  • Pat H.

    I was looking at some of the the scratch off tickets that have a last claim date coming soon and some of them still have a lot of prizes out there. I can’t seem to find any of the tickets at any stores and some have top prizes remaining. Do a lot of the tickets have unclaimed prizes at the end that are never claimed? Some tickets I saw still have $500 winners that haven’t been claimed.

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      Pat H: Most games with a final claiming date have little or no available inventory to be found in our retailers, other games are closed due to no tangible prizes that would constitute leaving them out for sale. And yes, most of those prizes go unclaimed. However, all unclaimed prizes, by order of Maryland state law, need to be awarded back to the players, so we develop numerous promotions during the coarse of the year using the unclaimed prize money as a way of returning the money to the players. Hope that helps answer your question. We appreciate hearing from our players.

    • Natasha

      Can you tell me the current games sold for players Club and Blackjack Tripler?

      • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

        Natasha:
        Players club is 5.6% sold.
        Blackjack Tripler is 72.4%.

      • Natasha

        Where can I find a retailer for winner weather in Gaithersburg, MD?

        • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

          Natasha: Please send me a specific zip code to narrow down a search for you.

    • John

      Pat,
      I had issues with the lottery recalling the Big Bucks Party Pack and the Golden Ticket. Both had grand prizes available with over 90 percent of the tickets sold. One day I went into my favorite lottery retailers and was told that lottery officials recalled the remaining tickets. It doesn’t seem fair to me.

  • Kimberly O

    I have been playing 1313 for 7 years ($1 st/$1bx midday/evening). So far, I have not hit. I researched your (Historical Winning Numbers) and found that 1313 has not hit in 10 years, has only hit 6 times since 1976 and has never come out 1313 in that order. I have put $10,220 into this number…is 13 really that unlucky of a number???

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      Kimberly: It’s not that the numbers are unlucky. Winning numbers have always been – and will continue to be – purely the luck of the draw and a matter of random chance. Numbers drawn for each of the Lottery’s daily drawing games are arbitrary. Every time a ball is drawn, it is an independent and unique event, completely unaffected by what ball was drawn seconds, hours, days, or weeks earlier. In addition, each ball drawn has the same exact chance of being drawn as any other ball in the machine, at any point in time.

      • Natasha

        Can you tell me the perentage sold for Lucky 8′s and Platinum rewards? Also, what top prizes are remaining for both? Thank you

        • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

          Natasha:
          Platinum rewards is 70.1% sold.
          Lucky 8’s is 82.5% sold.

  • Maria Q

    What is the percentage of Platinum Rewards tickets sold?
    Also what is the percentage of luck times 20 sold? thanks!!!

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      Maria Q:
      Platinum Rewards is 69.6% sold.
      Lucky Times 20 is 38.5% sold.

  • LaVada Blue

    I don’t understand how Platinum Rewards continuously remained 65% sold out-month to month. What’s the issue with this game? I’m a buyer of this game and am just wondering why.

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      LaVada: Platinum Rewards is currently at 70%. A number of factors come into play with a games success including price point, ticket quantity, newly launched games, personal preference and more. It’s difficult to pinpoint any one reason.

  • Joseph C

    I appreciate the lottery letting us know how many winning tickets are left and the percentage sold in some of the scratch off games. Why doesn’t the lottery post the total amount of tickets that the game had and how many total tickets are left, not just winning tickets?

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      Joseph C: We are working on many improvements to our website. We’ll add this idea to the list of potential improvements. You can look for these improvements sometime later this summer/early fall.

  • kim

    what is the percentage of set for life sold and is the 1 million winner the second chance or the scratch off

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      Set For Life is currently at 82.7%.

      The Set For Life 2 is a second-chance contest where a player can win $1,000 a week – this can be paid in an annual annuity of 20 equal payments (annuity value is $1,040,000 paid over 20 years) or a “cash” payment option, which will be less than the annual annuity amount. Cash option value will be determined at the time of redemption.

