Claiming Lottery Prizes

The best way to claim your prize during the COVID-19 outbreak is to mail it to us. Sign and fill out your winning ticket and make a copy of it, front and back, for your records. If the prize is over $600, fill out a Claim Form to submit with your ticket. Be sure to mail your winning ticket before it’s set to expire. Mailed tickets that are postmarked before they are set to expire will be accepted and processed for claims.

Our mailing address is:
  • Claims Department
    PA Lottery
    PO Box 8671
    Harrisburg, PA 17105-8671
