  1. Are there still spicey 7’s game anywhere?

  2. Charlene Scott

    I would like to know why it take so long for the daily numbers (Pick3, Pick 4, etc) to hit the computer when the number is drawn before 8. If you go into any lottery retailer , let’s say at 8:30 and ask for a printout, you ‘re told the number is not out yet. With modern technology and almost everything being electronic, why do it take so should hit the retailer and computer at the same time. I have been in a retailer that have gone online to your website to get the numbers when its not available to the terminal yet. Please expalin why is that.

    • Charlene: According to our Drawings Manager, here’s the low-down on why it takes a little while for lottery machines in our retailers to begin paying-out. In the minutes after a drawing there is a very deliberate step-by-step confirmation process involving multiple lottery officials in different locations, all working to guarantee the accuracy of the just-drawn winning numbers. Once all involved agree, the numbers are then entered into the system – another slow, careful process. The goal, of course, is to make sure that there are no mistakes. To make sure that when our players are lucky enough to have correctly matched the winning numbers that they have a pleasant experience cashing their ticket.

  3. Are there still any Platinum Rewards left for sale in 21009, 21028, or 21050 zipcodes? I have been looking everywhere in Harford County! Thanks!

  4. were r the hot tickets sold in zip 20851 please tell…….

  5. Where can I find Player’s Club in the 20770 and 20716 area?

  6. If big 8 bingo is sold out then why is it still listed on the scratch offs remaining page and why has nobody claimed any of the prizes. Also how do you know it’s sold out if you don’t know where they are located during the final claim status.

    • Quahog: Big 8 Bingo is in its final claim period, which is 182 days after the final activation date of remaining tickets to be sold. The final activation date by retailers was 8/13/2010. The final claim date is 2/11/2011. All I can tell you is that it is sold out of our warehouse. We don’t know if all books have been sold out by retailers. It is still on the prizes remaining page and will be until 2/11/2011, which is the date winners have until to claim their prizes, big and small.

  7. Are any Platinum Rewards left for sale in 21047, 21014, or 21015 zipcodes?
    I have been looking everywhere! Thanks! (Fallston BP is sold out).

  8. Also what percentage is platinum rewards sold thanks.

  9. Can u give us a list of all the winter riches 10,000 dollar winners and the 100,000 winners and MOST IMPORTANTLY WHERE THE TICKET WAS BOUGHT. I dont wanna make the mistake off buying a ticket from the same place cause odds are two big winning tickets wont be in the same place.thanks

  10. Hi, I need to find out if I’m wrong about Livin Lucky. Are the tickets I send in from the beginning of the contest still good or I have buy new ones?

  11. Shirley Wheeler

    % Red Hot and Blue 7′s sold. Where can I buy them in area code 20853, 20892, 20852, and 20906

  12. can you tell me where I can purchase big eight bingo tickets around where I live zip code 20850 rockville, or 21776 mt airy, thanks

  13. Where does one find the Platium Rewards in the 21234 area?

  14. When you say that a certain game is, let’s say, 75% sold, does that mean 75% of the printed stock has been sold to the retailers and the lottery commission still has 25% of the printed tickets? or 75% of all printed tickets have been sold to consumers from retailers, meaning all stock is out at the retailers and the lottery commission has none left? My retailer showed me a printout of games he can still ‘buy’ and games that are only ‘cashable’ to him but he can’t get any more of-just trying to make sense of that. Also, I purchased 20 aces and dueces from one retailer and 2 of them were winners however, I tried to cash them in at a different retailer and his machine kept saying “not your pack” and would not let him cash them in…what is that all about? he said I have to go back to where I got them! One more question-I bought a $20 card (it so happened to have been the last one on that roll too) plus many others at a local retailer and when I got to my car, I noticed the security number on the $20 card was already scratched off-I went back inside and brought this to the attention of the late night clerk who was very quick to jump and said since I had left the store, there’s nothing I could do about it-she seemed a bit nervous-this is a new store-and she was very young and it was very late at night-of course the card was not a winner-I won’t buy there again but is there a security department that checks up on issues like that? Thanks!

    • Cheryl:
      Yes, when we give information out like 75% sold then that means that 75% of the ticket have been settled. The other 25% is in a combination of retail locations that have not yet been sold and also some could be still in our warehouse to be shipped to retailers.

      Your 20 ticket of Aces and Deuces sounds like retailer had not activated the book for sale yet. Retailers are instructed to activate the book prior to selling. You should be able to cash at any lottery retailer.

      The $20 ticket you purchased could have been tampered with if indeed your validation code was already scratched. I would be interested in the name of the location that you bought from, also I am also interested in the name of the location where you purchased the Aces and Deuces.

      We try to up hold the integrity of the lottery as best we can, but unfortunately when we have over 4,000 locations it is hard to control all situations. Please be aware we take any kind of incident very serious and will investigate if you supply the information.

      • How can the final claim date for Raise the Stakes have occurred when the website clearly states . If this is the case I want MD lottery to gove me my money back. I would not have purchased tickets that could not be cashed in.
        721 – Raise The Stakes

      • Angela: My mistake. I got my terms confused. Raise the Stakes final activation date has occurred. It is now in final claim status with the final claim date being 4/22/2011.

        My apologies.

  42. I live in 21077-right around the corner from the hot topic item on the ballot today-the slots!! Is there anyplace within 100 miles of me that has Big Bucks Party Pack, 3D Jackpot or World Championship Poker? Yes, I really would travel that far! I have a permanent callous on my finger from ‘scratching’!!

    • nevermind…that post was posted before the 11/5 last day to claim date so responding now, after that date, is not necessary!

    • Cheryl: Unfortunately they are sold out. The final activation date for these games was May 7, 2010. The final claim date was November 5, 2010.

      • I have a questions about final activation dates. I was playing Big Buck Party Packs like crazy. After the final activation, I went to get them (I can name at least 3 different locations) where I went back (sometimes the next day) and was told that a lottery agent picked up the remaining tickets because they were no longer allowed to sell them. I consider this a scam on the public. When you say a game is sold out, I no longer believe you. Books should be sold in their entirety and or there should be a specific location in each county for patrols to purchase these tickets. Please clarify this sore subject for me.

      • Karyn:
        Many things are factored into closing a instant ticket game. Prizes remaining is one factor, although we have sold tickets even though all top prizes have been claimed, we make sure there are still tangible prizes remaining. Inventory remaining is another factor in the decision to close a game, you can’t sell the game if there is no inventory.

        When a decision is made to close a game this is how it happens, Retailers are notified of the last activation date 30 days prior, once the last activation date passes customers have 182 days to cash in all winnings. Retailers may continue to sell the game up until the final claim date or could have the lottery pick up any partial books or full unopened books. The lottery strives to sell through each and every game, but as you can see other factors are involved that may not make this happen all the time. Across all games and price points we average about 97% sell through. Hope this helps.

Since it’s 99% or more sold, how about a post of were the remaining tickets could be found, or even zip codes of area’s they are in? It would be fun just trying to find that “needle in the hay stack !! Any Tickets on the Eastern Shore ??

    • Ed: Because we never know where inventory will be from day to day, we can not publish where scratch-off tickets are available. We can take “search” requests on a case-by-case basis. If you provide a specific zip code, I can try to give you an answer on where to find Hot Streak in your area.
