Do Your Lottery Tickets Expire?

It's something that happens all too often; a lotto player will purchase their tickets and match numbers on the night of the draw, but somehow they will forget to check their tickets.

And many times a lotto players will think to themselves; "Didn't I get a ticket for that draw?" and scramble to find the ticket that they bought weeks or even months ago. But even if they manage to find their winning ticket are they still able to claim their winnings months after the draw took place?

No matter if you win $4 or $4 million, each lottery ticket has an expiry date (take note : that all lotto tickets do expire at some point). If you have not claimed your prize by the time this expiry date rolls around your winnings will be forfeited and will go toward funding a charity or organisation picked by that specific lottery.

But how long do you have before your lottery tickets expire?

Depending on the lottery that you decide to play, each one has a different time frame in which their tickets will expire. For example, USA Powerball tickets all expire 180 days after the draw date, regardless of the amount of the prize.

As the expiration dates on lottery tickets vary from lottery to lottery.

While each lottery has their own date for ticket expiration, most lotteries have over 100 days before they expire. But is there something that lottery players can do to ensure that they don't need to worry about forgetting their tickets, or having to worry about ticket expiration dates? Yes there is!
