Maine Lottery Rules and Laws

The Maine State Lottery has been on the run since 1974. Today, it is a member of MUSL and the Tri-State Lotto Commission, which explains why its pool of games is so impressive. Despite all the unique features, MSL lotteries are subject to some common rules:

  1. You can start playing the lottery here if you are 18 or older.
  2. If you come from another state or abroad, you can join any game in Maine. However, you must pay taxes if you win big here!
  3. Cash and annuity options are available to you if you win a national lottery jackpot. You are to decide on them within 60 days.
  4. You can play Powerball and Megabucks by subscription and purchase up to 104 advanced plays. However, the Maine mailing address is a prerequisite!
  5. The winner claim form in Maine can be filled out on-screen and printed after that.
