  • CHARDA

    Is the ravens game for the stubs over with? I need to know before I throw my ticket stubs away.

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

      Charda: The Ravens Cash Fantasy 2nd chance contest is complete. The final drawing took place on February 8th.

  • Treva Boney

    I play the lottery all the time and never win. Me and my husband always play these games and still we never win. It’s okay to play, but you ought to win some of the time. I am for slots here in Maryland because many ofmy friends go to other states to play so why not have them in Maryland. My concern is that it’s people like me and my husband who never win anything. I entered twice and played a lot of times to get the three medals. I wish I could see my name one day on a list.

    • Greg Brady

      This was one groovy MD Lottery Contest. I was hoping I could win so I could take this far out chickey baby on a date.

  • Harold G. Gordon

    Having shared all that you have in emails, a simple reply to my PIA request to provide the control numbers for the top tier winners’ entries would be part of your strict adherance to detail procedures t guarantee the integrity of your results. Even on payouts to pick 3 and pick 4 winners are authenicated by the control numbers. Anything less creates suspicion and lacks accountability.

    Harold

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

      Harold: Can you please clarify what you mean by “control numbers”?

  • Clarence B

    I play Keno a lot.Tell me no the computer generate the lest odds of payout at the start of each game ,depending on the numbers played. I swear it seems that way

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

      Clarence: The systems are independent from each other. Keno winning numbers are selected from an independent random number generator. This has no connection to sales nor the possibility or odds of winning.

    you all are talking about balt. md. winners on this madness thing. the people who win the mega million are all from new york city and they also win the 250,000 dollars. think about that check the mega million on line and see.

  • http://deeleeh@comcast.net David

    I ha ve been playing The Lottery for decades now and I have observed that there are very few big winners on the Eastern Shore .This includes Scratch Offs and all the others like Mega-Millions and Muti-Match. It seems to me that all the winning is left for the ones on the other side of the bridge. Come on now we also spend a lot of money in the lottery over here. Give us a piece of some of the winnings .

  • Hilton-Bey

    Hello all I play every day and participate in evry promotion and haven’t won yet but still trying God bless all the winners…

    • Peter Cheeze

      Medal Madness was a great idea. I hope they do it again.

  • Harold G. Gordon

    I do appreciate the response you provided, but for accountability purposes, the first top tier winners’ tickets shoulde be identified by the control numbers. If i am provided just these numbers and returned my unsigned tickets, this would satify my inquiry. Thanks in advance.

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

      Harold: Every Maryland Lottery drawings are conducted in strict adherence to detailed procedures in order to guarantee the integrity of the results. As we indicated all Medal Madness winners names were on the tickets we selected. In addition, our grand prize winner has already claimed his prize. The Medal Madness promotion generated over 75,000 entries, so as much as we would like to accommodate your request, we simply do not have the time or man power to do so.

  • D Hall

    I bet I had atleast no kidding 50+ entries and not even a meazly prize did I win. I never win these mail ins or web things. Going to stop playing these games all together being they only take our money these days and don’t pay enough back! Bring back the 6-1 odds rather than this foolishness.

    • Anonymous

      I was buying extra lottery numbers hoping to win this promotion. I did not win, but I did box a quick pick that I would not have normaly played.

  • http://MedalMadness Vickie Brandt

    Yes it wasn;t me that won, but congrats to all the winners. It wasn;t alot of winners from Glen Burnie either.

  • FRANCIS E BAPTISTE

    • Harry Palms

      I would have like to see my name on that list of winners. Oh well high 5′s to all the winners.

      • Boomer Chum Lee

        I liked the contest, even though I did not win. I hope they do it again.

  • FRANCIS E BAPTISTE

    i like playing the lottery games let me no the next games ok thank you F- E- B

  • tu pham

    I sent the ticket for Medal Madness on 2/10/10. I think I sent it too early and my envelop was placed on the way in the bottom. By the time for drawing, you did not mix all the envelop well and just picked those envelops on the top. I don’t think it is fair. Am I right?

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

      tu pham: It does not matter when you sent it in. There are strict procedures when it comes to conducting the drawing, including the mixing of the envelopes. The winners who were chosen sent in their entries at all different times throughout the promotion.

    • Kirk Wilson

      I was selected as one of the $1000 winners; only submitted 1 entry back in February. I guess this was pure luck. Now don’t get me wrong when I was living in NC I also submitted over 100 entries to a Second Chance drawing but never got selected. I guess the odds of winning depends on luck…..

  • http://M0zillaFirefox irene bostic

    I have never seen a winner in Montgomery Vlg. me and my whole family bought a slew of tickets just to send them in. It’s a pitty maby we live too far away. Better luck next time.

    • Richard Head

      Great contest. I hope they do it again soon.

    i did play the medal madness even though i didn’t
    win ill try,try,try again and maybe one day ill be surprised like so many other luckey people good blessing to all the winners.

  • http://SNAPSHOP PAUL

    I play alot and I play at several locations in Cecil and Harford Co. I also play several games, out of both counties i only recieved a bronze and a silver. I travel to Baltimore city a couple times a month and one day I recieved all three medals, playing keno. I must say I do win more in the city. I will continue to play I even play in two other states. congrats to the winners. like I always say you have to be at the right placae at the right time…..

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

      Paul: The geographic locations of our winners are random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. Research tells us that more winners come from areas of the State in which more people are playing. Therefore, areas in Maryland with higher populations will more likely produce more winners than lower populated areas.

    • Snow Ball

      I agree Paul, we got dished out a bunch of Kitty Liiter in Cecil and Harford county I got lots of Silver and Bronze, but only one Gold. Baltimore was the Cat’s Meow, you could tell with all the winners there.

  • terry

    Because people are playing the hot five scratch offs that doesn’t mean its money on them. I know the scratch offs are made for people not to win. I should know , I spent to much money on them. Congratulation to the winners! I’m still mad it wasn’t me.

  • terry

    I don’t understand what you are telling Gerald. Spend hundreds of dollars playing all your games, you saying that the odds listed for playing still remains? Wow i guess I need to stop spending my money on this.

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

      Terry: Maybe this will clarify it a bit more. Each individual game has its own odds. Your odds aren’t increased by playing more often. For example, Powerball has its own odds and so do our scratch-off games. Playing them both on the same day or multiple times over the course of a month or year doesn’t increase your odds. Your odds are determined on each individual game. Hope that helps.

  • Harold G. Gordon

    In submitting my entries for the Medal Madness, I copied both sides of all three tickets. I did forget however to physically sign each ticket. I requested the control numbers for the three top tier winners. I wanted to be certain that my three entries were not part of the winning entries.

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

      Harold: The Medal Madness winners list includes all of the names that were selected as winners. All 103 tickets that were drawn as winner’s had the winner’s name and address on them. Therefore, there is no chance that the winning tickets came from someone who did not have their name and address on it.
