News Release, Maryland Lottery
My Lottery Rewards members can now earn free draw game tickets and discounts on Lottery purchases
The Maryland Lottery’s free player loyalty program, My Lottery Rewards, added new benefits for our members on December 1. Special achievements and promotions will offer players an opportunity to earn coupons when they enter eligible tickets into their Rewards account.
When a coupon is awarded, members will be able to access it by going to the My Account section and then looking in their Rewards History. Players have a minimum of 182 days to redeem their coupons earned. If players use the My Lottery Rewards app on the Android phone or iPhone, coupons can be redeemed by scanning the bar code from the phone’s screen at any Maryland Lottery self-service vending machine or having any Maryland Lottery retailer scan it at the register. Rewards
Members who access their accounts on a computer will need to print coupons and take them to a Lottery self-service vending machine or to any Maryland Lottery retailer to redeem them.
To redeem a money-off coupon at a self-service vending machine:
- Scan the coupon using the machine’s bar code reader.
- An on-screen message will ask to confirm that you want to redeem your coupon. Tap “Yes.”
- Retrieve the coupon from the ticket dispenser.
- Scan the coupon’s bar code on the vending machine. The value of your coupon will be credited to any balance used toward purchasing Maryland Lottery tickets.
If you redeem a money-off coupon at the register, rather than using a self-service vending machine, the Lottery terminal will print a voucher receipt and the retailer will scan the voucher receipt on the terminal to give credit toward a Lottery purchase.
To redeem a coupon for a specific Lottery draw game at a self-service vending machine:
- Scan your coupon using the machine’s bar code reader and a ticket for that game will automatically print.
- Retrieve the ticket from the ticket dispenser.
If you redeem a coupon for a specific game at the register, the Lottery terminal will print your draw game ticket after the retailer scans your coupon.
Established in 2013, My Lottery Rewards is a free bonus program that provides Maryland Lottery players with the opportunity to earn prizes and enter second-chance promotions by entering draw game tickets and non-winning scratch-off tickets into their accounts. Visit the How It Works page on the Rewards website for more information on the program.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at email@example.com
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
