  1. Hello just sent off a lot of trump for 2nd chance and I put them in the traditional (long envelope it is hard to close in the small one will my tickets be accepted. If not will they send them back just wondering . I couldn’t open up rules my computer won’t let me get adobe

  2. I don’t follow baseball all that well. Has there been ant home runs at home for the Orioles?

    • Mark: An Orioles player has not hit the Hit It Here sign yet. We are holding out hope. A Blue Jays player hit it on July 17 so we know it can be done. Unfortunately, the rules require an Orioles player to hit the sign.

  3. Lottery Person:

    I have soooooo many Livin Lucky Stubs. I have entered many at one sitting. However, i have found a couple of stubs at the bottom of my purse and i’m not sure if they were entered, so i entered them anyway. My question is what happens if you inadvertently enter the same stub “TWICE”? Does it get counted at all and/or does your system boot it out all together leaving a person with no entry at all?

  4. I play ar least 2 of the 5 dollar bingos ecery day as of this date I have only won 5 bucks on them, if the little box upper left gets a line filled out you know for sure you are not going to win, should not at least one or two in a pack have a winner in them, they are horrible but I like them.

    • I have about 100 tickets here for the Living Lucky are they still good? Also even though I bought them when it first came out are they still in the pot? Sure would have fun scratching off tickets if I won them.

      • charlotte: Yes, your codes are still valid. Every two weeks we draw 6 names for $300 worth of Livin’ Lucky scratch-offs and every 10% sold we giveaway $10,000. We’ll culminate the promotion with a $100,000 giveaway when the ticket sells out. In order to claim your prize, if your name is drawn, you will need to present your Livin’ Lucky stub.

  5. when i enter the code for livin lucky all my infor was send in but when one of the code won300 . no one call or email me at all by the time i know i win it too late to cash the price. that suck….

  6. Why does it take so long to show the list of winners in the biweekly livin’ lucky scratch off drawing?

  7. I often hear other players being told numbers like 1010 or 777 are “SOLD OUT”. So what determines when a particular number is “SOLD OUT”? And how much can an individual play on a 3 digit or 4 digit bet I’ve often been in the line and heard other players put as much as $50 to $100 or even more on a 3 digit or 4 digit bet.

    • Bee Jay: Common number combination’s, such as years or special sequences of numbers often ‘sell-out.’ This is typically when a lot of players are playing one of these combination’s. Several number sets ‘sell-out’ for almost every drawing.

      Typical payouts for these types of popular combination’s are quite high, and often surpass the amount of money taken in from each drawing. For instance, on March 24th, we took in $424,000 in sales, but paid out $7 million when 1212 hit that evening. On these occasions, the players playing these combination’s really have a reason to celebrate!

      Every day, regardless of result, the goal of the Lottery remains the same – to raise revenue while providing entertaining gaming experiences. To achieve both of these goals, a $7 million dollar liability limit is in place. Once a number has sold to that potential payout, it is no longer available for wagering or ‘sold out.’ That limit allows the Lottery to continue to produce revenue for the State and fund the prizes that make the games interesting and exciting.

  8. So Lottery Person–i did not get a response to my question and concerns:

    since i first began entering my Livin Lucky Code numbers ALL of my contact information has changed and i no longer have a home e-mail address. So now what is a person in my situation suppose to do? I do have access to the internet via my job and could at check the winning “CODE NUMBERS” from time to time if they were published.

    I understand you cannot publish the name of the $10,000 Livin Luckey winner, But WHY can’t you AT LEAST PUBLISH THE “CODE NUMBER” of the $10,000 Livin Lucky Winner that way people will be able to check their own ticket stub instead of totally relying on the Lottery to do it for them. Like i said, my contact information has totally changed since i began entering my code numbers, therefor you cannot contact me if my code number is chosen using OLD OUTDATED INFORMATION. And that is NOT FAIR–AT ALL, not only to me but to everyone else whose information has changed………”IT COULD BE ME” or “THEM”!

