Any deposit of funds, purchase of a ticket, or attempt to deposit funds or purchase a ticket through the Services while physically located outside of New Hampshire is strictly prohibited and may violate state or federal law. You understand and agree that any ticket purchased while physically located outside of New Hampshire is void and that you waive any claim to a prize or any portion of a prize you may have won. If it is determined that you made a deposit or purchased a lottery ticket through the Services while located outside of New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Lottery reserves the right to deem your deposit invalid, purchase invalid, refuse to award a prize, reclaim a prize that has been awarded, terminate your account and refer the matter to law enforcement where applicable.

Geo-Location Technology. The New Hampshire Lottery uses a variety of geo-location technology and methods to verify your location. Any use of software or other methods intended to provide a false location is prohibited and may violate state or federal law. The New Hampshire Lottery does not guarantee that our geo-location technology will verify the location of every person physically located within New Hampshire. If the New Hampshire Lottery is unable to verify that you are physically located within New Hampshire, your access will be blocked and you are prohibited from making deposits or purchasing any iLottery tickets through the Services. The New Hampshire Lottery is not liable for any damages or losses resulting from your inability to access or make a purchase on the Services.

Due to New Hampshire Lottery prize validation requirements, a record confirming your location may be retained for at least 14 months.

 

VII. PURCHASING TICKETS

Purchases. Initiating any purchase through the Services constitutes your consent to deduct the cost of that purchase from your account.

All Sales Are Final. You are solely responsible for ensuring that you have selected the correct iLottery game and all options relating to that game, including, but not limited to, game ticket, number of tickets, price of ticket(s), and numbers played on a ticket or tickets. All sales are final and purchases made in error will not be refunded. The New Hampshire Lottery is not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any error you make in selecting your purchase.

Games Offered. The New Hampshire Lottery does not guarantee that any specific New Hampshire iLottery game will be offered through the Services. The New Hampshire Lottery may limit purchases of any game, ticket, and/or wager on a particular set of numbers at any time and without notice. The New Hampshire Lottery may terminate a game at any time and without notice. The New Hampshire Lottery is not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any purchase limitations or game termination.

Game Disputes. All tickets, transactions, and claims are subject to New Hampshire Lottery rules, regulations, directives, state and federal law, and any prospective changes thereto. Printouts, photographs, screenshots, and other images are not, and will not, be accepted as evidence of a ticket purchase or outcome. The only evidence of a ticket purchase or outcome is the data contained in the New Hampshire Lottery system that passes all security tests, including, but not limited to, verification against third-party systems and transaction history. In questions involving ticket validation, the New Hampshire Lottery Executive Director’s determination is final. In cases of dispute for any reason, the Executive Director may at his or her sole discretion, replace the disputed ticket with an unplayed ticket of equal value or refund the retail price. The Executive Director’s decision to replace or refund a ticket is the purchaser’s exclusive remedy.

 

VIII. CLAIMING PRIZES

  • prizes of $599 or less are automatically deposited into your account;
  • prizes $600 and greater and up to and including $9,999.99 must be claimed through the iLottery portal;
  • prizes of $10,000 and greater must be claimed in person at New Hampshire Lottery headquarters; and
  • annuity prizes must be claimed in person at New Hampshire Lottery headquarters.

Before payment of any prize, the New Hampshire Lottery may require you to provide additional information, provide copies of documents, or appear in person at New Hampshire Lottery headquarters. The New Hampshire Lottery may change available methods for claiming a prize at any time and without notice. If the New Hampshire Lottery suspects any unlawful conduct or violation of these terms, the New Hampshire Lottery may withhold payment of a prize pending completion of an investigation. You agree to cooperate with the New Hampshire Lottery in any investigation. The New Hampshire Lottery does not guarantee payment of a prize within any specific period of time. The New Hampshire Lottery is not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any delay in payment of a prize.

