RALEIGH, N.C. — A new four-digit daily numbers game for the North Carolina Education Lottery will begin next week.

Top prize for the "Carolina Pick 4" game starting April 17 will be $5,000. Players can either choose a number or have a sales terminal pick a random number.

The lottery already has the Carolina Pick 3 and Carolina Cash 5 games. North Carolina also participates in the twice-weekly multistate Powerball game.

Pick 4 drawings will air at 11:22 p.m. on television stations that already show the other nightly drawings.

The winning numbers can be seen within minutes of the drawing time at Lottery Post's North Carolina Lottery Results page (www.lotterypost.com/results/nc).

Also, users of Microsoft Windows Vista and the upcoming Windows 7 can have the winning numbers automatically delivered to their computer via the Lottery Results Gadget (www.lotterypost.com/gadget).

The state lottery commission agreed in December to start the four-digit drawing.

      Ack! 2 some odd years and the best they can come up with is another 4-digit game. No in-state lotto, or one of the 4-number games they have now in Washington or Arizona. Well, at least they finally have a new game.

              Congrats to you guys! I wished our state would look into getting a Pick 4 game and Pick 5 game.

                  With the pick 4, the playing option "combo" is available like South Carolina.  The payout for "combo" is way way better than "any." 

                  I wish the pick 3 was like that.   Rumor has it that "combo" will be added to pick 3 but I didn't find it on the website or hear otherwise except from an unreliable source.

                    Oh yeah,

                    I am waiting for the big pick four to get going. So that I can get my hands on some $$$$. Every time that I had seen the lottery vendor's I would ask them when are we going to get the pick-4, they would tell me they did not know maybe in the spring march or april . So here we are waiting for the big pick-4 to be kick off.

                      Hi Everyone!

                      I basically just play the "big" games, like Powerball. I'm curious as to know why so many of you are excited about the new NC Pick 4. I mean, we already have a "3" and a "5". Obviously, the odds are different, but I was surprised to see so many people happy this happened, when I was expecting to hear criticisim.

                      What is it that you know, that I don't know?

Now we can talk about your 4-digits. Just watch sometime your  3-digit will come right out of your 4-digit.See Ya!

                          That's really interesting. Hmmm... guess I'll have to learn more about it.

                          Thanks, Louise!
