Not surprise. Big cities and small predominantly cities win all the time big jackpots. Big cities mountains and beaches win the large jackpots

Will the N.C. lottery go back to making claims online an option? I think it should be considered in light of what is happening in Charlotte. There still may be those who would prefer to claim in person, but it should at least be an option to claim online for all those who play and support the lottery. It would also greatly help to reduce the potential of a spread.NC Lottery
Hey there Kassandra, At this time we don't have plans to allow claims of $100,000 or more online. That said, wins up to $99,999 can be claimed by mail for those who don't feel comfortable visiting us in person. You can learn more here:

Someone calling me? I DO wear gloves. I was already wearing gloves beforehand. As for points, I don't need them. I have more than I know what to do with. I care more about all the free money! LOL. And I haven't stopped during this entire time and didn't get sick once.

Keeping my fingers crossed everything turns out okay for your Charlotte employees and anyone who might have used that claim center recently. I urge players to take this covid-19 seriously, it's not like catching a cold you could die or infect a loved one. Wear a mask, wash your hands, stay 6ft apart. and for goodness sakes keep your hands out of trash cans it's not worth a few extra points. If you feel the need to dumpster dive, please wear gloves !!! The life you save could be your own!
