a checking or savings account.
You can play from anywhere in the world with an internet connection, including your phone or tablet. It's easy to use and navigate through our site, so even if this is your first time playing the lottery online, you'll feel comfortable using it from start to finish.
