Where to Claim Kentucky Lottery Prizes

Congratulations, you've won a Kentucky Lottery prize! What's next?

Sign the back of your winning ticket and keep it somewhere safe. It's a good idea to make a copy or take a clear photo of both sides of the ticket after signing it.

Keep an eye on the clock - you don't want to miss out by letting your ticket expire. Draw game prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the date of the winning draw. Scratch-off prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the game's date of closure.

If you have questions about claiming a prize, you can call the lottery at 502-560-1500.
