We’re wrapping up another fiscal year here at the lottery, and wow, it’s been a whirlwind. During FY2019, we gave out an average of $5 million a day in prizes. That’s a lot of good luck!
No matter how you look at it, our players won big. We gave out 66 prizes of $1 million or more. That includes the largest prize in North Carolina history, a $344 million Powerball jackpot. We also gave out four Cash 5 jackpots of over $1 million.
Because you love playing our games, you helped us raise over $708 million for education this last year. That money helps build and repair schools, provide college scholarships, pay school workers, and fund preschool for four-year olds.
This is money we can’t raise without you. So remember, whenever you play a lottery game, the real winners are the schools and students in North Carolina.
