Hi Peggy, today is the last day to claim prizes won from these scratch-off games. For Lucke-Rewards and Second Chance drawings a winner has 30 days from the day we first attempt to notify them to claim their prize.

NCEL what is up with so many repeats. Just another tactic used to cause so many players to not win. Do better NCEL!!!!

Has the NCEL publicly stated that it is unethical for a cashier/clerk to buy scratch offs while on duty at the store?NC Lottery
Hi, Daniel! While there is no law in North Carolina barring retailers or their employees from playing the lottery, more than 80 percent of all lottery retailers in North Carolina report having a “No Play on Duty” policy for employees, including 99 percent of corporate retailers such as grocery and convenience store chains. Rest assured, our security teams look into every win and lottery prizes are only awarded when there is no evidence to suggest something is wrong.

@NCEL I played $60 worth of $5 Luke progressive tickets yesterday not a single WIN, but I see there was 4 with $500 to $1000. How can my timing be so off that out of $60 I can't even get a break even prize yet others are winning $500 to $1000.NC Lottery
Hi, Angela! 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 your next ticket is a lucky one!
