State lottery moves prizes to Newburgh casino

NEWBURGH TOWN Earlier this year, the New York State Lottery made the decision to permanently close the Fishkill Customer Service Center on March 29, 2024. In order to claim their prizes, customers in the Hudson Valley region who purchased lottery tickets worth less than $250,000 will now need to come to the Resorts World Hudson Valley Casino, located in the former Newburgh Mall.

The two workers at the Fishkill office are looking for new jobs because they were not awarded any prizes.

An official from the lottery informed Mid-Hudson News on Monday that the decision to permanently close the Fishkill office on March 29 was taken earlier in the year. The video operator Resorts World Hudson Valley holds a license. According to the official, lottery claims can be processed at any of these facilities in the state. The reason for the move to the Newburgh casino is that running the branch is more expensive than the declining number of customers that visit the Fishkill location—especially when a more convenient location with longer hours is close by.

Extended hours are available at Resorts World Hudson Valley’s claim center:

10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Sunday: 12 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Here, winners must be at least 21 years old to redeem their prizes.

The official from the lottery also mentioned that claims for jackpot wins, such as those for Mega Millions awards above $500,000 or Powerball winnings exceeding $50,000, will be handled at the Lottery’s Schenectady office.
