How To Claim
Jackpot winners must file their claim at Kentucky Lottery Headquarters in Louisville (1011 West Main Street).
The Kentucky Lottery does not offer a subscription service.
Kentucky Lottery proceeds go to college grant, scholarship and literacy programs. These include the popular merit-based KEES scholarship program, as well as the need-based College Access Program (CAP) and Kentucky Tuition Grants (KTG). The Kentucky Lottery has contributed more than $1,000,000,000 for need-based grant and merit-based scholarship programs since 1998. The KLC also contributes $3 million annually to adult literacy development programs and "Read to Achieve," an early childhood reading program. Since its inception in 1989, the Kentucky Lottery has sent more than $3 billion to the Commonwealth. More information about Kentucky Lottery-funded college scholarships and grants can be found at www.gohigherky.com.
Retailer Bonus Structure
There is a standard 5% sales commission and a 1% cashing bonus. If a retailer sells a ticket that wins the Mega Millions jackpot, they will receive 1% of sales in Kentucky during the jackpot run that produced the winning ticket (up to $100,000).
6% state and 25% federal tax is automatically withheld for any prize payment of more than $600.
State Fun Facts
The largest jackpot ever awarded by the Kentucky Lottery was on January 6th, when Rob and Tuesday Anderson of Georgetown won $128.6 million. Kentucky has been participating in multi-state games since January 1991, when the Commonwealth joined the Lotto America game (which later became Powerball).Contact Information
