Wow! What luck! Waiting on the 8th to come get my 100,000 on the bonus cash entry. Remember, I found a penny outside the store the other day. So I'm hoping it's still lucky for me. My daughter's car been sitting in yard over a year now, could use some of the winning to get it fixed.

Not to be disrespectful but edgecombe County school school is fall apart when my daughter went to southwest edgecombe when it rain they had buckets all in the schools catching the rain and all of school need repairing so my next question is when will they get funds? And Nash county keep building brand new schools. Just woke up with this on my heart to say.NC Lottery
Hi, Tammy! Legislators, not lottery officials, determine how to best used the funds raised by the lottery. Counties and local officials work to determine how lottery funds will be used to assist with school construction, and in 2017, a needs-based program was also adopted to increase funding for school construction. You can learn more about the programs and see a breakdown of how lottery funds are used on our site here: https://nclottery.com/education.
