  • How to Claim?

    To claim these prizes winners should visit one of the regional offices of Washington’s Lottery before 5 p.m. on the day that their ticket expires.

    The offices, located in Everett, Federal Way, Kennewick, Olympia, Spokane, and Vancouver are open to the public from Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Those lucky enough to possess tickets worth $100,000 or more are advised to call the nearest Lottery office to arrange a secure in-person claim.

    Claim Period

    It is important to note that winners have 180 days from the drawing date to claim their prize. If the ticket is a Scratch ticket the 180-day countdown begins from the last day of ticket sales.

    WOPA

    Per the state’s law any prizes that remain unclaimed after the stipulated period are added to a reserve account. In June each year the reserve account’s surplus is transferred to the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account (WOPA).

    WOPA plays a crucial role in supporting education in Washington State helping college students across the state achieve their dreams and fostering early childhood education programs.

    So if you’ve ever purchased a lottery ticket in Washington now’s the time to rummage through your pockets and drawers. You never know you might be the lucky owner of a golden ticket worth thousands, or even millions!

    Don’t miss out on this chance. Check your tickets now, and you might just start the new year with a significant boost to your bank account!
