If I win a trip prize package, can I just take cash instead?

No, there is no cash option for the trip prize package.

What if I win a trip package and I'm not able to make the trip?

You can designate a proxy to take the trip on your behalf. At your request, and with the approval of the Iowa Lottery, the necessary arrangements for you to transfer the trip can be made prior to the booking deadline at no additional cost to you. If the need for a Proxy is determined after travel booking arrangements have been made for the original prize winner, the winner will be responsible for all additional expenses incurred for booking travel for the proxy. If you win a VIP trip package, you can get more information from the Lottery on proxies after the drawing.

Does my guest need to be 21 years of age or older?

There is no age restriction for guests.

If I don't take a guest with me or my guest can't go on the trip, am I responsible for the full cost of the trip prize package?

Winners who do not elect to take a guest, or whose guest does not take the trip, are subject to the full prize reporting and withholding.
