@ncel. How much tax is taken from a $10k scratch off winning? What is the amount after taxes?NC Lottery
Hi Sheila, we are required to withhold 24% federal and 4.99% state taxes on prizes. Thanks for the question!

Have you guys ever considered having games online to play? We recently were on a trip to Williamsburg,and I discovered the Virginia lottery had all sorts of games you can play online to win money. I loved it! You could play for as little as .50..right on up to 50.00.NC Lottery
Hi Tamela, thanks for the suggestion! We are always looking at new products to offer our players, and love getting feedback on what players would like to see in the future!

Does anyone ever win on drawings? It says TBA NC Lottery
Lots of players win Lucke Rewards and Second Chance drawings! The winners page will say TBA when we are in the process of contacting a winner to claim. Players have 30 days to claim a Second Chance or Lucke Rewards prize, and we will contact them by email, phone and certified letter to notify them of their win. If a Second Chance or Lucke Rewards prize goes unclaimed we move to alternate winners until the prize is claimed.

No trips for NC. That is sad because players are going to other states when we could use it here. NCEL has lost do many players and will Continue if they do t compete.NC Lottery
The odds of a trip coming out in a North Carolina drawing are the same as in a Pick 3 drawing anywhere else -- exactly 1 in 1,000. Those odds never change, no matter how recently or long ago a triple came out. We love it when popular numbers come up at random, because that means our players win a bunch of prizes! But for draw games to be fair, every number has to have the same chance of being drawn.

Hi Angela, after Dec. 1 players will not be able to claim prizes on the tickets listed above. Half of unclaimed prize money goes to education—the good cause that the lottery serves. The other half is available to be used as prize money in other games and lottery promotions like Second Chance and Lucke Rewards drawings.

Hi Maneka, if you are referring to Second Chance and Lucke Rewards drawings, winners are notified by email if they win a drawing. We also follow up by phone and certified mail.

Am I a LUCKY WINNER! Say yes and make my hard life easier lol!

NCEL if second chance comes from losing tickets as well why not just put more winning tickets out and just be done with all the overhead it takes to run the second chance, because the same people keep winning over and over again. I have not even won a T-shirt on this second chance. Spent $130 on scratch offs and got a big $20 back. All these tickets need to be picked up!
