Maryland (MD) Lottery Results and Winning Numbers

Maryland was among the first ten U.S. states to establish a modern lottery when the Maryland State Lottery began operations in 1973. State lawmakers witnessed the success of other lotteries in states like New Hampshire and New York and saw it as a reliable source of revenue at a time when it was facing budgetary challenges. There was also significant interest from citizens to participate in a regulated lottery system.

The Maryland Lottery offers in-state draw games, including Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5, Bonus Match 5, Multi-Match, Keno, and Racetrax. Players can also purchase tickets for multi-state draw games Powerball, Mega Millions, and Cash 4 Life. Scratch-Offs and Fast Play games are available for purchase at Maryland’s more than 4,400 Lottery retailers.
