Timing of Withdrawal Process

Information on processing times for requesting a withdrawal of winnings from your Michigan Lottery account.

2 minutes to read

All withdrawal requests may remain pending for up to 2 business days (Monday-Friday, excluding holidays) for initial processing. Processing times may vary depending on the selected withdrawal method. For your security, we may contact you during the processing time to upload additional documentation via the Secure Document Upload tool.

Once additional documentation is provided, the document review will take up to 3 business days. If the documentation is sufficient, your withdrawal will be approved. If the documentation is not sufficient, our compliance team will send an additional request to the email associated with your MichiganLottery.com account. All relevant email notifications will be sent from accounting@michiganlottery.com.

Once initial processing is complete and the withdrawal is approved, below are estimated processing times for each withdrawal method:

To ensure prompt completion of your withdrawal, please verify that your personal details and payment method information entered on the website are correct.

Please keep in mind that you are only able to withdraw account winnings and not deposits. This is a security measure used to prevent fraudulent deposit and withdrawal requests. 

If your withdrawal has not been approved or you have not received a follow-up email about the request after 3 business days, please contact Customer Support at 1-844-887-6836.
