Should lotteries have a cooling-off period before paying out jackpots?

In my state, winners aren't required to make a claim the day after the drawing, they have up to 180 days to make their claims unless they are a jackpot winner who want the cash option.  The option to take cash  instead of an annuity is only good for 60 days.  Other states have similar rules that may last up to a year.
