Ways to get a cash prize
In case of a long-awaited victory, the money won can be collected in the following ways:
- Small wins, up to two thousand rubles, awarded to winners at points of sale.
- Winnings, the size of which does not exceed 600 thousand rubles can be collected at the Stoloto lottery center.
- Large amounts, more 600 thousand rubles, transferred to the winning player's bank account. List of documents, required for translation, must be submitted to the head office of the company, located in Moscow.
- Also amounts up to 500 thousand rubles can be credited to the Stoloto Wallet.
Regardless of the amount, winners can only receive their winnings after presenting their passport. Term, callable winnings, is no more than six months. If during this period the winner did not collect the funds, then after that he needs to personally contact the central office of Stoloto. The reason for the delay must be valid.
The legislation of the Russian Federation provides for tax withholding in the amount of thirteen percent of the winnings. For non-residents, this amount increases to thirty percent. For prizes over fifteen thousand rubles, tax is charged at the time of its issue. If the amount does not exceed this limit, then the player must pay tax on his own in a mandatory manner.
