COVID-19 Update




To help ensure the safety of all during the COVID-19 pandemic, winning tickets above $600 must be mailed in or claimed at a later date. If you have a winning ticket:

  • Sign the back and keep it in a safe place.

  • Prizes of $600 and less can be cashed at Missouri Lottery retail locations, though some retailers may have limited store hours and/or less cash on hand during this time.

  • When redeeming by mail, winning tickets of any amount should be mailed, along with a completed claim form, to:

    Ticket Redemption
    Missouri Lottery
    P.O. Box 7777
    Jefferson City, MO 65102-7777


  • Or, you may hold on to your ticket and visit a Lottery office at a later date.

    PLEASE NOTE ticket expiration dates.
    Draw Games tickets expire 180 days after the draw date on the ticket’s last winning play.
    Expiration dates for Scratchers games can be found here:  http://www.molottery.com/scratchers.do



While we are a state agency entrusted to help fund education through sales of Lottery games, we also have a responsibility to our many players and retailers. That’s why we want to share with you some of the ways we are working to help minimize the impact of COVID-19.

  • Per CDC guidelines discouraging groups of greater than 10 people from gathering, fraternal organizations have been requested to discontinue Pull-Tabs sales from self-service dispensers until further notice.

  • All Lottery retail locations are being personally reminded to practice frequent disinfection of Lottery terminals, vending machines and other lottery equipment.



The Missouri Lottery is proud to partner with each of these and many other events each year. We understand that the safety of our community is tantamount and, while we will be losing or postponing many assets associated with each sponsorship, we acknowledge and appreciate the difficulty in making these tough decisions.  We are continuing to work with these organizations to reschedule events where applicable. 

The following have been postponed or cancelled:

  • GO! St. Louis Race and Expo for 2020 - Cancelled

  • KC Toughest Monster Truck Tour 2020 - Cancelled

  • Ozarks BBQ Fest (Springfield) - Postponed until June of 2020

  • St. Louis Cardinals Opening Day Rally - Postponed until MLB decision

  • KC Mavericks have cancelled remainder of current season

  • Springfield Cardinals have postponed their season in accordance with CDC and MLB guidelines

  • St Louis Blues hockey season has been postponed until league decision


We’re all in this together, and we thank everyone for working to keep our fellow Missourians safe during these uncharted and challenging times.
