First of all NC need to make the payouts better, this is one of the reasons why people aren't buying here.  The scratch offs are just plain crazy to buy.  I don't buy them here at all.  I like Virginia's much better and my luck seem to be with VA.

    According to the article, the Powerplay multiplier will come to NC this spring. The multiplier is called PowerPlay. Maybe they meant to say just the 10x will be available this spring.

    NY Blotto (currently 6/59) has always paid out 40%, and players have gradually taken notice. Imagine a flash cut from 65% to 40% on scratches.

    This is why you can't believe everything you read. 

    NC does have the Powerplay multiplier option up to 5.  The 10 is suppose to come in the spring for a few weeks.  Now let's just hope NC does not try to increase that $2 ticket to a $3 ticket just because it's going to 10.  We will have no lottery at all then because people are not going to pay for something extra especially when we have a BAD lottery.  Yes, it's bad.
