Please remember each ticket is a bearer instrument. Sign the back of your ticket for your protection. You can collect a prize of up to and including $600 from any of the North Carolina Lottery retailers. North Carolina Lottery retailers can pay prizes on tickets presented up to a year after the draw.
One way that has a positive economic impact is through purchases made by prize winners. Last year players statewide won on average more than $4 million a day in prizes and 59 times players won prizes of $1 million or more. Those big winners tell us they plan to use their prize money to do things such as pay off their mortgage, make home improvements or buy a new home. They also share plans to make other purchases, save for the future and donate to causes they care about.
When you play the lottery, you aren’t just getting a chance to win big, you’re helping students and schools across the state. Over $708 million in money raised by the lottery supported education programs in all of North Carolina’s 100 counties last year. That’s the 2018-19 school year.
The purpose of Carolina Pick 3 is to generate revenue for the NCEL and ultimately, education programs in North Carolina through the operation of a specially-designed lottery game that will award prizes to ticket holders matching specified combinations of numbers randomly selected in twice daily drawings.
There are two daily drawings for Carolina Pick 3: one in the day and one in the evening. Drawings are held seven days a week at 3:00 p.m. and approximately 11:22 p.m. In accordance with NCEL prize payment policy, all online game prizes must be claimed within 180 calendar days of the drawing. A mailed online ticket must be received at NCEL Headquarters or any NCEL office within 180 calendar days of the drawing. Postmarks shall not constitute satisfaction of the 180 day requirement.
