N.C. Lottery machines installed

North Carolina LotteryNorth Carolina Lottery: N.C. Lottery machines installed

Lottery machines are coming to counter tops at convenience stores around North Carolina.  In fact, at least one was installed Thursday.

Contractors began installing machines at the Kangaroo store on Castle Hayne Road in New Hanover County Thursday morning. It's one of the first devices in Southeastern North Carolina. Lottery machines are already in place in Wilmington at the Scotchman on 23rd Street and a Kangaroo store on Oleander Drive.

The stores get something for giving up the space that used to be home to Slim Jims and bubble gum. They get 7% of the ticket sales. So far more than 6,000 stores statewide have applied. Lottery officials estimate a couple thousand stores will be told no after background checks.
