Step 1. Gather your documents

Winner claim form

All high-tier winners need to submit a claim form with their winning ticket.

Please bring a license, passport, or other form of ID with your name and photo.

Social security card

We will need to see your social security card, a W2, or another government-issued form with your name and full social security number.

Winning ticket

The best part! Your signed winning ticket is the final key to claiming your cash prize! If multiple people sign the ticket, WyoLotto will split the winnings evenly between all parties who sign.

Common questions about winning

Prizes must be claimed by the person who signed the winning ticket. Trusts and other non-person entities cannot claim prizes.

Due to a federal mandate, the Wyoming Lottery will automatically withhold 24% of any prizes $5,000 or over. However, depending on the prize amount and your tax bracket, more federal tax may be required, so winners must investigate their personal tax situation.

We will never share any player information publicly without explicit permission from the winner. Players can choose whether to remain anonymous, to share a small amount of information on WyoLotto’s social media, or to share information with local media for a press release. That said, everyone loves a win, and we want players to feel confident sharing their exciting story with us.
