The General Assembly created the State
Lottery Agency by Chapter 365 of the Acts
of 1972, for the purpose of generating
revenue to help support the operation of
the State. The establishment of the Agency
was contingent upon the adoption of an
amendment to Article III, Section 36 of
the Constitution of Maryland. The amend-
ment was ratified by referendum on No-
vember 7, 1972, and accordingly the Agency
commenced operation on January 2, 1973
under the guidance of a Commission and
the immediate supervision of a Director.
The Commission consists of five mem-
bers, all of whom are appointed by the
Governor with the advice and consent of
the Senate of Maryland, for specified terms.
The Commission members annually elect one
member as Chairman of the Commission.
The Agency is under the immediate su-
pervision and direction of a Director ap-
pointed by the Governor, with the advice
and consent of the Senate. The Director is
aided by two Deputy Directors who are
appointed by the Director with the approval
of the Commission.
The Agency conducts a state-wide lottery
operation from its Baltimore headquarters.
A distribution and collection system is
maintained with the cooperation of selected
commercial banks in various areas of the
State for the purpose of distributing lottery
tickets, retrieving unsold tickets and collect-
ing lottery revenues. The actual sales outlets
are selected from existing retail establish-
ments that obtain their tickets from, and
return unsold tickets and revenue from the
sale of the tickets to the designated banks.
Weekly drawings are held and prizes are
claimed through any of the Claim Centers
located in selected existing commercial es-
tablishments and public facilities throughout
the State. Millionaire drawings are held
periodically depending on the accumulation
of sufficient prize money.
In July 1976, the Maryland State Lottery
Agency began a legal pick-your-own 3 digit
