Hi there, Stephanie. There is a small window over night where the option to enter tickets is unavailable due to system updates. Try again and let us know if you are still having trouble.

John R. - Don't waste your time asking for NCEL to show the entries for 2nd chance or rewards drawings. Many times it has been requested by multiple folks over the years and NCEL refuses to provide something so simple that their customers request.

Would to be a winner soon

It would be "nice" if there were some transparency regarding these "2nd chance" drawings. A page which shows the breakdown of how many entries were in each "draw period". I hate spending my points without knowing what draw period has the least entries. You do reveal what prizes are left in each scratch game; this would be no different. Revealing the running total of entries accumulated for a drawing pool will allow players to choose to enter or not. I don't like wasting my entries against others who have friends collecting losing tickets (those friends work at lottery retail locations) and hand over *THOUSANDS* of losing tickets to people who did not pay for them. You should put "disposal" bins at your sites just for losing tickets so people stop CHEATING the system. It's grossly unfair, and negligent policing...

To TD & LH , I had 1500 entries and did not win anything in the X the cash. On previous blogs I've seen players say they had over 30,000 & over 60,000 entries in the x games & extreme games and did not win. Just sayin, a ship load of entries does not assure you a win. I won $500 back in 2013 when there was only about 200,000 members and I only had 148 entries. That was when you could only enter non winning tickets. Now there around 930,000 members & you can also enter winning tickets . That is why it is getting harder & harder to win.

I have noticed that I receive different points for the same type of ticket, same value on ticket. Example: I had 5 separate Cash 5 tickets. Purchase price on all was $1. When scanning the entry code on 4 of them, I received 1 point each, but one of the 5 was 2 points. I've noticed this as well on Keno, Mega Millions, and scratch. Some can be significantly different....again same ticket type and same price of ticket. What is the reason for that? NC Lottery
Hi Meredith! The number of points awarded on each ticket will vary. An eligible ticket will earn at least the same number of points as the price of the ticket. For example, a $5 scratch-off ticket will earn at least 5 points. However, sometimes tickets may earn MORE points as a bonus.

I understand that there are millions of entries in each drawing. But maybe NCEL or some of the winners can tell us how many entries did the winners have? I had 905 entries in X The Cash drawing, and I didn't win. Maybe some people have millions of entries-they are going to win, of course. NC Lottery
Tatiana- The number of entries that each individual player has in a game is not public information. And please remember it only takes one entry to win.

Ugghhh.! Won $1000 over the weekend. Went too pick up this morning, child support from 6 years ago took it Oh well, debt paid.

2/12/2018 12:44 - Lavanda H.

I was wondering if the ncel can help me understand these inquiries. I had 3,782 entries for x the cash 2nd chance, a game I played religiously for 6 months straight. I didn't win! I already know I went up against the odds, other players, and a random draw machine.but Is there a way you can tell me without names, how many entries others had, and number of players who played. I ask because I would like to know being that I've been playing since July 2017 and spent alot of money on scratch offs trying to beat one of those odds and win. A little closure for me if you will. Thanks :) NC Lottery
Hi Lavanda- There were over 5.6 million entries in that particular drawing.

Rich M., congratulations on your win! If you don't mind, could you tell us how many entries you had in this second chance drawing? Thank you. NC Lottery
Hi Tatiana- I'm not sure which drawing you're specifically referring to, but there were over 240,000 entries in the 10X Quick Cash Drawing, and over 5.6 million in the X The Cash drawing.
