won 400 on the big crush betting 2 bucks, put in 100NC Lottery
That's awesome, Frank! Congratulations on the win!

2/28/2024 11:42 - Frank W.

how long does it take for a win to post to my visa debitNC Lottery
Hi, Frank! For first-time withdrawals, it can take a few additional business days for our team to review identity verification documents and process your win. After the request is processed and approved on our end, funds can be deposited onto a VISA debit card within 1-2 hours!

2/12/2024 04:09 - Kyle R.

Don't Waste Your Money!! So not worth. Do some research into other reviews at the minimum before you buy anything.

I tried three times to set Underwater Treasures ticket price to 5 cents, but every time I got to the play screen it showed $1 ticket price. And every time I hit play, it deducted $1 from my total. This happened three times before I gave up. How do I get 20 plays, at 5 cents each, for that $1? It seems like the game kept defaulting to $1 per play despite what I did with the slider bar?!NC Lottery
Hey there, Laura! Make sure you are adjusting both sliders - the one for the wager amount, and the one for the number of players per ticket. This game offers 10 or 20 plays per game, so it sounds like you played 20 $.05 cent plays to equal $1 per game! If you need additional assistance with this, or if something still seems incorrect, please reach out to https://nclottery.com/Help and our Online Support team can look into this further for you.

2/03/2024 08:14 - NC Lottery

@Kimberly, as we mentioned below, when you click Play on a Digital Instant game, the outcome of the game is randomly determined and set in place, so unveiling symbols or bonuses does not change what you win. The prize was determined the moment you hit "play." You can also watch a replay of every Digital Instant win in your online play history in your account page.

2/02/2024 09:15 - Kimberly W.

I have often looked for the winners of the reward drawings and never see any announcements with names or pictures on your page you have to go into the reward drawing to see the names of winners and their locations I find that odd also the second chance drawings where are those winners I never see those either. Do you really pay that out I'm beginning to wonder.NC Lottery
Hi Kimberly, depending on the prize amount, Lucke Rewards and Second Chance winners can often claim their prize online. It is only for wins over $100,000 that the winner must come to our Raleigh Claims Center to receive their prize. When winners come to our office it gives us the opportunity to get their story and take a photo to share with our players!

2/02/2024 09:13 - Kimberly W.

I saw earlier a gentleman complained about the lamp game closing out every time he got a chance at the chest selection with an opportunity to win a big prize, the same thing has happened to me every time I play that game it's like it's almost set up to shut down the site with the oops error and then the game closes out and I've noticed that most times it's when I pick epic prize twice right off the bat with a chance at possibly winning it. When I try to go back in I can't and often the money that I won beforehand is also gone because the game starts all over. The way you explain to him to go back in does not work or it did not for me the game often loads slowly or won't open it all after several tapping of the screen. I'm beginning to think this game is a setup and not legitimate if it is legitimate then North Carolina lottery should look into why it won't open.

1/23/2024 03:03 - Kyle R.

I wish there was a list of the bigger winners(if there are any, like $1000+). Ive played quite a few times and end up always losing. The wins are very small. From my experience so far I wouldn't recommend it. If this changes I will change my comment.

1/16/2024 02:24 - Wilhelmena S.

I've submitted verification twice. Still no $$$ credied to my account. What's the problem? Deposits from me to you always happen instantly, why not reciprocate in like manner? Thank you.NC Lottery
We're sorry for the delay, Wilhelmena! First-time withdrawal requests can take up to 7-10 business days for our team to review identity verification documents. After the first request is approved, you won't have to complete this process for future withdrawals to the same payment method. We work to review requests as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience caused by this delay. You can check the status of your request at https://nclottery.com/Help.

1/15/2024 05:26 - James W.

These games are absolute trash for odds. DON'T play! NC will NEVER allow casinos when they can steal the resident's money legally with these games.

1/10/2024 02:29 - Lory J.

These things are rip offs we put up a video on YouTube on how fast we lost $600 and we are going to continue to do it until this scam is investigated we have 2 videos from today to post later me and my husband both lost $500 each in 5 min each these are 100 times worse than online casinos another way to rip off the poor in nc go check out our YouTube videos before you play the first one is NC lottery online scrathers ripoffNC Lottery
Hi there, Lory! Every time you play the lottery, it takes luck to beat the odds. That's true whether you play one ticket or 10. There's only ever a chance to win—never a guarantee. We wish every ticket could win a prize, but prize money comes from non-winning tickets. That's why $1 could win $1,000 or $10 could win $1 million. We hope that you will only play for fun if you're enjoying yourself, otherwise there are many things in life more important than the lottery.

1/08/2024 12:00 - Dolores G.

I like the game, but they should give more bonuses. I like fact that when we play we help the education Department for all schools

1/05/2024 12:55 - Elizabeth C.

