So since they can't ban welfare receipents from playing the lottery....they've decide to change the name and take out the very misleading word....."education" from the name....I wonder what they will come up with? Maybe they could institute a scratch-off game where you could win oh let's say $50,000 and the right to rename the lottery LOL .....What do you think would be some good names?? I don't know maybe  "NC Tobacco road state lottery"?? Tarheel state lottery? The good ole North State Lottery? Let me know what you come up with LOL!!!

    The original game in AZ was named by contest (not sure what they got) and named it "The Pick" as in a gold miners pick.

        It may have been $500. the way I remember it. I cant find any old news articles but I think it was someone kid who said "why don't they call it the pick" and the guy submitted it and won.

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
