  • Some Massachusetts Lottery Regional Offices don’t accept Powerball claims of $100,000 or more if six months or more have passed since the draw date. They are Lawrence, New Bedford, Worcester, and West Springfield. In this case, turn to the Braintree Regional Office or the Dorchester Headquarters.
