Got this sucker on the way home from work today. Right when I was a bout to give up on this scratcher for a while, I get this whopper.....$500 smackers

When you win $500 how do you receive the money? Do you fill out claim forms?

    No forms under $600. Go to a local retailer and collect the cash.

      Thanks so much!!! I don't see much information on how the winning process goes.

      Now about higher prizes that's where the claims forms come in and they take taxes out right?

      They send you a check for the higher prizes?

        This made the losing at least tolerable.  Two $10 winners.

          Yes, they take all applicable taxes out.  As for sending you a check, I don't know for sure, yet.  But depending on the amount, you go to the regional office and get a check directly when you validate the ticket.

              I have never played the Megaplier or Powerplay.  My wife tells me I should (mostly because she does), but I always think that extra dollar is better spent getting another chance on the JP (even though I know it doesn't increase my odds).  I may try it in the future.  You never know.Cheers

                  Hi Nikki

                   

                  Here is the way it works:

                  Any prize up to $599 can be cashed at any retailer (providing they have that amount of cash). Usually I'll go to a grocery store

                   

                  Any district Lottery office can cut you a check right there for any amount up to $250,000

                  * For prizes above $5,000, the District office will withhold 25% for taxes and cut you a check for the difference.

                   

                  Any amount over $250,000 you have to go to the FL Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee.

                   

                  Good luck! Hopefully all of us will get a chance to go to Tallahassee =)

                      Thanks B$Rizzle!  I just took a look at my state lotto site and our district will cash up to $500,000.

                      Hopefully for the big win I'll get a chance to go to Madison, Wisconsin.
