Powerball could be coming to Maryland in four or five months, according to the state's lottery director.

Buddy Roogow told WBAL-AM that an official announcement could come in the next few days.

Roogow said negotiations have taken place over the last several months between officials in the states that operate Mega Millions and Powerball.

He noted that Powerball ticket sales in Maryland should bring in $25 million in additional revenue each year to the state.

Roogow expects sales to total $50 million in a full year.

Currently, 34 states take part in the Powerball game. Twelve states play Mega Millions.
