It is mandatory to double-check your numbers and sign the back of your ticket for authentication.
You can claim your Kentucky Lottery prizes before the deadline, i.e. 180 days from the date of the drawing, else your winnings will be fortified.
Prize claims for any amount can be mailed to the Kentucky Lottery’s prize center.
