About the Kentucky Lottery

Kentucky Scenery

The Kentucky Lottery officially launched in November 1988 when citizens voted for their own state lottery. One month later, laws were signed by the Commission and approved by the then Governor Wallace G. Wilkinson.

The very first tickets went on sale in the state on April 4, 1989, and retailers had sold more than $5 million in instant games tickets by the end of the first day. Kentucky joined Powerball in April 1992, followed sometime later by Mega Millions at the beginning of 2010.

Since 1989, the Kentucky Lottery has raised more than $5.2 billion that has gone toward the state's general fund as well as tuition grants and scholarships. To play the Kentucky Lottery, players need to be at least 18 years old.

FAQS

1. Who can play Kentucky Lottery games?

To purchase Kentucky Lottery tickets and claim winnings, you need to be 18 years old or older.


2. How long do I have to claim my Kentucky Lottery winnings?

You have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim your prize.


3. Where do the proceeds from the Kentucky Lottery go?

Besides the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarships (KEES) program and the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA), funds also go toward college access programs and the Kentucky tuition grant.


4. What games can I play in Kentucky?

In Kentucky, you have a varied choice of jackpot and daily lottery games. These include 5 Card Cash, Cash Ball 225, Lucky for Life, Powerball, Mega Millions, Pick 3 (Midday, Evening), and Pick 4 (Midday, Evening).


5. Do I have to pay taxes if I win a Kentucky Lottery prize?

Lottery winnings in Kentucky are subject to both state and federal taxes. However, prizes of $600 or less won't have any taxes withheld and you are not required to claim them on your taxes.

For prizes over $600 but below $5,000, the Kentucky Lottery won't withhold any taxes but they will provide the winner with a W2 tax form where they will have to claim their winnings for tax purposes. Federal and state taxes are withheld for all lottery prizes over the amount of $5,000. You can find out more information in our Tax Information section.


6. If I win a lottery prize, can I keep my identity anonymous?

No. Claim forms in Kentucky are subject to open records requests. However, when the Kentucky Lottery receives such a request, everything but the name of the winner will be blacked out. The Kentucky Lottery will never release your contact details and there is no requirement in Kentucky to do publicity or a news conference after claiming your prize.

We do suggest, however, that you consult with a lawyer before claiming any big lottery winnings, as it may be possible to claim your prize through a trust in order to retain your anonymity.


7. Where and how do I claim my Kentucky Lottery winnings?

You can claim all the winnings under $600 at any licensed retailer in the state. You can also mail your winning ticket along with a claim form to the address below. For all other prizes, you can visit a claim center. For jackpot prizes, you'll need to visit the Kentucky Lottery headquarters.

Before claiming any big lottery prize, we recommend that you consult with a lawyer or financial advisor as they can help you during the claim process.


8. Can I buy lottery tickets in advance?

Yes, you can buy lottery tickets for consecutive draws in advance for some of the lottery games in Kentucky.


9. What happens if I lose or damage my winning lottery ticket?

The Kentucky Lottery can't be held responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen lottery tickets. It's important to remember that lottery tickets are bearer instruments, so you should sign the back of your tickets as soon as you purchase them and then keep them somewhere safe.


10. Can I purchase Kentucky Lottery tickets over the phone, by mail, or online?

It's illegal for the lottery to sell tickets over the phone or through the mail. You need to purchase your lottery tickets from any licensed lottery retailer in the state of Kentucky.

If you are a resident of Kentucky, you can also play Powerball, Mega Millions, Keno, Fast Play, Lucky for Life, Cash Ball 225, Pick 3, Pick 4, and 5 Card Cash online.