Online Claim Form. You may be required to complete an online claim form to claim a prize of $600 and up to $9,999.99. By checking the boxes on this form, you represent and warrant that: you are the registered user of the account; your account information is accurate; and you accept the New Hampshire Lottery claim policy. You further certify that you: are a U.S. citizen; have provided your correct social security number; are not subject to backup withholding; and are not subject to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). You understand and agree that checking these boxes constitutes your electronic signature.

Backup Withholding. Backup withholding refers to the process by which a person or entity making payments to you must, under certain conditions, withhold and pay a percentage of such payments to the IRS. Your prize may be subject to backup withholding if you do not provide your correct social security number to us, you do not certify your social security number when required, the IRS notifies the New Hampshire Lottery that you furnished an incorrect social security number, the IRS notifies you that you are subject to backup withholding because you did not report all of your interest and dividends on your tax return, or you do not certify to us that you are not subject to backup withholding. For more information, please visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov.

Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). The FATCA requires U.S. taxpayers to report certain foreign financial accounts and offshore assets. It also requires certain foreign financial institutions to report all U.S. account holders who are specified U.S. citizens. To learn if you own foreign financial assets subject to the FATCA or if you qualify for an exemption from the FATCA, please refer to the IRS website at www.irs.gov. Withholding is the cost of not reporting.

Claiming in Person. If you are required to claim a prize in person at New Hampshire Lottery headquarters, you will be required to provide a valid government issued picture identification and proof of your social security number in conformance with NH Admin Rules SW 602.02-03. The New Hampshire Lottery may deposit a prize won through the Services into your account even if the prize was claimed in person. To verify you are presenting acceptable identification please call 1-866-204-6954.

Tax Obligations. A lottery prize is considered income and a taxable event when claimed or received. The New Hampshire Lottery reports all prizes of $600 and greater to the IRS. A Form W-2G is generated for all prizes of $600 and greater and made available to you through your account. The New Hampshire Lottery is required to withhold federal tax from all prizes over $5,000. These withholdings are estimates only and do not necessarily satisfy the tax liability. It is your responsibility to immediately inform the New Hampshire Lottery if you believe there is an error in reporting or withholding. You are solely responsible for properly reporting and paying your applicable federal taxes. The New Hampshire Lottery is not liable for any damages or losses resulting from your failure to properly report or pay any federal taxes.

iLottery Winnings Intercept. Before paying any prize of $600 or greater, state law requires the New Hampshire Lottery to check for child support arrearages. If any such debts exist, the New Hampshire Lottery is legally required to offset your prize by the amount of the debt. If you believe that prize money was withheld for a debt that has already been paid, it is your responsibility to contact the agency reporting the debt and seek reimbursement. We are not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any offset from a prize for payment of a debt.

Claim Errors. An iLottery claim may not be premised on human or electronic error in the communication, display, or transmission of data regardless of how that data is recorded, displayed, or transmitted. A claim may not be premised on any intentional human, electronic, or other form of communication or transmission that was not authorized by the New Hampshire Lottery. The New Hampshire Lottery is not liable for any damages or losses resulting from any erroneous or unauthorized communication, display, or transmission of data.

Failure to Claim a Prize. A prize must be claimed within 366 days of the date that it was won. Any prize that is not claimed within 366 days will be deemed unclaimed and disposed of in accordance with state law. It is your responsibility to properly claim your prize within 366 days. The New Hampshire Lottery is not liable for any damages or losses resulting from your failure to properly claim your prize.

 

IX. WITHDRAWING PRIZES

 

Prize Withdrawals Only. You may withdraw prizes in your account. You may not withdraw deposits that you have made into your account unless required by law. It is your sole responsibility to not deposit more than you intend to use.

Withdraw Methods. Prizes may be withdrawn by bank transfer, bank draft, or other method the New Hampshire Lottery approves. You may initiate a withdrawal through your iLottery account or by calling 1-866-204-6954. By initiating a withdrawal, you consent to the New Hampshire Lottery: deducting the withdrawal amount from your account; retaining any amount owed to the New Hampshire Lottery under these terms; and sharing your personal information with any third parties the New Hampshire Lottery uses to process your request. The New Hampshire Lottery is not required to use any specific method, bank, or payment processor that you identify.
