You got your first chance to play the lottery in North Carolina 15 years ago today – March 30, 2006 − and since then the fun and games have raised $8 billion for education programs in our state.
We’ve created some fun ways for you to celebrate the anniversary with us. Here’s how.
- Use your Lucke-Rewards points to enter our 15th Anniversary Cash drawing. You could win a $15,000 grand prize or one of the 15 prizes of 1,500 Lucke-Rewards points. The entry deadline is Wednesday and the drawing is scheduled for Wednesday, April 7.
- Collect a surprise gift from us to celebrate. Today and Wednesday only, earn 15X Lucke-Rewards points on all games. Yes, everything - scratch-offs, draw games, Fast Play, and Keno. Earn 15X points when you enter your tickets into your Lucke-Rewards account during the next two days. Learn more here.

Every ticket that is purchased provides money for education. At our current level of sales, the lottery raises an average of $2 million a day for education.
We’re proud to play our part in supporting our students and schools and will work to continue this success for the next 15 years. This year, the money raised by the lottery:
- Supports the costs of school workers in all school systems
- Helps to build and repair schools in all 100 counties
- Helps to make college more affordable to students attending state universities and community colleges
- Supports the NC Pre-K program for at-risk four-year-olds
- Helps cover the costs of school transportation.
Plus, under a new school construction program created four years ago, 30 counties in North Carolina have received grants of $10 million to $15 million to help build new schools.
We know you’re glad to help out education, but that you are hoping for your own wins too. Since 2006, total prizes add up to an estimated $18 billion, including seven Powerball or Mega Million jackpot wins ranging from $12 million to $344.6 million.
Best of luck to you today in all you do!
