I hope and pray I am lucky enough to pick or get picked for a big winner!

I NEED some better luck. I can't win on anything it seems lately. I sure do hope my luck changes and I can get a big winner!

All good, Charlene W.. But your statements could not be further from the truth. I have been a faithful member of this community since 2012. I won a lucky rewards drawing in 2013 for $500. I am still looking for my first 2nd chance win. When I get on a lucky streak I like to share that info with my fellow bloggers. Good luck to you.

Still getting "Invalid Ticket Submission" when trying to enter new scratch-off tickets in Lucke-Rewards. Tried both scanning through app on phone and manually entering ticket numbers on website. 9:30 AM, 9 JAN.NC Lottery
Hi John, Our team is working to get this fixed now. Please hold onto your tickets and try to enter them later.

Seems every other blog @Denver brags bout his winnings?He should be spoke person for the N.C.lottery must be one of them ? Been on second chance Over 4 yrs yet to win anything NC Lottery
We love hearing about our players wins! The player you mentioned has certainly had some good luck lately and shares great insight here on the blog, but they are not a lottery employee.

Since it seems that NCEL and VA lottery are having same scratch tickets can I suggest we make one more thing the same .... LOL Make a change so that stores can cash up to $600 so I can play my Pick 4 number 5585 and not have to go to the Main Lottery Office to cash it. This really hurts for that $1.... Ok NCEL step up and make the change. Help us out......!

WoW!!!!! Really nice the update on the total of entries are now showing for all the drawings. This should make a lot of people happy.

@BEVERLY R.: We understand your hesitation when it comes to sharing personal info. The reason folks are prompted to input their SSN is because that is how we verify that players are over 18 when they try to purchase lottery tickets online. We take the security of your personal information very seriously and have strict security practices and protections in place. However, you can choose to not input your SSN. You will still be able to participate in Lucke-Rewards and comment here on the blog, you just won't be able to purchase online.

Good luck to all year of goin to. Win this year in 2020 everyone have a happy new yrs..

I also can't enter any of new tickets into Lucke Rewards system.NC Lottery
Hi Tatiana, Our team is aware that folks are not able to enter the new games at the moment and are working to get it fixed ASAP. Please hold onto your tickets and try to enter them later today or tomorrow. Sorry about that!

I’m ready

The new $5 ticket is underwhelming. The top prize is only $500. That's something you'd see on a $1 ticket. If I'm going to spend 5 bucks, I want the chance to at least win 5000. On another note, when I signed in tonight, I got a prompt to update my info and was asked for last four digits of my SS#. I did provide this info and luckily a prompt asked if I wanted to continue. I fear I won't be able to access comments page one day if I don't provide SS#. NCEL does NOT need player's SS#. With all the hacking and identity theft going on, I don't care to provide SS# to every entity. If a player wins big, they go to Raleigh and can complete paperwork with this sensitive info. Otherwise, NCEL does not need such info from hundreds of thousands of people. NC Lottery
Hi Beverly, Please see our reply above.

So far so good. Monday I was gonna buy some ruby reds, my favorite station didn't have them put out yet. So I bought the last 8 of the old green 100x the cash. 4 out of 8 were winners. A 20, a 50 & 2 for 100 each = $270. NC Lottery
We're glad to hear you've been having good luck lately, Denver! We hope the new tickets are good to you, too.

1/07/2020 11:08 - Angela A.

NCEL you can not enter any of these new tickets for second chance I have tried all morning, because I had plenty of losers.... I purchased NINE "FULL of $500's" only to win $5 and did not Win anything on the $20, $3, $2, or $1 tickets. Looks like more winning for NCEL!NC Lottery
Hi Angela, Sorry about that! Our team is looking into why this is happening and they should have it resolved soon. In the meantime, just hold onto your tickets and try to enter them later.
