How to Claim Winnings

To claim prizes, you can take your ticket to a retailer, one of the National Lottery's regional offices, or even mail it in. The exact process and the options you have depend on how much you have won, but it is always a good idea to make sure you sign your entry.

If you play online, it is far simpler to receive your winnings as you will always be notified when you win and in most cases the money will just be transferred into your account.

Eaziwin Games

Eaziwin games allow you to play for big prizes without even having to wait for a draw. You just need to walk into a store or log in to your lottery account and pick a game – you can win in an instant.

There are several options to choose from online and at retailers. The games have different themes and are played in slightly different ways, but it's very easy to take part in all of them.

Lost and Damaged Tickets

Your lottery ticket is the only proof that you have played a game and you'll need it to claim a prize, so make sure to keep it safe. However, if your ticket gets lost or damaged there are still steps you can take if you believe you're a winner.