  • http://WindowsInternetExplorer G. Senior

    I would like to know it my question could be answered? In November 2009 on the Liberty Heights corridor at The Shell Gas Station I purchased two $5.oo Bingo scrash off on the 25th and went back to cash them twice and was told the tickets were not cashable. How ever the both have bingo on them, I told the lady at the machine that I purchased the tickets here the day before and they still refused tu cash them. How is this possible? I had her to print the receipt that showed the ticket was not cashable.
    I like to know why this happen and will this or have this happen before. By the way I still have the print out and tickets. Knowing I won’t get a refund due to the time frame. But I would appreciate an explanation as to why this happen?

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      G. Senior: Whenever you or anyone has a problem like this, they should contact the Lottery directly. You can contact us through the main number (410-230-8800) and ask for the Security Division. It’s good that you still have the tickets because Security will be able to look the ticket number up and find out what the problem is. If the final claim date has not passed, you will definitely get paid for it if the ticket is determined to be a winner.

  • J Robert

    What happened with High Roller..it would seem there are a lot of tickets out there yet they are hard to find and don;t seem to be doing well in the sales dept?

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      J Robert: High Roller will be re-introduced on Monday, June 28 as part of a new 2nd chance promotion called The Winning Hand. Stay tuned. Details will be available the day the promotion begins.

  • Deb

    I live in Centreville Md can you tell me where there are any Golden ticket scratch-offs near by?

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      Deb: There is only two weeks left for players to claim their winnings with the Golden Ticket scratch-off. Because of this all books are marked sold out and the system can’t identify what retailers this game is currently at. We apologize for any inconvenience.

  • Dianne

    Has the Deal Or No Deal second chance drawing been held yet? Thanks for any info.

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      Dianne: The second chance contest for Deal or No Deal has occured.

      Seven semi-finalists were selected for a multi-state drawing held in September. Each won $500 and had a chance to win an additional prize in the game finale. The final round of this contest had only one winner, Virginia Cole of Cincinnati, OH, who won $250,000 and entered the contest with an Ohio Lottery Deal or No Deal scratch-off. If you want to read more about Virginia, the Ohio Lottery has information posted on their winner’s row section of their website.

      The second-chance page dedicated to this game and its results is no longer on mdlottery.com, so we’ve included the semi-finalist information below:

      Mike Snukis from Glen Burnie
      James Sharp from Baltimore
      Deborah Speight from Hyattsville
      Melissa Stone from Baltimore
      Lou Silvestri from Baltimore
      Marius Fred Asch Jr. from Baltimore
      Mike Teske from Bowie

  • chon

    I never hear of anyone winning large amounts of money from The Livin Lucky Promotin I know there are $10,000.oo winners but is anyone winning money from the $300.00 worth of scratch off tickets, I mean come on there have been lots of tickets given away and still no big winners, will anyone win the $250,000.00 top prize this game has been going strong for a year now, atleast one person should have scrathed themself to a $250,000.oo win from this internet promotion, this makes me think that the remaining tickets are sitting on a shelf in a warehouse somewhere, and will not be distributed until the later part of July when this game should be coming to a close I mean come on enough is enough this game is lingering on end it, this game should have ended with The Cash Extravaganza., where the even more tickets printed after the first internet promotion, because if so the odds of winning should be different, I don’t see where the tickets have changed, and how many ticketes where produced for this scratch off, and when was it that this scratch off came into circulation, long before last July I know that much already.

  • CHRIS

    can u please tell me the percentage sold of “winter weather”? thanks.

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      Chris: At this time, Winner Weather is 90.1% sold.

      • Brian

        Does 90.1% sold for winner weather mean sold to vendors, or tickets sold to and scratched by the public? Also what is the total # of tickets remaining? Thanks very much

        • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

          Brian: 90% sold refers to “tickets sold to and scratched by the public”.

  • kitty

    Why does the remaining scratch off prize page not have a date when it was last updated? There is place on the page for it but the date is blank. Thanks, Hope I will be there soon to cash in a BIG blessed winner!

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      Kitty: That should not be the case. This information is updated each working day and should be reflected with the date. I have reached out to IT to address the matter.

  • Wayne Larkin

  • Edith J

    Do you ever consider opening just one day for people that have old tickets they forgot to cash.

    • http://marylandlottery.wordpress.com Maryland Lottery

      Edith: As much as we would like to be able to pay out on those prizes, the Lottery is restricted by State law stating that all prizes must be claimed within 182 days.
