Members who access their accounts on a computer will need to print coupons and takethem 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.
