Congratulations On Winning!
As per the rules by Massachusetts Lottery, your original winning ticket is the only valid receipt for prize claims.
Your lottery ticket is a bearer instrument, which means anyone who possesses the ticket is the winner.
It is mandatory to double-check your numbers and sign the back of your ticket for authentication.
You can claim your Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts Lottery’s prize center.
If you are mailing your winning ticket, it is mandatory to complete the claim form and attach a copy of your signed government-issued ID card (including driver's license, U.S. passport, passport issued by a foreign government, social security number, etc.) and send it all.
Before mailing the winning ticket, ensure you possess a photocopy of all the documents, including claim form and the winning ticket for a valid proof.
The lottery authorities are not responsible for mail, tickets, or claim forms that are late, damaged, misdirected, misaddressed, incomplete, or illegible.
