How Much Does Prize Indemnity Insurance Cost?

A prize indemnity insurance policy's premium is based on the prize’s value and the statistical odds that someone will actually win the prize. Prize indemnity insurance also protects the prize winner by ensuring that they will actually receive the promised prize because the insurer has committed to pay for it. The policy’s coverage limit equals the insured’s potential loss, which is the value of the prize.

The typical premium for prize indemnity insurance is 3-15% the prize value.
