Maryland LotteryMaryland Lottery: Maryland lottery pays out big in Pick 4 gameRating:

BALTIMORE, Md. — The Thursday Pick 4 midday drawing results of 1-0-2-0 paid out more than $1.5 million in prizes, according to the Maryland Lottery.

That's 5 times as much as players spent on Pick 4 tickets for the drawing.  The lottery sold $289,723 in tickets for the drawing and rewarded $1.5 million in prizes.

In addition, the past two days have been very exciting for Pick 4 players.  Add in this week's Tuesday and Wednesday evening drawings, and Pick 4 players have received almost $3 million in prizes from those three drawings alone.

"Pick 4 players are on a roll this week," said Lottery Director Buddy Roogow. "This comes on the heels of a huge weekend for Pick 3 players. It just proves people really do win."

The Maryland Lottery's Pick 3 and Pick 4 drawings are held twice daily — midday and evening, seven days-a-week.

All Maryland winning numbers are published on Lottery Post's Maryland Lottery Results page (www.lotterypost.com/results/md) within minutes of the drawing.

            You know what Massachusetts would do if so many people like that hit on a pick 4? just bring down the pot prize to say $3,100 or some lousy figure.

            Yeah, the Massachusetts lottery never loses. They try to be more profitable like the NY lottery by cutting down the number and size of prizes anywhich way they can.

              thats so true

              where is the watchdog group to see what the mass lottery is really up to

              one of these days we will read some story about how corrupt the lottery is just like everyother group today

              because someone is not doing their job
