Delaware Lottery Retailer Claim Centers can now cash winning tickets up to $2,500

Dover, DE — – As part of a new Retailer Claim Center initiative, select Delaware Lottery retailers can now cash winning tickets up to $2,500. Developed with convenience in mind, players will now be able to cash higher dollar value winning tickets in both the evenings and on weekends at locations throughout the state. Previous policies for prizes $600 to $2,500 were limited to more traditional business hours Monday through Friday at three redemption centers only.

“Previously, retailers could only cash winning tickets up to $599,” said Vernon Kirk, Director of the Delaware Lottery. “We’re excited to make it even easier for players to claim prizes by allowing certain retailers to cash winning tickets of up to $2,500 at Retailer Claim Centers.”

There will be 11 Retailer Claim Centers across the state, with locations in all three counties. Four Retailer Claim Centers will be designated in Kent County, four in New Castle County and three in Sussex County. Validated winning tickets can be paid to players by cash, check, money order, or any combination thereof. To find a Delaware Lottery Retailer Claim Center near you, and to get information on what documentation is required to claim your prize at a new Retailer Claim Center, please visit: delottery.com/Claim-Prizes

Because there’s no record of who purchased a winning ticket, always remember to:

  • Sign the back of your winning ticket
  • Print your name, address and phone number on the back of the ticket
  • Keep your ticket in a safe place until you’re ready to claim it
  • Visit a Delaware Lottery Retailer location or Retailer Claim Center to claim your prize

All prize claims must have a valid physical ticket.

Please talk to your Retailer Claim Center before validating your ticket(s). Once winning tickets are validated, the retailer cannot reverse the transaction.
