How to Collect Prizes

  • All tickets have limited validation periods established by the Ohio Lottery Commission. Present rules call for tickets to be cashed within 180 days of the drawing date, or 180 days from game closing (instant tickets). For all EZPLAY Games, tickets must be cashed within 180 days of purchase.
  • Check your online game ticket’s last day to redeem date with our 180 Day Calculator.
  • As a reminder, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that all information on a ticket is correct. Before leaving a retailer location, check the numbers chosen, bet amount, drawing date, and wager type. If you find a mistake, you must request that it be corrected by the selling retailer before the pools close for that drawing and before leaving the agent location.
  • PICK 3PICK 4 PICK 5  and KENO prizes may be collected the day of the drawing. CLASSIC LOTTOMEGA MILLIONSPOWERBALL and ROLLING CASH 5 prizes may be collected after 6 a.m. the day after the drawing.
  • If you win up to $599, proceed to any retailer location for immediate payment of your prize.
  • If you win between $600 and $5,000, take your winning ticket to a retailer location, where you will receive a Pay to Bearer ticket. At this point, you have two options: Obtain a claim form from the agent retailer, or download here. Follow the instructions carefully. Your retailer will have a list of bank-cashing locations in your area where you may receive payment by presenting proper identification (see below). Please note that the banks currently charge a processing fee of $10 for this service.
  • Proper identification is required. A valid photo identification (i.e. driver’s License) containing the ticket holder’s social security number and current address OR valid photo identification containing current address and the ticket holder’s social security card would fulfill this requirement.
