    are there any big 8 bingo’s left in the area surrounding 20855?

  • George

    I bought 23 consective high roller tickets recently and only one had a winner of $15.. Just like the old B.S. Waldorf Maryland never get the big ones and seem to get a lot of trash.. Ticket #14 was a winner. So 13 tickets in a row notta then 8 tickets in a row after the $15 winner, notta.. great odds for whom? Not Me..

    • George: Winning tickets are distributed randomly throughout an entire game. If the average chance of winning a prize is 1:5, this does not mean there is an automatic winner within every five consecutive tickets. There is no pattern as to where winning tickets will occur. Just as the possibility of purchasing a winning ticket exists, it is also possible to buy multiple tickets back-to-back without receiving a winner at all. Like all Lottery games, scratch-off results are purely the luck of the draw and are simply a matter of random chance. In addition, the odds on the back of the ticket are the ‘overall odds,’ which is best described as the ratio of winning tickets to non-winning tickets from all tickets printed for the game.

  • Hi! I’m a regular lottery player… I buy almost lottery games tickets: pick 4, mega, multimatch, powerball , bonus match as well as scratch offs… hoping I would win big in the near future to help my family back home. Could you please tell me where I could find Big Bucks Party Packs. My zip code is 21401. Thanks a lot and more power to MD lottery!!!

  • Teesa

    where will the winner for Ultimate Payday second chance drawing be published?

    • Teesa:
      We are in the process of trying to contact the winner. We will announce the name once the winner is informed.

  • Mark

    If a Person wins an Aluminum Chip case can they also win the grand or second tier prize?

    • Mark: Yes, but the entry that won the Aluminum Chip case would no longer be valid. You may enter as often as you like; however, 1) if you win the Grand Prize, you may not win the 2nd Tier Prize, and 2) no other member of the Grand Prize winner’s immediate family (spouse, child, parent or sibling) living at the same address may be selected as the 2nd Tier Prize winner.

      For more information on this promotion, please check out the official rules.

  • W&P

    I viewed website comments on how many won in different areas of MD mostly the outskirts of MD. A bit of the winng scratchoff’s luck would be nice down in PG county area. I kid you not I manager to get $0 each time. I know me I will keep playing for that $1-20 BIG WIN!!!.in PG county.

  • Any retailers in 21221 or 21220 zip still have any BIG 8 BINGO or HOT STREAK to purchase ? I’ve check several locations with no luck.

    • Annie: We suggest looking for Big 8 Bingo at Rock A Billys, 2103 Old Orems Road 21220. Hot Streak has over 1,200 books throughout the state.

  • Patrice

    High Roller is back—-yea!!. I guess good luck to all:-)

  • Richard Francois

    I sent in at least ten tickets in for the Ultimate Payday second chance drawing.Do I have a good chance at winning?

    • Richard: All second chance drawings are random and we do not know what players will be drawn. However, the more entries you have in any drawing, your chances certainly increase.

  • linda

    the losing tickets for high rollers etc. has a place to sign. don’t you need address etc?


    • linda: Yes, please provide us with your name, address, phone number and e-mail address.

  • t.houston

    I can tell you where to find the HIGH ROLLER scratch-offs if your in the Baltimore city area.

    • t.houston: Send me a specific zip code so we can narrow down a search for you.

  • Mary Ann Slomba

    Is it okay to use printed address labels to send in the envelopes? I have lots of tickets and it is hard to write the lottery address out on each envelope. Thanks.

    • Mary Ann: Yes that is fine. Good luck. Just make sure your envelope size follows the official rules.

  • The trump card scratch off is in alot of the Royal Farm stores. I’ve seen them in the Parkville area. Also the High Roller ticket is in the Farm stores. Hope this helps : )

  • shirley

    I am trying to find out who is still selling Big Bucks Party Packs. Thre a lot of prizes left but all the retailers say that there is no more. I have been alot of places in Maryland.

    • shirley: I need a zip code so we can narrow down a search for you.

  • DeeLuxe

    WOW!!! I’m thrill about another way of winning money, although I never win…LOL I will stop playing soon, cause I will need a part-time job just to play. But I am happy for the lucky winners…send some luck my way…PLEASE!!!

  • Brenda Edwards


    we seem to have very few “big winners” in the oxon hill / livingston rd. area…why?

    • Brenda: The geographic locations of our winners are random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. Please take a look at our press releases from 2009 and 2010. There you’ll see that we have winners from all over the State.

  • Bill Strange

    I have not seen a High Roller scratch ticket here in Frederick since last year. Please encourage retailers to stock them.

    • Bill: High Roller was taken out of retailers for a period of time. With the launch of this promotion, it should be easier to find throughout our network of retailers.

  • Barbara

    Where can i find these tickets these have to be some of the hardest tickets out there to find. I have not seen the trump card one in forever.

  • Lou Gordon

    can i send in more than 1 ticket for several entries in each enveloppe.

  • debbie warren
