@ HARLEY69 - If you take a look at our responses to other players who have made similar comments, you'll find that every entry made in a Lucke Rewards drawing has the same exact chance of winning. It's a matter of luck.

I noticed all the second chance drawings are winners in the same area all the time. It looks like to me it's rigged.

It will do you no good to complain here, you will get the same results everytime. Every one has the same chance, you might as well give up on that one. My email only gives me the winning numbers not winnings from drawings. The lottery wins some either way it goes. This lottery can be pretty frustating, and makes you upset when you spend and don't win, but everyone is not a winner, its the odds we have to remember. I live where theirs not alot of big winners, I am close to some of the winning citites around me, Lexington, Greensboro and Winston Salem. My city is very dry.

@ AP - Everyone's entries in a Bonus Bucks drawing have the same chance of being drawn at random.. the random drawing does not care what city a winning entry slip was issued in, or where the player lives. The drawings are fair to everyone, whether someone else from their city won a prize before or not. As for unclaimed prizes, its #1 the responsibility of players to keep their entry slips, and #2 when prizes go unclaimed, half the money goes back into the prize pool for future games and the other half benefits education programs.

@ SANDON - The date of the Holiday Millions second chance drawing for $3 million has not been determined/announced. We'll let you know here in the Lucke-Zone as soon as there's more info

@ CATBEACHGIRL - Once a Cash 5 Bonus Bucks drawing is held, and you check your entry slips to see if they match any of the winning numbers drawn, you dont need to keep the slips anymore. New entry slips, for the next drawing, should be kept until that drawing is held and you check your slips again. As for winners.. keep in mind that a majority of North Carolina lottery players live in the central part of the state and Charlotte. Players in those places have the same chance of winning as you do or anybody else does, there's just more of them. There's no geographic advantage or disadvantage to playing/winning a lottery prize.

LUCKE-ZONE: just how long are players supposed to keep their extra Cash 5 ticket? I've kept all of mine since the extra drawing started. and sorry, the majority of winners ARE in/around northern, central, western part of the state. very few in/around southeastern area.....

Problem i have with the drawings is I know everybody in the state enters but how on 8 out of 10 drawings same cites wins thats not being fair. Also on the cash 5 whats up with picking number and people not claiming some so after 180 is NCSEL going to select another number for those because it the NCSEL keeps the money thats not right!

@ PLAYER (MT) - If you take a look at comments from other players in other blog entries, you'll see that we respond to variations on your question all the time.. from players in the east, west, central, north, and south. The fact is everyone's got the same chance to win - it takes a lot of luck no matter where you live or play.

@ RUBE50 - To answer both of your questions: First - the Holiday Millions drawing hasn't been scheduled yet. Stay tuned to the Lucke Zone for more info. Second - Take a look at our other blog entries and our responses to comments about winner notification in Lucke Rewards drawings, and what other players have to say about their perceptions of who wins the lottery. No region has an advantage, everyone has the same chance of winning no matter where they live or play. We wish everyone the best of luck

@ 1ROCK2KING - VERY lucky! Even very unlikely things are always possible, that's part of what makes the lottery the lottery. Best of luck!

@ PLAYER (NB) - What do you mean?

On 1/25/2013 07:33, Lucke-Zone said

@ WILDSTAR - Everyone who has at least one entry in a Lucke Rewards drawing has the chance to win a prize. Past drawing results have no effect on the outcome of another drawing. For more info, take a look at our blog entry about this topic.

On 1/25/2013 02:34, rube50 said

all winners from east, something up. it seems strange that were so many winners from same area. it doesn,t always take a cat to smell a rat. it just seems all delay winners being announced then all from same place.

On 1/25/2013 02:16, Player said

On 1/25/2013 01:57, Player said
