The MD lottery site still says that the sales for the raffle ended today at 6 PM.  No word on the drawing date and time or if sales will be extended.

Any thoughts or ideas?  I was going to buy another ticket, but I guess 7 will suffice.

Thanks all!

    I don't think they are going to draw the numbers anytime soon.  So far they have only sold like  250,000 tickets.  They have to sell 420,000 tickets  before drawing can take place.  I only bought 2 tickets but I am sure you can still buy more.  Website probably is not updated. 

    Good Luck.

        Thanks 44moi, I knew sales were cut off at 6:00 but was unsure of the draw time.  MD does such a lousy job of communicating with their players.  I belong to the VIP Club and it's like pulling teeth to get any info.

        Maybe it's time for Buddy to go back to State Politics and leave the lottery to professionals to run.

          Thanks...agree that the MD lottery does not communicate much with players.  I belong to the VIP Club too and I don't get many e-mail messages about anything.

          Good luck to all playing in MD!Wink

              Go to the Maryland results page here on LP, all numbers for the rattle are there.

               

              Check the State Lottery Report Card
