Maryland Lottery

The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency’s core mission is to generate revenue to support good causes in Maryland, including education, public health, public safety and the environment. Since its inception in 1973, the agency has contributed more than $16 billion in revenue to the State, and Lottery players have won more than $25.6 billion in prizes. To achieve our mission, we provide entertaining games that are run with honesty, integrity and transparency, and give Marylanders 18 years of age and older the chance to win cash and other great prizes.

Pick 3 and Pick 4 have been favorites of many Maryland Lottery players for years. With midday and evening drawings seven days a week, it’s always a great time to play your numbers.

Bonus Match 5 offers players a chance to win up to $50,000 seven nights a week. Players select five numbers from 1 to 39. The Lottery draws five winning numbers and then draws a Bonus Ball from the remaining 34 numbers, providing players with extra chances to win.

Jackpot Games

Jackpot games are the ones that everyone dreams about winning, since they offer some of the largest large cash prizes. With four different games to choose from and drawings six nights a week, players have lots of chances to win.

Mega Millions® is an exciting multi-state jackpot game that more than lives up to its name. That’s because the jackpot begins at $40 million and then has the chance to grow even larger from there if no one matches the five white balls and one gold Mega Ball. Drawings occur every Tuesday and Friday night. Mega Millions tickets cost $2 per game. Mega Millions tickets with Megaplier® cost $3 per game.

Twice a week, Powerball® gives you a chance to play for some powerful cash prizes. This multi-state jackpot game starts at $40 million, and if no one matches the five white balls and one red Powerball, the top prize continues to grow and grow and grow!

Drawings occur every Wednesday and Saturday night. Powerball tickets cost $2 per game. Powerball with Power Play® costs $3 per game.

Multi-Match is Maryland’s very own jackpot game with multiple ways to match and win. Players select the first line of six numbers and automatically receive two more lines of six randomly selected numbers, all for $2. The jackpot starts at $500,000 and goes up from there when no one matches all six balls on a single line. Drawings are every Monday and Thursday night.
