Maryland Lottery's Green Ball promotion adds bonus drawings

Maryland LotteryMaryland Lottery: Maryland Lottery's Green Ball promotion adds bonus drawings

BALTIMORE, Md. — The Maryland Lottery's Green Ball Double Draw promotion was triggered three times this past weekend, paying out hundreds of thousands of dollars in extra prize money to players of the Pick 3 game.

The green ball appeared during Saturday's midday drawing and during both the midday and evening drawing on Sunday, paying out an additional $310,595 in winnings for Pick 3 players.

Since the promotion's start on July 20, seven green balls have been drawn, resulting in $730,800 in additional Pick 3 pay-outs.

During Green Ball Double Draw, Lottery officials conduct an additional drawing after the midday and evening Pick 3 drawings, providing the possibility for an additional Pick 3 drawing. The drawing takes place in a separate machine that contains 12 white balls and 1 green ball. If the green ball is drawn, a second set of Pick 3 numbers are drawn, thus doubling the chances that players will win.

Green Ball Double Draw will continue until August 16.

    I wish the director of the drawings would pull back the camera abit so that we can get a visual of the balls dancing around in the ball box. I watched again tonight and it amazes me that now the tube on the top of the box where the ball exits, is frosted over. I maybe wrong, it may have been that way all along.

    As far as the payout goes.......Shifty

    Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

    Come on Jackpot!!!

      It's a bad camera angle and the lights are reflecting on the tube if the tube was machined inside and they didn't polish it or flame it it would be so cloudy you couldn't see the ball at all.

      If your unhappy about something call them up and voice your concern.

        Was told it's because people want to see the numbers on the balls when the come out of the machine. So the camera is focused , a tight shot, on the balls.   OK

        You can't please everybody.
