Claiming Prizes

The time limit for cashing in scratch off prizes is one year after a game's announced end date. The end date is when sales stop for that particular game. For some games, you can choose annuity payments over a period of time, rather than the cash sum. The method for claiming prizes is the same as for draw games, depending on how much you win.
