Maryland became the sixth state to offer a lottery rewards program Monday, allowing those who did not cash in to collect points instead.

Players holding losing scratch-off tickets can now register online at and enter ticket numbers to accumulate points, which are redeemable for prizes ranging from music downloads to big-screen televisions.

"Offering this added value to Maryland Lottery scratch-off tickets is an innovative way to reward our loyal players," said John Martin, the state's assistant director for the lottery, in a statement. "We hope our scratch-off players take advantage of this program."

Those who enroll in the rewards program will also receive exclusive offers from the lottery.
