Big week ahead for N.C. lottery

North Carolina LotteryNorth Carolina Lottery: Big week ahead for N.C. lottery

The North Carolina Education Lottery gets under way this week and several major events are planned.

On Monday the first advertising will hit radio and television. The ads will be teasers to let consumers know that the lottery starts Thursday.

By Wednesday thousands of tickets will be in the hands of more than 4,000 retailers.

Then, the first ticket will be sold in North Carolina at 6 a.m. Thursday.

Pamphlets will be available at retailers explaining how to play the games and what your odds are of winning.

Four scratch-off games will be available this week, with more on the way in about two weeks. The Powerball starts May 30 and other games will start in the fall.

Retailers will get their hands on the first tickets Wednesday.

I'd like to know what the "other" (online) games will be. I hope NC is leaning towards Hot Lotto, computerized drawings and all, or a "classic" lotto game, rather than joining Lose for Life.

    When NC starts to sell Powerball I am hoping for an increase in the roll over jackpot amounts.-weshar75

      A news article I read online mentioned pick 3 or a pick 5 as possible games to be added in the fall.No mention of the Money for Life type of games.I'm sure there will be more information about future games after the Powerball game starts.

        "The lotto will start tomorrow

        Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow

        There'll be fun

        Just thinkin' about tomorrow

        Clears away the conservatives

            and their horro'

        Cause their done

        When I still can't play

        it seems cold and gray

        and lonely

        I'll just stick out my chin

        and grin

        because I know,oh

        The lotto will start tomorrow

        So I gotta hang on til tomorrow

        Come what may

        Tomorrow

        Tomorrow

        The lotto starts tomorrow

        It's only a day away!"

            NC better not even be considering Lose for Life. It's already reached its peak. Without a jackpot, Lose for Life will never get exciting.

              i think they will try regular games like pick 3 and pick 5 at first.
