From prizes of $999 to $4 million, Scratchers are a quick and fun way to win some instant cash. Each game varies in price and method, but all players really need to do is scratch their cards and find out if they are a winner. The higher the cost of a Scratcher, the higher the jackpot.
How to claim your winnings
The Virginia Lottery has simple rules for claiming your winnings. If you have won less than $600, you can claim the money at any lottery retailer, while international players will receive their payouts in their concierge accounts. This can then be drawn immediately or kept for future lottery games.
If you have won more than that amount, you will need to visit a lottery district to claim your money. International players will need to contact the lottery, but all claims must be made within a year of the draw. There are different rules for claiming scratch-offs wins as this must be made within 60 days.
Whether you are playing from overseas or you are a local, you will need to pay federal and state taxes on your winnings.
