About the Maryland Lottery

In 1973, the Maryland Lottery kicked off its ticket sales, following its establishment through a public vote.

Over the years, it has introduced numerous sought-after games and celebrated significant wins within the state. Notably, in 2012, a group of three lottery participants secured a staggering Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million.

One distinguishing feature of Maryland is its provision for lottery winners to keep their identity concealed.

The cumulative payout, both in terms of prizes and contributions to the state's endeavors, has reached billions.