When will you add a hold button for spinning instead of having to tap to spin each time? It could be useful.NC Lottery
Hi, Elizabeth! Thanks so much for your comment and for sharing that feedback - this is something we could look into for the future, and we'll pass this along to the folks that make those decisions!

12/27/2023 12:50 - Lory J.

Lost $500 in 5 min worst odds of any game I’ve ever played looks like another way for NC to take more money from hard working North Carolina residents you see the news report on 1 person hitting 100k but you don’t see them reporting on all the people they are ripping off

12/22/2023 07:33 - Chad C.

Majician does ok for me.

12/14/2023 07:11 - Steven C.

I have spent well over $100 and have yet to win anything worth playing literally like $10 winnings after spending $100 the odds doesn't seem anyway near fair I can already tell if something isn't changed this want last long at all.

12/07/2023 10:15 - dustin a.

These games are a trash I’ve played 3 different times playing $10 spin and lost $500 each time in 10 minutes it’s a crying shame our elected officials won’t allow casinos but will straight up rip us off at every turn at least you can win at the gas station illegal machines the digital instants doesn’t pay and you spin for $10 and sometimes only win $2.50

12/07/2023 12:00 - Cody P.

What a joke. Such crappy odds for slot games. Don't play people. RTP is less than you'd get at a casino. It's a scam. You will lose it all very quickly.

11/30/2023 09:32 - Janice N.

Hey I withdrawed $100 of my winnings -2 days ago still haven't received it..Had to show copy of my I.D & bank request for $100? When will I receive my withdraw?NC Lottery
Sorry about that, Janice! It can take our team a couple of business days to review identity verification documents for the first withdrawal request. Rest assured, we work to process these requests on our end as soon as possible, and you won't have to complete the identity verification process again for future withdrawals!

11/30/2023 04:22 - Patrick R.

Games are fun but can loose money fast. Play the demo's first. You can also win fast, but asalways, the odds are against you. I won some today and will try to withdrawal, will post an update on that later.

11/28/2023 02:48 - david H.

Too tight. You guys need to loosen the odds a little. Played 20$ and only won $1.75 total at $1 per play until I was out. Not playing again.

11/25/2023 08:38 - Yetara M.

How do I cash outNC Lottery
Hi Yetara, if you win on Digital Instants the funds will automatically be deposited into your Online Play account. Then, simply make a withdrawal request to transfer the money to your own account using ACH, Paypal, VISA, Online Banking or Check. Here's the number if you need any assistance: 866-934-0289

11/22/2023 01:27 - Juliana R.

Questions: If a player gets the "Top Prize" bonus in The Lamp game, when turning over the chests, do the prizes behind each one stay the same or potential prizes shift after choice is made? Eg, I choose 7 chests with differing prize potentials, 2 have a low prize potential that are the same amount, and 5 differing prize potentials, on the next choice will there be a possibility of this lower choice being the prize because the system is set up that way or do all chests still have a potential to win because each prize behind them is set and doesn't change? Thanks.NC Lottery
Hi, Juliana! When you click Play on a Digital Instant game, the outcome of the game is randomly determined and set in place, so unveiling symbols or bonuses would not change any of the prizes that were meant to appear from that play - those would still be the same.

11/17/2023 08:10 - Melissa M.

I can’t believe you’re not offering not even 1 PROMO Code for the new digital games (Slots)basically…Virginia has great promo codes available.Give people an incentive NC LOTTERY!NC Lottery
Stay tuned, Melissa! We'll have some promo codes coming in the future! :D

11/17/2023 02:30 - Timothy R.

after the initial identity verificatn how much can be withdrawn? must one cash in at a regional office over $600, headquarters @ 100k?NC Lottery
Hey there, Timothy! You can withdraw from $1 - $10,000 per withdraw request. When you win online, prizes under $600 will automatically be deposited into your account, and prizes from $600 to $99,999 can be claimed entirely online. Prizes of $100,000 or more will require a trip into Lottery HQ to claim, though you'll still be able to start the claiming process online. :)

11/16/2023 01:22 - NC Lottery

Hi, @Danielle Simone R.! There is no way to hide games for specific player accounts, and we are unable to move the location of our Digital Instant games. We do want to take the opportunity to share some resources we have available for Online Play that may be helpful: we have daily deposit limits in place, but players can choose to set their own deposit limits or loss limits to limit the amount spent on Online Play. Players can also self-exclude, after which they will be unable to purchase tickets online, but this would be the case for all Online Play games, not just Digital Instants. We have more resources and support available at https://morethanagamenc.com for anyone who needs it.

11/16/2023 01:11 - Danielle Simone R.

Is there any way possible that you all could please consider putting those slot games elsewhere? I am addicted to casino style games, and rather than completely give up gambling altogether, I ONLY allow myself to play lotto since it’s easier for me to control my spending. I am embarrassed to say how much money I just lost playing your new slot games. It’s to the point that I will have to deactivate this online account and just start going back to the store once a week to play numbers. I loved the convenience of online play, but I won’t lose my house and car behind it!NC Lottery
Hey there, Danielle - thank you for reaching out! We responded your comment but due to the character limit, we had to respond in a separate comment - you can find it right above yours in this thread!

