I've posted this once, but I'll post it again (with some revisions). This is what NC should do.

It's About Bloody TimeTM

Just a standard pick-3 game. Drawings everyday.

Just a standard pick-4 game. Drawings everyday.

 


Pick 5 out of 39, just $1 to play. Drawings every weekday.


Prize

Match 5
$100,000

Match 4
$250
1 : 3,386.8
Match 3
$15
1 : 102.6
Match 2
$1
1 : 9.6

Overall Odds : 1 in 8.7

$100,000 will be paid out to each 5 out of 5 winner unless there are more than 5 winners. In that case, they will split a $500,000 prize pool.

Pick 6 out of 48, just $1 to play. Jackpots start at $1,000,000 20-year annuity value. Could grow to $25 million! Drawings Wednesdays and Saturdays.

All North Carolina Lotto prizes are pari-mutuel, and will vary from draw to draw.

Multi-State Game

Keep in mind that this is a suggestion, not the actual commission plan.

    I feel like I'm reading an eye chart.

    I love the tagline - It's About Bloody Time - now that would be funny!

      Congratulations NC!!!  Good for y'all!!        Party   

      THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!! for your support and for hanging in there with us North Carolina LP members and listening to our frustrations over not having a lottery and the entire lottery political boxing match issue.  LP has some fantastic members and I'm spreading the word about this website to everyone I know that plays the lottery (Todd, you're the bomb!!!).  Thanks for the Congrats and can't wait till I buy my first N.C. Scratch-Off.  I'll probably be the first one in line the minute I hear they are on sale. Hyper  Also, BTW JimmySand, LOVE THE N.C. LOTTERY ICON graphics!!!!  They are "on the money". 

      Thanks Again To All.  Here's to You "LP MEMBERS". Cheers

        I think while either multi-state game would be good for people living in NC, I think Mega Millions would do a better job at attracting out-of-state players (particularly the Greenville-Spartanburg, SC area). Powerball might attract a few players out of the Hampton Roads area, but not as much as Mega would attract Upstate SC players.

          I like your spin on things. Would you consider being our lottery director?

              i agree with your proposal the more people that can share in the jackpots the more evenly is spread the wealth

              the odds do not mean much to those who win the jackpot
