Maryland Lottery Launches My Lottery Rewards Program [VIDEO]

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Players can redeem eligible scratch-offs for points, prizes

Attention Lottery players! Stop tossing out your non-winning Maryland Lottery scratch-off tickets. Starting June 3, those tickets can turn into prizes, thanks to the My Lottery Rewards program. To participate, players visit mdlottery.com/rewards and register to become a member. They then enter the qualifying, non-winning tickets and accumulate points. Players can visit the Points for Prizes™ online store to view an extensive list of prizes ranging from music downloads, cameras and watches to computers and flat-screen TVs. As a bonus, My Lottery Rewards program members can also access exclusive promotions, exclusive second-chance opportunities and exclusive special offers.

“Offering this added value to Maryland Lottery scratch-off tickets is an innovative way to reward our loyal players,” said John Martin, assistant director for the Lottery. “We hope our scratch-off players take advantage of this program.”

The Maryland Lottery becomes the sixth lottery in the nation to offer the Points for Prizes™ rewards program, following Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina and Tennessee. For more information on the new program, go to mdlottery.com/rewards.

    Richard: The game was developed like that by design. The designers goal was to offer a game with a $2 price point that offered multiple ways to win(10), good overall odds(8.5) with a rolling jackpot (550k starting). In order to achieve this, the game needed to have 2 of the 3 lines randomly generated.

  • mdlottery

    Mike: It means, if you have reached the points threshold, that any eligible, non-winning tickets entered over that threshold will not be reflected in your account. Your account will only begin to accumulate points again when the current calendar month expires.

    However, in the future if there is a promotion or other second chance opportunity and you have reached your points limit, but want to enter the promotion, you can still do so. You just won’t receive the points associated with that ticket, only the entry into the promotion or second chance.

  • mdlottery

    Dawn: All of your eligible ticket entries will earn Points for Prizes points, and you’ll always earn at least the same number of points as the price of the ticket. But, the points you earn VARIES even for the same priced tickets. For instance, $5 tickets could earn anywhere between 5 and 50 points, so you can actually get a whole range of points for tickets even from the same game. The actual number of points you’ve earned is revealed at the time you enter each ticket. It’s almost like playing the scratch-off ticket all over again, except every valid entry wins points!

  • Mike

    shawn -I’ve found that if an eligible game like Ace’s High continues with an error message and you’ve verified that the numbers entered are correct, you may actually have a winning ticket. I’ve found a few winners that I initially missed matching my cards to the winning cards. You can always have a lotto agent/seller scan it to be sure.

    Anthony: 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.

    Although every ball has the same exact chance of coming up per draw, random drawings do occasionally produce unusual results. Because of this, similar numbers, the same numbers, or even what appears to be a pattern or sequence may be drawn from time to time. I assure you, however, that drawings conducted are fair and random.

    Marshella: Love the idea. I will pass this on to our product development and marketing team for future consideration.

  • Brenda Green

    do they have to be recent scratch offs

    • mdlottery

      Brenda: You can click through all of the eligible games here.

  • Mike

    Why is there a 5,000 limit on the points that can be earned per month? At that rate, it will take over a year of simply entering the tickets (regardless of the points assigned) to be eligible for any prizes over 60,000 points.

    • mdlottery

      Mike: To promote responsible play from all of our players we have set the initial limit at 5,000 points per calendar month.

      Once a players reaches their limit, tickets may continue to be entered for any promotions, but points will not be earned. Entries will again receive points when the next calendar month begins.
