Winners of $599 or More
You must claim at a Colorado Lottery Claim Center in person or you can mail your completed Colorado Lottery Prize Claim Form and signed winning ticket to Colorado Lottery, PO BOX 7, Pueblo, CO 81002. Please allow one to two weeks for processing, and a check will be mailed to you. Incomplete forms may result in a delay.
Splitting your Scratch prize?
If you decide to “split” the prize, one person is designated as the prize recipient, signs the winning Scratch ticket, and distributes the money. All prize winners complete IRS Tax Form 5754 that will dictate how to split certain gambling winnings. If you decide to “split” the prize, you’ll need to provide the names, addresses, social security numbers, and the gross amount to be distributed to each person.
Complete the Colorado Lottery Prize Claim Form. Bring a photo I.D. and your Social Security number, if you have one. Acceptable identification includes: driver’s license, passport, military I.D. card, green card – or any form of government-issued identification with photo.
Before claiming a large prize, it’s always a good idea to seek financial advice.

You may be interviewed by the Colorado Lottery Media Relations team and a press release will be distributed to local media outlets. You may also be asked to participate in a press conference to answer questions directly from reporters. Our Media Relations team will work closely with you to ensure your comfort with the process.
