Who can claim it?
Prizes must be claimed by a person. A trust or entity cannot claim the prize.
What about taxes?
Due to a federal mandate, the Wyoming Lottery will automatically withhold 24% of any prizes over $5,000. However, depending on the prize amount and your tax bracket, you may be responsible for up to another 14% in taxes and the Wyoming Lottery cannot withhold this for you. (A CPA should be able to tell you what you need to expect to pay in taxes.)
It’s important to celebrate! The lottery was brought to Wyoming for you. The more we can celebrate our winners, the more people realize that Wyoming wins (over 4 million winning tickets sold in our state). And the more players, the more Wyoming gets back!
As a winner, you have the choice on what information you want to share and how we can celebrate you. Pick and choose what you want:
*WyoLotto will never give your contact information to the press or public. If you choose to go public, then any press will reach out to us and we’ll contact you to let you know they are interested. Then you, and only you, get to decide if you want to reach out to them or not.
