Washington Powerball Jackpot Annuity Payout Schedule for Jan 13, 2021

Media: You may freely use any information on this page, but you must credit usamega.com.

The tax information provided here is based on 2021 federal marginal rates and state tax rates. It shows the final federal and state tax burdens each year, not the amount initially withheld by the lottery.

The Powerball annuity jackpot is awarded according to an annually-increasing rate schedule, which increases the amount of the annuity payment every year. The table below shows the payout schedule for a jackpot of $550,000,000 for a ticket purchased in Washington, including taxes withheld.

Please note, the amounts shown are very close approximations to the amount a jackpot annuity winner would receive from the lottery every year. They are not intended to specify the exact final tax burden, which may vary depending on how the winner chooses to invest or dispense their prize money, as well as deductions claimed.

Washington Powerball Rules

When you play Powerball in Washington, you need to bear these state-specific rules in mind as you select your numbers:

  • You must be at least 18 years old to play.
  • Ticket sales close at 6:45pm Pacific Time (9:45pm Eastern Time) on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with draws taking place at 7:59pm PT (10:59pm ET).
  • You can play the same numbers for up to 10 consecutive draws.
  • There is no state tax on lottery winnings in Washington.

You can claim winnings of $600 or less from any licensed lottery retailer, but for larger amounts you will need to visit a regional office, providing photo ID and your social security card. If you win a prize of $100,000 or more, you should call the office first to make an appointment. If you win a jackpot of over $100 million, you will need to claim it from the lottery headquarters in Olympia.

The table below shows the addresses of the regional Washington Lottery claim centers, including the main office in Olympia:

You can also claim prizes though the mail by sending off your signed ticket. For prizes of $601 and above you will also need to attach a claim form. You must go to a lottery office in person to claim prizes of $100,000 or more. If you are mailing your claim, you can send it to the following address:

Washington Lottery Headquarters
PO Box 43050
Olympia, WA 98504-3050

If you buy your Powerball ticket in Washington, you have 180 days from the date of the drawing to come forward and claim any prize you win. If you win the jackpot, you have 60 days from the date you claim your money to decide whether to take the annuity or the cash. You will automatically receive the annuity if you do not state your preference in this time.

Your Powerball ticket is the only proof that you have played the game, so you will not be able to claim a prize if you lose your entry. You should sign the back of your ticket to prevent anyone else from being able to make a claim. If your ticket has been damaged, you may still be able to claim a prize if it passes the Washington Lottery’s validation requirements and can still be verified as a legitimate winning entry.

You are allowed to claim prizes through legal groups such as trusts or limited liability companies in Washington, but there is no guarantee that this will keep your identity private. Due to the state’s Public Records Act, the Washington Lottery may have to release your name if there is a public records request. If you do not claim your prize through a trust, your name will be disclosed to the public.

When you buy a Powerball ticket in Washington, the money is split a number of different ways so that it benefits a wide range of people. The majority of the revenue, 62.5 percent, is used to pay prizes, but 18.8 percent also goes to the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account (WOPA), which benefits educational programs such as the State Need Grant, the State Work Study program and early learning. Contributions are also made to the General Fund and to the CenturyLink Stadium and exhibition center. The following table shows how all the funds are distributed.

Where The Money Goes? Percentage of Revenue
Prizes 62.5%
WOPA Education 18.8%
Cost of Sales 6.4%
Retailers 5.0%
Stadium and Exhibition Center 1.8%
General Fund 2.5%
Administration 2.1%
Economic Development 0.7%
Gambling Commission 0.1%
Problem Gambling 0.1%

Having joined Powerball in January 2010, Washington had to wait almost five years for its first jackpot winner. Lisa Quam, from Auburn on the outskirts of Seattle, landed $90 million on November 29th 2014, having taken a break from cooking on Thanksgiving Day to pick up a newspaper with the Black Friday ads in it. She decided to buy her first ever Powerball tickets while she was at the Haggen Store on Tapps Parkway, and could not believe her good fortune when she checked the numbers, as she never considered herself to be a lucky person. Lisa and husband Everett announced at their media ceremony that they would both be quitting their jobs with plane company Boeing and had already chosen a new car – a Subaru Forester.
