How to Claim Michigan Lottery Prizes

You have one year from the date of the draw to claim a prize. Any prizes left unclaimed after this time will be distributed according to state lottery regulations.

If you've won a prize on the Michigan Lottery, congratulations! Once you're ready to claim your prize, read on to find out how. Depending on the size of the prize, you will be able to do this at authorised retailers or by visiting one of the Michigan State Lottery offices in person.

Prizes up to $600

If you've won a Michigan Lottery prize worth less than $600 you can claim the winnings at any authorized retailer in the state. Simply take your ticket to the retailer, who will validate the win and pay out your prize. Please note that retailers are not legally obliged to pay out lottery prizes, and if they do not hold enough cash on-site, you may not be able to redeem your prize.

Prizes up to $50,000

Prizes up to $50,000 can be claimed at any of the regional Michigan Lottery offices. The offices offer ‘walk-in’ appointments, but to save time, it is advisable to call in advance to make an appointment. Please see below for the contact details of each office.
