If and when it happens, here's what I would do if NC finally got it's lottery.

Just your run of the mill pick-3 game.

Just your run of the mill pick-4 game.

Pick 6 from 48. It's just $1 per play. Draws Wednesdays & Saturdays (if NC joins Mega) or Tuesdays and Fridays (if NC joins Powerball).

    NC should join Lotto South soon after it starts a lottery.

      Let me tell you why that would be bad for NC and all other Lotto South players. Take a look at the census projections, and you'll see by 2030, North Carolina will become the 7th most populous state, with over 12 million people, and will peck over 10 million by 2015. That's way too many people to add without becoming like a 6/56. Other states would be good for Lotto South, but not North Carolina, not with it's rapid growth.

        By the way, I would shoot for Mega Millions for North Carolina. But considering they said they'd only let one more state in, NC might be stuck with Powerball. And in any case, I might make North Carolina Lotto Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

          I think TN and NC should have their own instate game.  SC can go lotto south.  Lotto South is being hit often now which could mean a lot more players or very lucky players.  Anyway, I see lotto south changing their matrix in the next few years.

          How are you going to win if you don't play?

            LS needs a new matrix even as a three-state game.

                I'm guessing for CO... Larger jackpots. Hey to me I would be happy with $1 or $2 million.  I'm not picky lol

                How are you going to win if you don't play?
