State Specific Rules

To play Powerball in Maryland, pick up a playslip from any lottery retailer and select five main numbers and one Powerball. Alternatively, ask the cashier for a Quick Pick or mark the ‘QP’ box on your playslip. The following rules should also be taken into account:

  • You can enter up to 15 consecutive drawings in advance.
  • Ticket sales close approximately one hour before the drawing is due to take place and reopen for the following draw straight after the winning numbers have been confirmed.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age to play, but you must be 21 or older to claim prizes from one of the two casino cashing locations.
  • A state tax of 8.75% – or 7.5% if you are not a Maryland resident – will be taken on all prizes of more than $5,000.

See the How to Play page for more information.

How to Claim Prizes

Prizes up to and including $600 can be claimed from any Maryland Lottery retailer. Winning tickets up to and including $5,000 can be redeemed from any of the lottery’s Cashing Authority Program (XCAP) locations.

For prizes up to and including $25,000 you must claim from the Maryland Lottery’s Customer Resource Center in Baltimore. Its opening hours are 08:30 to 16:30 ET Monday through Friday, although you are advised to arrive no later than 4:15pm so your ticket can be processed in time.

Alternatively, you can claim from the cashier’s windows at Live! Casino in Hanover and MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill. You can claim on any day of the week at any time except between 1:00am and 6:00am. The address of each cashing location can be found in the table below.

Prizes greater than $25,000 must be claimed from the Maryland Lottery’s Baltimore office. Claims can take up to 15 business days to process.

For any prizes of more than $600 you must present valid photo identification, such as a driver’s license or government-issued ID, as well as proof of your social security number. You must be 18 years of age to claim a prize, but you must be at least 21 years old to enter a casino premises.

You can also claim prizes of any value by obtaining a claim form and mailing it along with the signed winning ticket to the Maryland Lottery Customer Resource Center in Baltimore. You will need to include a copy of your photo ID and proof of your social security number for any prizes over $600.

Claiming As a Lottery Pool

Lottery prizes can be split among multiple winners. Each member of your pool needs to complete a claim form and provide the relevant documents described above. If possible, you should all sign the back of the lottery ticket to identify you as shared owners.

Claim Period

You have 182 days from the date of the winning draw to claim any prizes. Any money left unclaimed after this period goes into the Unclaimed Prize Fund, which is used to pay out prizes in future drawings.

Lost and Damaged Tickets

Unsigned lottery tickets are bearer instruments, so whoever is in possession of one can claim a prize with it. Signing the back of your ticket identifies you as the rightful owner, so in the event that it is lost or stolen no one else will be able to use it to claim. If you do lose a signed winning ticket, you should inform the Maryland Lottery as soon as possible. Prizes may not be paid out if a ticket is too damaged to validate, or if it has been altered or tampered with.

Going Public

In Maryland, you can remain anonymous if you win a large Powerball prize. Your place of residence and where you bought the winning ticket may be disclosed, but your name, likeness, and all other information about you will not be made public if you wish. The Maryland Lottery may ask for a statement to release on your behalf, but you will not be expected to fulfil any other media obligations such as press conferences.

Where Does the Money Go?

Lottery games fall under the remit of the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, which is also responsible for all other forms of licensed gaming in the state, including casinos and video lottery terminals. Around 60 percent of the revenue from lottery ticket sales is used to pay out prizes, with a further 27 percent transferred to funds to improve public services. Remaining revenue is used to cover costs and commissions. The table below shows how lottery revenue is split:

Aread of Spending Percentage of Revenue
Prizes 62.0%
Transferred to General Fund 25.0%
Retailer Commissions 7.5%
Administration 3.4%
Contributions to Maryland Stadium Authority 2.1%

After prizes, commissions, and costs have been paid, the majority of the revenue from lottery games is transferred to Maryland’s General Fund for the furtherance of public services in the state. This money is mainly spent in the education, healthcare, and public safety sectors, but some also goes towards social services and natural resources, as well as other smaller state programs. Since it was formed in 1973, the lottery has contributed over $15 billion to the state of Maryland.

A small portion of revenue is transferred to the Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA), which was established in 1986 with the purpose of building and managing high-quality sporting facilities in the state. MSA has since branched out into a range of sectors, and has been involved in the construction and expansion of museums, parks, and convention centers. It is also part of the 21st Century School Buildings Program, which aims to provide new learning environments to public school students in Baltimore, and Project C.O.R.E, a program commissioned by the state’s Department of Housing and Community Development to regenerate Baltimore’s skyline and pave the way for new green spaces and affordable housing.

Maryland Powerball Winners

A couple who chose to remain anonymous claimed Maryland’s biggest ever Powerball prize on December 24th 2011, when they landed a $128 million jackpot. The lucky ticket was bought on Christmas Eve from Wesley’s restaurant in Elkton, Cecil County, after the winner dropped by to pick up a case of beer. “The Mega Millions jackpot was larger,” he said, “but the drawing for Powerball was that evening, so I bought two tickets for that drawing.” The couple found out that they had won the jackpot when they checked their numbers on Christmas Day, making it an unforgettable holiday for them. They did not disclose whether they were taking the lump sum or annuity payments, but they did say they planned to donate some of the money to charity and pay off their debts.

Earlier that year, another couple from Maryland picked up a $108 million Powerball jackpot after matching all the numbers in the September 7th drawing. It was the first Powerball jackpot to be won in the state since it joined the game in January 2010. The winners chose not to disclose their identities to the public, but it was revealed that they were from Abingdon in Harford County and that they bought the winning ticket from a local Wine World outlet. The owner, Elizabeth LaBruto, said: “I’m happy to hear that Maryland sold its first top-tier jackpot ticket, jazzed that it happened in this community and thrilled that Wine World was a part of it.” The store received a $25,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
