North Carolina Lottery Will Join Powerball

[quote] Powerball is coming to North Carolina.

 

The state lottery commission agreed Monday to join the multistate numbers game that allows residents to play for huge prizes without crossing the border to buy tickets. [/quote]

also this... Parameters for two vendor contracts --one for instant ticket and automated numbers game systems and the second for instant ticket printing and distribution -- should be finalized by Tuesday, Shaheen said.

 

Sounds like COMPUTERIZED DRAWINGS to me.

        By Automated Numbers Game Systems, they are talking about the computers that print out the tickets.

          I think the whole thing smells like rotten eggs. I wanted MM and it sounds like computerized as well.

            NC picked Powerball by default.The MM has placed a moratorium on any new states joining their game for 12 months following the addition of Kali-fornia.LOL

            The NC lottery chief did the right thing by getting on board with Powerball.There really wasn't any choice.

            Perhaps JimmySand9 is correct that it doesn't necessarily mean computerized drawing just yet for the other games.We can hope.

                With North Carolina in Powerball maybe that game will see bigger jackpots more often since it will actually take less than eleven draws to get over $100 million.