    • Rahjae:
      Thanks for writing in. We haven’t had any problems with contacting players to for this promotion to date. However, you make a good point and I talked it over with our drawing official. We’ll begin making the codes for the $10,000 prizes available on the CASH PRIZES page when the next drawing takes place.

  9. Roz Stavisky

    What envelope sizes are acceptable?

  10. donald fake 3rd

    i just recently sent in more then 25 entries for the winning hand promotion but i forgot to sign the tickets does that mean im not in the contest

  11. Well you could at least publish the “CODE” number just in case you are unable to reach the $10,000 Livin Lucky winner because my address and telephone number and e-mail number has changed since i first began entering my Livin Lucky Code numbers, then again i i no longer have a home e-mail address. So now what is a person in my situation suppose to do, the winner could be me. I do have access to the internet via my job and could at check the winning “CODE NUMBERS” from time to time.

    Okay, so don’t publish the name, but AT LEAST PUBLISH THE “CODE NUMBER” of the $10,000 Livin Lucky Winner.

  12. I am talking about the $10,000 Livin Lucky Winner. I think the name and the stub number of the winner should be posted that way a person can go online and look to see if the $10,000 is them. After all you post the stub number, name and city for the $300 worth of Livin Lucky scratch-offs, so the same should be done for the $10,000 cash prize.

    “why isn’t the $10,000 dollar winner’s name published? It could be me and i would’nt even know it. You know people change their address, e-mail and telephone number from time to time…Soooooooooo how is one suppose to know if the $10,000 winner them?”

    • Rahjae: The Lottery contacts all winners via telephone, e-mail and/or mail. Since it is a large prize, we do not publish the $10,000 prize winner’s names until they are confirmed as the winner. To be confirmed, the winner must provide the stub to claim the prize, and if they do not have the stub, an alternate is chosen and contacted. We realize contact information does change that is why we ask for multiple forms of contact information.

  13. Hello MdLottery, A co-worker of mines went to Georgia and brought me back a lottery scratch off scratcher. It’s a little thing that fits on my key chain so if I go to buy scratch off I wont have to use change or my fingernail…lol. I was wondering if Maryland State Lottery has a scratcher for scratch offs. I would like to have one with MDLottery on it, can you tell me where to get one?

    • charda: We currently are not producing a promotional item like this. However, check back later this summer/fall when a certain football themed scratch-off launches. 😉

    • carol: Thanks for writing in. We appreciate hearing from our players.

      You are not the only one that feels this way. Players in Baltimore City feel all the winners are outside the city. Players outside of Baltimore believe all of the winners are inside the city. The truth is, geographic locations of our winners are random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. However, research tells us that more winners come from areas of the State in which more people are playing. Therefore, areas in Maryland with higher populations will more likely produce more winners than lower populated areas.

      Feel free to search our blog for winners. There you will see we have winners from all over the State.

      Good luck in the future.

  17. why isn’t the $10,000 dollar winner’s name isn’t published? It could be me and i would’nt even know it. You know people change their address, e-mail and telephone number from time to time…Soooooooooo how is one suppose to know if the $10,000 winner them?

  18. Were can I find Big 8 Bingo in 21206 or 21239

    • Ronnie F: You can try D&M Liquors, First Stop Convenience Store, Hams Liquors and Sun Liquors. All appear to have books, but need encouragement to have them activated so feel free to ask them.

  19. joe huntley


  20. Are there any more Big Buck Party Paks in 21207 area. I brought out all the location Iknew of in the city and the surrounding areas.If there is none left in that area, can you please give me the store names for the surrounding areas!

  21. 1) can i hand delivery my cash for life 2 entries?
    2) I got like 8 C’s and 2 A’s but no S or H’s are the letters evenly distributed or are there more of some letters?


  22. are there any big 8 bingo’s left in the area surrounding 20855?

  23. I bought 23 consective high roller tickets recently and only one had a winner of $15.. Just like the old B.S. Waldorf Maryland never get the big ones and seem to get a lot of trash.. Ticket #14 was a winner. So 13 tickets in a row notta then 8 tickets in a row after the $15 winner, notta.. great odds for whom? Not Me..

