Subscriptions for Mega Millions, Powerball, Multi-Match and Cash4Life are available through the Maryland Lottery’s My Lottery Rewards website. You can play your numbers for 13, 26 or 52 weeks and never miss a chance to win big.
Visit My Lottery Rewards to log in or sign up to become a member. Then, click on the “Subscriptions” tab for details. If you want to purchase a subscription and don’t already have a My Lottery Rewards account, creating an account is free and only takes a few minutes.
As a My Lottery Rewards member, you’ll be able to easily keep track of your subscription winnings. Plus, you’ll be able to collect points, buy merchandise and enter special drawings just by entering eligible tickets.
Effective as of August 23, 2021:
- Powerball drawings are held three days a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays) giving you more chances to play and win!
- You can purchase a new add-on feature called Double Play. For an extra $1, your Powerball numbers will be eligible for a second drawing where the top prize is $10 million and payouts on the 2nd through 9th prizes are larger than in the Powerball game!
Your current subscription requires no action. Your current number selections will automatically be played for you three times per week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays) beginning August 23, 2021. If your current subscription runs beyond 8/23, your new subscription end date can be viewed here. Your current subscription is for the Powerball or Powerball with Power Play drawing only and is not eligible to win prizes in Double Play drawings.
Current Powerball subscribers: As of August 23, 2021, there are three drawings a week instead of two. As a result, your subscription end date will change. Click here to view a list of initial end dates and new end dates.
New Powerball subscriptions that include three drawings a week are now available for purchase. You can also begin purchasing new subscriptions that add the Double Play feature. You will not be able to add Double Play to an existing subscription.

How do I purchase a subscription?
All subscription orders must be placed through the Maryland Lottery’s My Lottery Rewards (MLR) program. MLR is a free player-loyalty program that can be accessed on internet-connected computers and on Android and Apple mobile devices. If you do not already have an MLR account, you must first visit the site and create one in order to purchase a subscription.
After signing in to your MLR account, click on the Subscriptions tab, select your game, numbers and options like Power Play or Megaplier to complete the subscription form.
Next, print out your completed form and mail it along with your payment (check or money order, no cash please) to:
Maryland Lottery Subscriptions
1800 Washington Boulevard, Suite 330
Baltimore, MD 21230
When will my subscription be activated?
The subscription form that you send us with your payment has a barcode that we will scan to activate your subscription. Your subscription will be active beginning with the next drawing after we scan the barcode. You will receive an email notifying you when your subscription has been activated. The notification will be sent to the email address that you used when you created your MLR account.
When I purchase a subscription through My Lottery Rewards, will I receive a subscription card by U.S. Mail?
No. All correspondence regarding the subscriptions you purchase through My Lottery Rewards will be done via email. You will receive an email that will include your numbers, rather than a physical subscription card.
How do I renew/extend my subscription?
To renew or extend your subscription, log in to your MLR account and go to the Subscriptions menu. Select the Extend Subscription menu item. Locate the subscription you wish to extend. Click the Extend dropdown to select the number of draws you wish to add. Confirm your selection, print the purchase form and mail it to the address on the form along with your payment (check or money order, no cash please).
What happens when my subscription is about to expire?
You will receive up to two email notifications before your subscription expires, prompting you to extend your subscription. The first will be sent when you have 12 draws remaining. If you have not extended your subscription by the time you reach four draws remaining, you will receive another email notification of your expiration date.
How do I track my prizes?
Sign in to your MLR account and go to the Subscriptions menu in order to view your current subscriptions. Low-tier prize amounts will be displayed in the “Wins Account” section. The “My Results” page will display your prize amounts from all drawings.
How and when will I receive prize payouts from my subscription?
When the prizes in your Wins Account reach or exceed $100, the Lottery will send a check for the full amount to you via U.S. Mail at the address you used when you registered for your MLR account. Checks will typically be printed one business day after your Wins Account reaches the $100 amount.
If you win more than $600 on any drawing, you will receive an email with instructions on how to claim. The email will be sent to the address that is associated with your MLR account.
If the prizes in your Wins Account do not reach $100, you will receive a check for any amount you’ve won when your subscription has expired.
What happens when I win a large amount, or a jackpot?
When you win any prize amount larger than $600, the Lottery will notify you by email and will provide instructions on how to claim your prize. You will need to provide a photo ID and a separate form of identification that shows your Social Security Number/Taxpayer ID Number. Information on the accepted forms of identification is available on the How To Claim page of our website. Call 410-230-8730 or send an email to email@example.com with any questions regarding the claims process.
Can I use the money in my Wins Account to pay for additional subscriptions or to buy items in the MLR website’s Points For Prizes store?
No. Prize money that you win through your subscription can only be paid to you in a check.
Will I receive Rewards points when I purchase a subscription?
No. You receive Rewards points by entering any draw game tickets and non-winning scratch-off tickets into your account, but subscription purchases are not eligible to receive Rewards points.
I’m having trouble registering for a Rewards account or using the Rewards website. How can I get help?
Call the Rewards Player Services line at 1-800-201-0108, or contact Player Services in writing by using the help form on the Rewards website.
If I’m not interested in being a Rewards member, do I still have to purchase my subscription through the Rewards website?
Yes. Using the Rewards website will make managing your subscriptions and tracking your prizes more efficient, both for you and for the Lottery. However, you are not required to participate in any other aspects of the Rewards program.
The Maryland Lottery will NEVER ask you for your social security number or any personal information concerning your subscription or your winnings over the phone. In addition, the Maryland Lottery will NEVER ask you for money in exchange for prizes.
If you receive an unsolicited call, email or social media message from someone claiming to be a Maryland Lottery, Mega Millions, Powerball or Cash4Life employee, do NOT supply them with personal information.
If they ask you to provide your social security number over the phone, or if they ask you for money in exchange for a prize, contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 410-528-8662 immediately.
