How to Buy Lottery Tickets in Iowa?
It is necessary to be 21 years or older to purchase tickets at local retailers in Iowa. For those whose intention is to play the multi-state and not the local games, it is also possible to register and play on the online lottery websites we recommend. That would also lower down the minimum legal age to 18 years old – for those who play from outside of Iowa.
How to Claim a Prize in Iowa?
The process of claiming a prize from the Iowa Lottery depends on the winner’s total prize. It is possible to choose how you prefer to claim it once you figure out you are a winner by checking the Iowa Lottery results.
Prizes up to $600 or Free Plays
- Claim at a local retailer.
- Schedule an appointment at a lottery office to claim your prize.
- For prizes up to $99, it is possible to mail the signed ticket to claim it. If you won anything from $100, you need to complete the Winner Claim Form and either the Federal Form W-9 (U.S. citizens) or W-8BEN (non-U.S. citizens).
Prizes above $600 and up to $249,999