11/16/2023 12:54 - Elizaul L.

Today I won $150 but he asks me for all the verifications and I still don't receive the money and they don't send me any confirmation that it's in processNC Lottery
Sorry about that, Elizaul! It can take a couple of business days for our team to process the identity verification documents, after that we can approve the withdraw request and your funds will be on their way to you! You will only need to complete the identity verification for your first withdrawal request - after that, you'll only need to receive a verification code via the email linked to your account to withdraw funds. Apologies for any inconvenience, and rest assured we work to process those requests ASAP.

11/16/2023 11:26 - Linda A.

Absolutely hate this new format, I prefer the old version! The new digital games are a waste!

11/16/2023 08:44 - Eugene H.

Digital Instants have arrived: It's a whole new way to bilk people out of their money. I will be so glad when the sports betting is finalized. At least you have a chance, and I don't have to drive to Virginia each week.

11/16/2023 07:21 - Roger K.

How can I stop them digital tickets from coming up everytime I go into my account? I will not be playing another of them. They slow me down waiting on them to load.NC Lottery
Sorry about that, Roger! Unfortunately at this time, there is not a way to change the layout of our site/app for individual players. Once you reach our site or app, you can navigate away from the home page without waiting on the games to load if you'd like!

11/16/2023 06:15 - john T.

What a bunch of garbage . Bad enough North Carolina is one the lowest paid percentage to tickets printed but now another way to take peoples money . Casino in your pocket and then they say if you have a gambling problem call an 800 number. Terrible nc just terrible !!

11/16/2023 06:03 - Thelma F.

I love this but, it doesn't allow you to cash ocash out. You can only play lottery gameses with the winnings. Also, the games played don't give you option to choose the amount of money you want to play. Also you can only see your winnings if you're playing a game.NC Lottery
Hi, Thelma! All of our games have the option to adjust how much you wager per play. Some games have the option to adjust directly under the Play button, where you can add to or subtract from your wager. Other games have wager adjustments in the game settings - look for the 3 lines on the left or right side of the game to make adjustments. All winnings are added to your account balance, which you can certainly use to keep playing, or you can complete a withdrawal request to have those funds moved from your Online Play account to a bank account or debit card.

11/16/2023 04:59 - Jeremy P.

So far the digital instants have been great. Fast play need to be online as well.NC Lottery
Thanks for the love, Jeremy! We hope to be able to offer Fast Play online for our players one day - the future is full of possibilities!

Not all of the games have a “money mode,” for instance Frost or Flame. Unable to play.NC Lottery
Hi, Tena! On the Frost and Flame game page, there are two buttons - one for Demo Mode, and one that says "Play" that will take you into money mode!

Hey just want to let you know there is like 4 of the digital games, that can’t be accessed by an iPad. I ran in to this with the Virginia lottery. They had so many other games,I just played them. They haven’t fixed it yet to my knowledge. Good job on getting these games online!NC Lottery
Hey there, Tamela! Thank you so much for letting us know. If using an iPad, we recommend using the web version through a browser instead of through the app for best optimization of the games.

11/15/2023 09:23 - KYM B.

I still say that KENO is your best moneymaker for online games!!!

11/15/2023 08:52 - Dana A.

Not a fan of the way the site now looks! Please put it back ASAP!

11/15/2023 08:33 - Paul W.

Ok. Fun? Yes. But with that came tech navigation from, well, below us. Why?

11/15/2023 08:19 - Jonathan W.

When you play in demo mode, are the odds the same as when playing with real money?NC Lottery
Hi, Jonathan! Yes - the odds in Demo Mode are the same as they are in Money Mode.

11/15/2023 08:16 - Marie B.

I am going to stick with scratch off that I buy in person. I tried playing and it didn't work for me and I lost money -- didn't get to complete my play. Am I the only one that doesn't understand how to play??NC Lottery
Hi, Marie! We're sorry about that! The outcome for each Digital Instant game is determined at the time of purchase. So if you get disconnected from your browser or app, you’ll be able to re-enter our site or app and view the results and the replay of the game. If you get disconnected during a game, once you log back in, select “My Account” and “Digital Instants History” under the “Online Play History” section. The most recently played game will be at the top of the screen, and you can click “View” to replay the game and the results.

Hey there, Janice! Are you able to view and play any of the other games? We recommend trying to reload your web browser or app and see if that fixes the issue. If the issue persists, please reach out to https://nclottery.com/Help and our Online Support folks can look into this for you.

Tell Michalko this was unnecessary. So… online/mobile slots disguised as digital scratch offs. To add to the finance awards for next year? Not needed.
