Players are responsible for checking the accuracy of tickets before leaving the store, and for determining whether or not a ticket is a winner. If you believe you have won, and the terminal rejects, or a retailer disputes the validity of your prize claim, you may submit your claim directly to the Iowa Lottery for review. All risks of redeeming the ticket remain with the player. Iowa law prohibits the sale of lottery tickets to individuals under 21 years of age.
