What do I do if I win?

If your account has been verified simply proceed to your account and withdraw your winnings. If your account has not been verified you will first need to provide proof of your ID and proof of address. Each winner must be able to prove that they are above the legal age to play in the jurisdiction of their residence. Once this has been confirmed you will be able to withdraw your winnings.

How are the prizes paid ?

To avoid corruption all smaller winnings will be returned to the account where as anything over a £4K limit will be retained until we at One pound Lottery Ltd have made contact with the winning entrants. Winnings will not be paid otherwise.

All winnings across all games will have to be claimed within 60 days.

We do not believe in the practice of “annuity” (the payment of a large prizes over a fixed period of roughly 30 years) as many other sites do. All of our prizes will be paid in full! to the winners nominated account, within 60 days of the winners being verified as a genuine winner by One Pound Lottery Ltd. However some of the official lotteries do practice annuity on their advertised jackpots. Hence we advertise our jackpots based on theirs. Currently the only lottery that we advertise that does this is the US Powerball. To find out more about how they work this out please read below.

However if the jackpot winner wishes to take a cash lump sum they are able to do this. Their decision has to made within 60 days of the draw and can not be changed ! This amount will be lower than the annuity jackpot advertised by One Pound Lottery Ltd .

US powerball annuity.

Graduated annuity paid in 30 yearly instalments. Each annuity payment is 5% higher than in the previous year to adjust for inflation.

The advertised estimated jackpot represents the total payments that would be paid to jackpot winner(s) should they accept the annuity option. This estimate is based on the funds accumulated in the jackpot pool rolled over from prior drawings, expected sales for the next drawing, and market interest rates for the securities that would be used to fund the annuity.

Because the quoted jackpot amount is an annuity of 30 graduated annual payments, its cash value relative to the annuity fluctuates. The actual ratio depends on projected interest rates and other factors. MUSL (Multi-State Lottery Association) starts with the cash value, built from a percentage of sales, and then calculates the advertised jackpot amount from that value, based on the average costs of the three best securities bids.

POWERBALL AND TAXATION

The local tax regulations in Powerball participating states will apply and may vary from state to state.


Tax is imposed on the winner by the federal and (some) state governments of The United States of America.

It is the responsibility of the the player to pay the tax and not www.onepoundlotto.com

Lottery winnings in the US are subject to a Federal tax of 24%. This will be withheld upon winning by the IRS. This is called Federal Withholding.

Even if you live outside of the US expect to pay 24% . The full explanation is that as we at www.onepoundlotto.com are purchasing the physical ticket for you in the US. As such the purchase of the ticket would be treated as if it was purchased in the US and subject to federal tax law .

You may have also read about state tax laws on the US Powerball. There are more details of this in our Powerball FAQ's. Some states do indeed have additional state taxes and also additional income taxes which would class your winnings as earning and subsequently add an additional 13% tax on top of the 24% to put you on a higher earner rate of tax (37%).

There is good news however, as a onepoundlotto.com customer we purchase all of our tickets in the state of Delaware. Delaware is one state that has a 0% state tax on all lottery winnings. This means that regardless of your domicile you will not pay state tax! Even if you live in a US state (like NY) that has a high state tax.

As we also claim the ticket anonymously via a lawyer and/or blind trust there is no additional high earner tax of 13%.

If you are playing from the UK there is more good news!

As the UK does not pay Tax on gambling revenue, as it is not seen as a source of income, it is possible to claim it back. This is well worth doing especially when the tax bill could be running in to hundreds of millions of pounds. Although we at www.onepoundlotto.com can not guarantee or make any promise to you that you would be able to claw back this money from the IRS. We can say this "it has been done before and we have worked with operators who have successfully done this". We will gladly advice you but can not complete this task for you.

If you are living in the US unfortunately you would pay the 24% Federal Withholding.

If you live outside the UK or US we would advise you to refer to your relevant countries tax authority and in the event of a win possibly a lawyer. As there is every possibly you could claim back the Federal Withholding from the IRS.
