    Each pair of $5 tickets you enter gives you one contest entry. If you entered one ticket prior to last week’s drawing, the system would have “banked” it and then paired with the first $5 ticket you entered for this week’s drawing. It’s possible that your 20X The Cash ticket was paired with a leftover ticket from last week, and your Green Doubler ticket won’t give you an entry until it’s paired with another $5 ticket. We aren’t able to view your account from our department, but you can see a history of your entries by logging in to your Rewards account and going to the Drawings and Winners page. For assistance with any matters related to your account, you can call 1-800-201-0108.

    I have scanned several non-winning $5.00 tickets this week, my drawing history still says zero entries???? Am I missing something????

    • mdlottery

      Entries for the $5 Fridays promotion are not cumulative. If you entered tickets before midnight on Wednesday (Feb. 15) those tickets would have given you entries in the drawing that was held on Feb. 16. But they would not give you entries for the upcoming drawing on Feb. 23. Sign in to your Rewards account and go to the Drawings and Winners page. Change the pulldown menu next to Second-Chance Drawings from “Active” to “All” and you’ll see all of your entries for previous drawings.

    I wouldn’t mind hearing from 1 of the Winners on here. Just to see how MUCH they might’ve Won on a Book of Scratch Offs.

    • OldmanMaestro .

      They most likely won a lot of lottery points from those books. The usual of course.

    • Amy

      I work with a girl that won, and she won $255 total from the 60 tickets.

  • Rebecca Ann King

    Good luck everyone

  • Amy

    I entered 3 different $5. Magic Number Bingo tickets, but only one was accepted into the $5 fridays contest, why is that?

    • mdlottery

      The entries for the $5 Fridays promotion are not cumulative. If you entered two of your tickets last week (before 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 25, 2017), they would have given you an entry for the drawing that was held Jan. 26. But that entry would not be carried over into the pool of entries for this week’s drawing, which is scheduled for tomorrow (Feb. 2). If you entered one of your tickets prior to Jan. 26 and the other two after Jan. 26, you should have one entry showing for this week’s drawing. If you aren’t seeing that entry, you can get assistance by calling the Rewards Player Services line at 1-800-201-0108.

  • 410 yO !

    How about the tickets, are they Mailed to your House.. ?

    • mdlottery

      Winners are provided with instructions on how to claim and the tickets are sent to winners in the mail.

      • Ronald Coleman

        I was selected as a winner, however, I never received instructions on how to claim my prize, and I was never informed that I was a winner. I checked the weekly list of winners and happened to notice that my name appeared on the list of winners?

        • mdlottery

          The email with instructions on how to claim just went out this morning. If you don’t see the message in your in box, please check your email’s spam/junk folder to see if it might have ended up there. If you don’t see the message in either place, please call our office at 410-230-8800.

  • mdlottery

    In order to have 7 entries, you would need to enter 14 tickets — 1 entry for every 2 tickets you enter. You get a single entry with 2 tickets.

  • sheenab

    If i want to enter 2 non winning $5 scratch offs,7 times,for the drawing 4 this Friday , does that mean that I will be entered 7 times bettering my chances for this week’s drawing?????

    • mdlottery

      That is correct. If you have a total of 14 non-winning $5 scratch-off tickets and enter all of them this week, you will receive a total of 7 entries in the drawing (one entry for every two tickets you enter). We receive many thousands of entries for our second-chance contests, and the results are purely the luck of the draw. Submitting more entries does not necessarily mean you will win, but from a statistical standpoint, it does give a slight boost to your chances.

  • Ankoor

    $5 Fridays Promotion – Now through February 22 – is this for all $5 dollar scratch off tickets?
    Thank you

    • mdlottery

      Yes, non-winning tickets from all current $5 Maryland Lottery scratch-off games are eligible.

    • John

      How come we can not scan the tickets for this promotion, I had to type in each ticket, please explain , Sincerely, John

      • mdlottery

        We are not aware of any technical problems that would prevent you from scanning tickets with the My Lottery Rewards mobile app. If you are having trouble getting the app to scan your tickets, please contact the Rewards Player Services staff by using the help form at the following link, or by calling 1-800-201-0108.


  • Yitz

    So you can only enter two non-winning $5 tickets per drawing?

    • mdlottery

      You can enter as many pairs of $5 tickets per drawing as you like. Each time you submit two $5 tickets, you will receive one entry. If you enter one ticket this week and another next week, the system will pair them together and give you a $5 Fridays entry for next week’s drawing (after you enter the second ticket). The entries are not cumulative, so each pair of tickets you enter is good only for that week’s drawing.
