North Carolina will finally get a lottery according to the Charlotte Observer.

"N.C. to have lottery, thanks to budget deal".  It is about time!  They finally came up with something that everyone agreed on.  Awesome! Lawmakers will get a copy of the budget by Monday and the Chamber will get it by Wednesday.

        Thanks Maddog10.  In a few months we will be able to go to the corner store to place bets rather than driving to SC.  I just hope they don't start fighting about it again and just get it up and running.

          I'm pretty sure it will take at least 6 months to get something in place.  Yes, I would like to see the multi-state game too.  I'll be glad if they just get anything.  It is criminal the way we have to sneak and play the lottery.

            you're welcome Tenaj. I think it's pretty much beyond the stage of fighting now. All the minor odds and ends are coming together. The inevitable is finally becoming a picture, which was once considered a jig-saw puzzle. The children of N.C. will finally have the means of a decent education available to them, thanks to open minds.

            All i can say is "grab them gears" and get me to the church on time..!

              I need to create a NC Lottery concept soon. Oh wait, I already did. Well I'll come up with some pick-6 concepts and have you guys pick one for me to suggest to the lottery commission.

                    We can only hope that the children of NC get a more decent education as promised.  Although the lottery proceeds may go to education, in reality, the education system does not see more funds, because the state then diverts funds from the general fund toward other purposes -- all the lottery proceeds end up doing is just replacing those funds.

                      Since North Carolina is getting a lottery, I will probably consider moving there from Albuquerque, NM.  What a treat that will be!

                          Cool.  You can take Roadrunner and a couple of the other NM specialties with you.

                            I'm assuming you're talking about Roadrunner Cash. At which I will remind them do not take the computers with you. We don't want NC to finally get a lottery, and then find out it can be rigged very easily.

                              I appreciate the reminder.  Yep.... you figured it out in spite of the cammie job I attempted by only calling it Roadrunner.

                              Care to make a small side bet concerning whether NC has computerized draws, or ball draws?  I can find a C-note around here somewhere I'd put on RNG.  Might go higher if you feel up to it.  Lots higher.
