    We have no idea where you bought the ticket, what the game is, what agency issued the scratch off, what state you live in. C'mon, use common sense before posting a question.

    While it depends on the lottery commission, the redemption of a winning ticket varies on the amount won.

    Generally, winnings $100 or less can typically be redeemed at the point of sale (assuming they have the funds on hand).

    Winnings of $100 - $600, could be redeemed at the point of sale if they have the funds on hand... but they'll likely refer you to the regional lottery office.

    Winnings OVER $600 MUST be redeemed through a lottery office, mostly because of tax paperwork.

    Winnings OVER $10,000 may require you to visit the lottery commission's HQ... usually in person.

    SOME lottery commissions may allow you to mail-in your ticket in lieu of redeeming in person. HOWEVER, this seriously varies by location.

    Please check the back of the ticket for redemption instructions, which will likely include an address (& potentially a number) to contact.

    Depends on how much you won. Smaller prizes can be claimed at any lottery retailer location. Larger prizes must be claimed at the lottery head office.

    At least those are the rules where I live. I have no idea of what the rules are at your undisclosed location.

    Usually, if the prize is small, the store where the scratch off was purchased, or other store selling scratch offs for the same lottery. However, if the prize is large, you may need to fill out some paperwork at a state lottery office.
