Pick 3 and Pick 4 players can win with Instant Cash

September 17, 2023 Posted by NC Lottery at 9:57 AM

Attention all Pick 3 and Pick 4 players. Today marks the return of Instant Cash.

Starting Sunday and lasting through the end of September, Instant Cash gives you a chance to win $5 cash instantly. All you have to do is purchase a Pick 3 or Pick 4 ticket valued at $1 or higher. The purchase must be made in a retail location.

You will know you won if you receive a Special Offer message and barcode on the bottom of your ticket. If you see that message, just detach it and give it to the lottery retail clerk, who will scan the bar code and give you $5 in cash instantly.

The $5 cash prizes will be awarded throughout the promotion.

Good luck and go get yourself an instant cash win!

I am a pick 3 and pick 4 player and this promotion will last to the end of the month at this rate. I played $60 worth of $1 tickets and did not receive a single instant WIN! @NCEL that is sad odds I believe with everyone else playing and my 60 I should have at least got 1, but nothing. Still waiting on my cash cow number that you all will not drop yet we get another repeat.

explain to the retailers b/c they don't understand either! I did win $5. today, do they keep that part to get reimbursed? & is that one tkt. only good for that day? very confusing! really don't like the fireball either! go back to the 'sum it up.' Thank you. LJNC Lottery
Hey there, Linda! If you receive the $5 Instant Cash voucher, it will be printed at the bottom of your ticket and you can take that ticket to the clerk at the counter (make sure you keep the top half of your ticket if that draw hasn't occurred yet!) and they will take the Instant Cash voucher and award you your $5. You have 180 days to claim the Instant Cash, so it does not need to be claimed the same day as your purchase. You can check out our page here for more info: https://nclottery.com/promo/pick3-pick4-instant-cash.

Good! I like this promo when y’all first did it. Then y’all stopped it in the middle of the promo lol! Maybe it’ll keep the players interested til the end of September, cause the numbers and repeats that’s been coming out haven’t been.

Why does the barcodes not scan so Ai can get my moneyNC Lottery
Hi, Cynthia! The Instant Cash voucher barcodes can only be scanned and redeemed at the counter at retailers - scanning using our app or lottery vending machines will not work. Sorry about that! You can read more on claiming your Instant Cash prizes here: https://nclottery.com/promo/pick3-pick4-instant-cash.

Well Just $6 on 6 pick 3 exact plays and $4 on 4 pick 4 exact plays, guess what? I didn’t win $5 instantly. Would have thought I would win half my money back but I was wrong. NC Lottery wins again

You guys had this before and it was stopped before the month was over. Is it possible it will happen again?NC Lottery
Hi, Dana! Not to worry - this promotion will run through the full advertised time frame and end on September 30th.

Good looking Free cash thank you!

I love the idea of instant wins on number drawings.

They made such a mess of it last time they’re bringing it back. Go back and look at my comments. Before the last one I predicted, it was gonna be a failure. And it was. They ran out of money and had to cut it off early. I indicated somebody or most of the people in the advertising department should be fired. No response. Now they’re doing it just for half of the month at the end of the month. This will be a failure too. This is a backhand way of trying to get people to buy inside of the store at the 7000+ retailers because a lot of them are getting upset about the online stuff. 200 people working lottery. I mean pyramid scheme. Making over $100,000 a year. A one dollar and a dream.
