Prizes of Over $5,000 & Powerball and Mega Millions PrizesOriginal tickets are required to claim prizes on tickets of any game winning more than $5,000. Also, based on multistate game rules, original winning tickets are still required to claim all Powerball and Mega Millions prizes. The option to claim by mail using photocopied tickets does not apply to winning tickets from these games.
Players who mail in their claims using this new option are advised to retain their original ticket in the event there is an issue with delivery. In addition, the Lottery reserves the right to require an original ticket if there is a question regarding the claim. Winning tickets can only be claimed once, and after a prize is paid on a photocopied ticket, the original is no longer valid for prize payment.
