Mississippi lottery switching to mail-in claims until further notice
The Mississippi Lottery Corporation announced today due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will switch to mail-in claims for certain prize levels starting Monday, March 23rd until further notice.
For players who have valid prize claims of $600 to $99,999, the MLC is directing them to complete an MLC winner claim form and mail it in with proper identification and the original signed ticket.
Proper forms of ID must verify name, signature, photo, age, and social security number.
If a player has a winning ticket under $600, they may claim at any lottery retailer or mail the signed ticket to MLC headquarters.
Players may also hold their winning ticket until the claim center reopens.
