Players have 60 days from the date a winning ticket is validated and claimed to choose the cash or annuity option. Federal (24 percent) and state (5 percent) taxes are mandatorily withheld before the prize is paid. Players' ultimate tax liability may be more or less than the amounts withheld.

Annuity Option: Players will receive prizes in graduated payments over the next 29 years (30 payments), less taxes. The jackpot amount advertised by the Lottery is the annuitized amount.

Prizes over $599 must be, and all lesser prizes may be claimed, at Kansas Lottery headquarters in Topeka. Players must complete a claim form for prizes of $600 or more.

DOES THE LOTTERY SPLIT THE PRIZE MONEY AMONG MEMBERS OF A GROUP?

The remaining group members will need to complete and sign the Multi-Winner form, enabling the Lottery to properly report winnings to the appropriate taxing authorities.  The Lottery must receive the Multi-Winner form by December 31 of the year the prize is claimed. 

PRIZE EXPIRATION:

Draw tickets - Players have 365 days from the drawing date on the ticket to claim a prize.

Instant tickets - see the list of expired instant games to find the expiration date for that game.

WHERE CAN I GET A CLAIM FORM?

These forms are available at Kansas Lottery retailers or at the Lottery office. Be sure to make a copy for personal records. You can also download a claim form in a pdf format.

All prizes of $50 or more claimed at a Kansas Lottery office are subject to the Kansas setoff program. If you owe back taxes, child support or certain other debts, that money will be withheld from the prize amount.

Powerball jackpots start at $20 million. There are 9 ways to win and if you match the first 5 numbers with Power Play, you are guaranteed a $2 million cash prize!

Powerball Play Slip
  1. Ask the store clerk for a Quick Pick (QP) ticket or fill out a play slip. Each play slip has five boards. Each board costs $2. Each board contains two sets of numbers: one set from 1 through 69 and the second set from 1 through 26.
  2. To play a board, pick five numbers from the set of 69 numbers, and one number (the Powerball number) from the set of 26 numbers. Fill in the circle for the numbers you wish to play. Do not use red ink and do not erase. If you make an error, mark the VOID circle, and then make selections on another board.
  3. You may purchase the same boards for up to 15 consecutive draws on one single ticket when you check the appropriate number of draws in the "multi-draw" circle.
  4. You may select QP and have the computer randomly pick the numbers for you. Either mark the QP option on the play slip for up to five boards and your desired multi-draw option or ask the store clerk for a QP ticket for up to 10 boards and your desired multi-draw option.
  5. To multiply any prize won by 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X or 10X** (except for the Match 5 prize and the Jackpot*), mark the Power Play® circle or tell the clerk you want the Power Play® option. This will add an additional cost of $1 for each board played.
  6. Tickets cannot be cancelled after issued. You are responsible for the selection of your numbers and options, not the retailer nor the Lottery.

* The Match 5 prize will NOT be multiplied and will remain at $2 million for a Match 5+0 win when the Power Play® option is purchased as an add-on to the Powerball play. The Jackpot prize is not included in the Power Play® multiplier option.

** The 10X multiplier will only be used when the jackpot is $150 million or less.
