Claiming a Prize
A Winner Claim Form and W-9 Form (Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification) must be completed and returned within 48 hours of initial contact. All claims over $600 are checked against records of debts owed to the state pursuant to RCW 67.70.255 and WAC 315-06-125.
NOTE: If the potential winner does not return the completed claim form within 48 hours of initial contact or winner refuses the prize, the winner becomes ineligible for the promotional merchandise prize and an alternate is used. Merchandise prize is non-transferable.
Winners will receive a W-2G from Washington’s Lottery after claim has been processed. The prize claimant remains responsible for any applicable taxes associated with the prize value.
