What Happens if the Arizona Lottery Winnings are Never Claimed?

It’s happened before. In the past year alone, $11.6 million in winnings were never claimed. It’s not all bad news though. If a winning lottery ticket goes unclaimed for more than 180 days, the money is dispersed based on the state’s statute. As for Arizona, the lottery money goes to the following:

  • 30% goes to the Court Appointed Special Advocates program
  • Up to $250,000 goes to the Dual Tribal Enrollment Fund
  •  $835,000 goes to fight internet crimes against children
  • The remaining unclaimed prize money is used to fund prizes for new games
A large amount of hundred-dollar bills won from the Arizona Lottery.
