Due to adverse weather conditions in New Hanover County, the Wilmington regional office and claims center of the N.C. Education Lottery will remain closed on Friday, Sept. 21.
If conditions allow, the lottery plans to open the Wilmington office on its normal schedule on Monday, Sept. 24.
All other lottery offices in the state, including the Raleigh headquarters and regional offices and claims centers in Asheville, Charlotte, Raleigh, Greenville, and Greensboro are operating on a normal schedule.
After you win a prize you have plenty of time to claim it, so please don’t risk going out in dangerous conditions such as flooded roads.. If you won a draw game, you have 180 days to claim. If you won a scratch-off prize, you have 90 days from the game’s end date to claim. Sign the back of your ticket and your prizes will be waiting on you when conditions improve.
All lottery drawings will be held as scheduled.
As North Carolina continues its recovery from Hurricane Florence, the lottery will provide updates on the status of its operations on its website, nclottery.com, on its social media channels, and through media releases.