    • George: Winning tickets are distributed randomly throughout an entire game. If the average chance of winning a prize is 1:5, this does not mean there is an automatic winner within every five consecutive tickets. There is no pattern as to where winning tickets will occur. Just as the possibility of purchasing a winning ticket exists, it is also possible to buy multiple tickets back-to-back without receiving a winner at all. Like all Lottery games, scratch-off results are purely the luck of the draw and are simply a matter of random chance. In addition, the odds on the back of the ticket are the ‘overall odds,’ which is best described as the ratio of winning tickets to non-winning tickets from all tickets printed for the game.

  24. Hi! I’m a regular lottery player… I buy almost lottery games tickets: pick 4, mega, multimatch, powerball , bonus match as well as scratch offs… hoping I would win big in the near future to help my family back home. Could you please tell me where I could find Big Bucks Party Packs. My zip code is 21401. Thanks a lot and more power to MD lottery!!!

  25. where will the winner for Ultimate Payday second chance drawing be published?

  26. If a Person wins an Aluminum Chip case can they also win the grand or second tier prize?

    • Mark: Yes, but the entry that won the Aluminum Chip case would no longer be valid. You may enter as often as you like; however, 1) if you win the Grand Prize, you may not win the 2nd Tier Prize, and 2) no other member of the Grand Prize winner’s immediate family (spouse, child, parent or sibling) living at the same address may be selected as the 2nd Tier Prize winner.

      For more information on this promotion, please check out the official rules.

  27. I viewed website comments on how many won in different areas of MD mostly the outskirts of MD. A bit of the winng scratchoff’s luck would be nice down in PG county area. I kid you not I manager to get $0 each time. I know me I will keep playing for that $1-20 BIG WIN!!!.in PG county.

  28. Any retailers in 21221 or 21220 zip still have any BIG 8 BINGO or HOT STREAK to purchase ? I’ve check several locations with no luck.

  29. High Roller is back—-yea!!. I guess good luck to all:-)

  30. Richard Francois

    I sent in at least ten tickets in for the Ultimate Payday second chance drawing.Do I have a good chance at winning?

    • Richard: All second chance drawings are random and we do not know what players will be drawn. However, the more entries you have in any drawing, your chances certainly increase.

  31. the losing tickets for high rollers etc. has a place to sign. don’t you need address etc?


  32. I can tell you where to find the HIGH ROLLER scratch-offs if your in the Baltimore city area.

  33. Mary Ann Slomba

    Is it okay to use printed address labels to send in the envelopes? I have lots of tickets and it is hard to write the lottery address out on each envelope. Thanks.

  34. The trump card scratch off is in alot of the Royal Farm stores. I’ve seen them in the Parkville area. Also the High Roller ticket is in the Farm stores. Hope this helps : )

  35. I am trying to find out who is still selling Big Bucks Party Packs. Thre a lot of prizes left but all the retailers say that there is no more. I have been alot of places in Maryland.

  36. WOW!!! I’m thrill about another way of winning money, although I never win…LOL I will stop playing soon, cause I will need a part-time job just to play. But I am happy for the lucky winners…send some luck my way…PLEASE!!!

  37. Brenda Edwards


    we seem to have very few “big winners” in the oxon hill / livingston rd. area…why?

    • Brenda: The geographic locations of our winners are random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. Please take a look at our press releases from 2009 and 2010. There you’ll see that we have winners from all over the State.

  38. Bill Strange

    I have not seen a High Roller scratch ticket here in Frederick since last year. Please encourage retailers to stock them.

    • Bill: High Roller was taken out of retailers for a period of time. With the launch of this promotion, it should be easier to find throughout our network of retailers.

  39. Where can i find these tickets these have to be some of the hardest tickets out there to find. I have not seen the trump card one in forever.

  40. can i send in more than 1 ticket for several entries in each enveloppe.
