Livin' Lucky – Validation Pending

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Livin LuckyQ- Why does the $10,000 Livin’ Lucky cash prize drawing state “validation pending?”

A – As the Livin’ Lucky Internet Promotion Official Rules state, winners have 60 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize. Also, winners must present their original Lucky Code. If a winner can not locate their Lucky Code, the Lottery must still allow him/her 60 days to claim. Once the 60 days have passed, an alternate winner will be announced. The $10,000 winner’s name will be announced and posted on the website after the winner claims the prize.

    Hi I was wondering if there is a way to be sure that when you submit codes they are being accepted and registered. The reason I ask is that since the beggining of this promotion I have probably submitted about 500 codes and have not won anything on the second chance. This is a lot of entries and I doubt very many people had as many entries as me. Is there a way to find out how many entries have been registered under my name or email or however you would track it?

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

      Brad: To date we have over 601,000 entries into the Livin’ Lucky 2nd chance contest. Unfortunately, due to the pure volume of entries we are unable to fulfill your request to manually confirm that your entries have been accepted or not.

      We’ve learned a lot since this promotion launched and have taken steps to allow users to track their entries with 2nd chance contests like Ravens Cash Fantasy. Look for more of the same in the future.

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

      Andrew: Initial contact is done via telephone. If that doesn’t work, and an email address is provided, we will try to reach them through email next. If still no response, a certified letter is sent to the address provided. When certified mail is sent, if the person is not home, something will be left there to let them know something is waiting for them at the post office.

  • Matthew

    So if this person can not validate their winnings (can not find their lucky code), then will the drawing be done on exactly the 61st day after the original drawing? If not then when and where will the re-draw date be posted/announced?

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

      Matthew: An alternate winner will be contacted on the 61st day. As soon as it is verified that they have their code and can claim, their info will be posted.
