Game Rules are stated throughout this consumer brochure. In addition, the following Rules govern the Mega Millions game. Mega Millions tickets (“Tickets”) are bearer instruments. For your protection, sign the back of your Ticket. A playslip is neither a valid receipt, nor proof of purchase. Your game Ticket, not your playslip, is the only valid proof of the selection made and the only valid proof for claiming a prize.
MEGA MILLIONS TICKETS CANNOT BE CANCELLED OR VOIDED AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN PROCESSED. You have the sole responsibility for checking the accuracy of the data printed on your Ticket(s), including the numbers you selected and the drawing(s) you want to enter. Your Ticket will be valid for the drawing dates printed on your Ticket. The Maryland State Lottery Agency (“Lottery” or “Maryland Lottery”) is responsible only for numbers actually played via the Lottery terminal. Neither the Lottery nor Lottery retailers will be responsible for printing errors.
By purchasing a Mega Millions Ticket, the player agrees that, as amended from time to time, all Lottery statutes, laws, regulations, policies, and rules, including ticket or subscription validation requirements, other applicable laws, rules in this brochure, rules on the Mega Millions playslip, and all Mega Millions Official Game Rules, Procedures, and other documents govern all aspects of the Mega Millions game, playslip, Ticket, subscription, claiming, prizes and payments.
The Lottery is not responsible for lost, stolen, or destroyed Tickets, Tickets redeemed by a Lottery retailer in error, or winning numbers repeated or displayed in error. All winning Tickets are subject to validation by the Lottery in accordance with Lottery rules and regulations. Tickets irregular in any manner or failing to meet validation tests or other requirements are void.
Prizes are not assignable or transferable except as provided by law. All winnings are subject to state, local and federal taxation. Player agrees that claims, if any, arising out of Mega Millions Tickets can only be pursued against and litigated in the State where the Ticket was bought, pursuant to the current rules and procedures of that State, and this is the player’s sole and exclusive remedy. Lottery’s liability for void or nonconforming Tickets, if any, is limited to replacement of the Ticket.
You must be 18 or older to buy or cash Tickets. Prizes must be claimed within 182 days from the drawing date. Mega Millions Official Game Rules and other documents are available upon request at Lottery headquarters and
are subject to change from time to time.
