The current Maryland Lotto is ALL cash (less 25% federal less 7.5% state tax). THe new Match6 style lottery is yet to be announced for payout options. They have the pay table for review. JimmySand response was correct based on the current Lotto.

AFAIK Maryland Lotto is still annuity-with-a-cash-option.

    I'm dissapointed. They are making a really bad move. From 2 plays for $1, you now get 1 play for $2. In a way, the price is quadrupling.

    There's more info here.

    This is going to be a 6/43 game, BTW, and the odds of winning on the page are a bit flawed. The single line odds are for a single line, and not for all three.

    That is bad. With Wild Card 2 you get 2 plays for a buck also, but if they changed the format to 1 play for 2 bucks I would quit playing.

    PA has been getting away with for a long time.  The gambler tends to gamble.

    This is true, but I know that I wouldn't play it if the format changed. I would probably just stick with powerball and use the two bucks on that. As is, they have not changed it so I'm fine. But I really hope they don't get ideas from PA and decided to charge 2 bucks for one play. I think that price of tickets is horrible for smaller jackpots.

    Dance like no one is watching.

      I'm disappointed that Maryland will have no more lotto just like what Ohio did this year with their Lotto Plus. I wonder what is Multi-Match in Maryland? I would be disappointed if it's $2 per play.

        Cash only- Thanks for clarifying the earlier information. Currently the options run for annuity or cash. I stand corrected.

          Maryland Lotto was annuity-only until late 1998. They were one of the last games to change the rules for the jackpot.
