New ‘$100,000 Crossword’ game in stores Tuesday

10:10 AM


When you play instant games, do you like to scratch fast or take your time? A new $5 scratch-off on sale Tuesday called ‘$100,000 Crossword’ is perfect if you prefer to savor the experience. Not only is $100,000 the largest prize ever offered on a crossword-themed game, the bigger ticket offers a bonus puzzle to make the fun last longer.

Here’s how the game works. Below the crossword puzzle, a player scratches to reveal 18 letters. If three or more words in the puzzle can be spelled using only those 18 letters, the ticket wins a prize. The bonus puzzle at the bottom of the ticket offers more chances to win. The game begins with more than $10.3 million in total prizes.

If you like card games more than crosswords, you can try your luck on a Blackjack Tripler ticket. The $2 game starts Tuesday with five top prizes of $21,000. There are eight hands on a ticket, each with the player’s cards and a prize. The prize for a given hand is won when the player’s cards add up to a higher total than the dealer’s total. If a player’s hand totals 21, the player wins triple the prize shown. The game begins with more than $5.3 million in total prizes.

Best of luck scratching and matching. See you soon here in the Lucke Zone.

@ PLAYER (DB) - A pack of tickets for $1-$10 games always has $300 worth of tickets.. so a pack of $1 tickets has 300 tickets, a pack of $10 tickets has 30 and so forth. Packs of $20 games have 30 tickets each.

@ JR CLARK - Once you've entered a non-winning ticket for Lucke Rewards points, its not necessary to keep the physical ticket anymore. Thanks for your question!

@ REDROOSTER4 - We've had fireworks-themed games in the summertime before. Not sure about a Halloween game, we'll have to pass along that suggestion! As for the odds, each game is different; you can check out the odds on the game pages on our main website.. thanks for your comment and good luck!

@ PLAYER (JR) - Its possible that North Carolina could get a six-number draw game in the future. But there aren't plans to introduce one right now. Seven years might sound like or feel like a long time but we're still a relatively new lottery. In the meantime, Carolina Cash 5 is the closest option to what you're looking for :-)

I love the seasonal scratch offs. Like Valentines Day. and Christmas...Holiday Millions is a wonderful game full of prizes.These games are fun and seem to pay out more often than the other games.Wonder if u will ever have seasonal games like Halloween and 4th of July?

when is the lottery going to come out with a new draw a state lotto, most states have this in addition to the large multistate provides a chance to win a life changing couple million to 20 million or so...and greatly reduces the astronomical odds like in powerball and megamillions, weve had lottery for what 7years now, don't you think its time?

@ PUNGOCREEKER - Back in May, we had a winner from Belhaven collect a $10,000 prize playing Cash Spectacular. And just last week we had a Cash 5 jackpot winner from Beaufort County collect his prize:

Would like to see some winners in Belhaven, NC. I know a lot of people play but never see any big winners posted - maybe in time for Christmas.

@ LAURIE21 - Tickets that cost $5 generally have the chance to win larger prizes than tickets that cost $3. Best of luck!
