Four new instant scratch-off games go on sale Tuesday including the lottery’s first limited-edition game, Carolina Limited. The other new games are Ultimate Crossword, Cold Hard Cash, Carolina Limited and Tic Tac Cash.

Fans of extended-play style games should be on the lookout for the new $5 game Ultimate Crossword. It starts with five top prizes of $100,000 and more than $9.7 million in total prizes.

Cold Hard Cash is another $5 game that starts with five $100,000 top prizes and more than $14 million in total prizes.

Carolina Limited is unique in that the entire ticket supply will be shipped to retailers at the game’s launch, making it a limited-edition game. The $2 game begins with more than $6.3 million in total prizes, including more than 38,000 prizes from $50 to $500.

Tic Tac Cash, a $1 game, begins with 15 top prizes of $4,000 and more than 1.3 million winning tickets.

So which of these new games would you like to try first?

The Lucke-Zone wishes you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving full of fun and, of course, luck.

@ ROB/BOB Yes. For example, the new $1 Tic Tac Cash game has about 6.4 million tickets while the new $2 Carolina Limited game will have about 4.8 million tickets.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Hope the new tickets are good to me-I still need money to help my daughter get a van since someone pulled through a stop sign and totaled hers.

On 11/27/2013 04:21, Lucke-Zone said

@SUSAN Sorry to hear about the accident. That was some bad luck. Hope your daughter is OK. Here's hoping you have some good luck with our new games.

Has anyone noticed the decrease in the number of top prizes since the lottery first began? Most of the games have 3 top prizes for the entire state, 100 counties...go figure.

On 11/27/2013 06:42, Stacks336 said

I wanna try the ultimate Crossword!

On 11/27/2013 06:51, Susan said

Thank you! Other than my daughter's bruises from air bags and steering wheel and her 2 yr old biting his tongue(all 4 kids in car seats) they are fine. Maybe the lottery can work in child safety by having drawing for items like car seats and booster seats, bikes with bike helmets included, etc. They really do protect kids in accidents.

Cold Hard Cash sounds good to me! the cold and hard,plus the CASH is what got my attention, cause it's COLD outside and it's HARD to win CASH!! Just Winning the BIG DOLLAR AMOUNT on the scratch off's is hard! Just a 100,000 dollar win would be so sweet! That would make my day! 68,000 after taxes, will suit me just fine! I won't claim it until next year thought! for Tax purpose!! so good luck to all, and have a great TURKEY DAY!!!!! PLUS Have a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Hi, I just entered a bunch of mega million 2nd chance drawings and I thought we were suppose to get extra points for entering these on Monday? It does not appear that I received any extra points. Thanks

On 12/02/2013 11:53, Player59 said

is monopoly second chance over for 5 &10 dollar tickets

On 12/02/2013 12:37, Lucke-Zone said

@ PLAYER59 - The deadline to enter the final second-chance drawings for the $5 and $10 MONOPOLY games was 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30

On 12/02/2013 12:38, Lucke-Zone said

@ NOEL - The "Mega Mondays" was a bonus promotion that ran four Mondays in a row through Nov. 25... Mega Millions tix are back to their usual value now. For more info, you can copy & paste this link: http://bit.ly/16GqSWW

On 12/02/2013 12:42, Lucke-Zone said

@ SOPHIA - Game-specific second chance drawings and Lucke-Rewards drawings are conducted using a random number generator, under the supervision of an auditor, according to specific security procedures.

On 12/02/2013 12:48, Lucke-Zone said

@ REDCIANNA - Stay tuned on that! ;-)

On 12/02/2013 01:02, Lucke-Zone said

@ MABEL - Although there are many other places in North Carolina where more people are taking a chance to win than the relatively small population of Halifax County, we've had plenty of winners there because the odds of the winning are the same for any player, anywhere. Our first Powerball jackpot winner was from Halifax, and we've had many more winners since. Here's a link you can copy & paste for more info: http://bit.ly/1c7djl4

On 12/02/2013 01:04, Lucke-Zone said

@ RAGTOPP69 - As long as the lottery's "Bucks" family games are in stores, more prizes will be added back in periodically :-)

On 12/02/2013 01:05, Lucke-Zone said

@ ROZ - Each game is different. Some have fewer but larger top prizes, or second-chance prizes, or larger "second-tier" prizes, or an even larger amount of smaller prizes. There is a variety of games to choose from, hopefully some have the features you like. The lottery pays out a higher % in prizes today than it did when it began.. good luck to you! :-)

On 12/02/2013 02:33, Barbie said

I will try them all.

On 12/02/2013 03:05, JEWEL said

mo money for us all to win,good luck.

On 12/04/2013 11:57, Player said

'oreo' to lisajo13 in the rolesville area don't quit the mega million game all you have to do is spend 5:00 a ticket,you will have a better chance than the 1:00 dollar ticket,1-75! my wife and i usally spend between 25 dollar to a 100 dollar not know more just the 5 dollar ticket.merry christmas and happy 2014 year!

On 12/05/2013 08:41, luckless said

Wonderful, My favorite retailer received NO "limited edition" tickets, and there were NO winners of the Cash 5 extra "drawings" east of I-95 and out of all those "drawings" I can only find one winner that didn`t live west of I-95.

On 12/06/2013 01:11, Player said

When I entered the drawings I update the number of entries to 2 or more, but I'm only emailed one entry #Do I still have multiple entries? Thanks

On 12/09/2013 11:43, Player said

How can you have two of the same scratch off games at the same time 2$ DOUBLE MATCH. how does a person know what game they are buying game launched in May #262 or game launched in Oct #392 IS THIS EVEN LEGAL ????

On 12/09/2013 02:37, Lucke-Zone said

@ LUCKLESS - Due to the nature of the way a limited edition game works, not all retailers could get the game. As for geography, we've talked about this many times so now you know that most people who live in North Carolina and most lottery retailers are indeed west of I-95. That doesn't mean individuals on either side of the highway have a better or worse chance to win, it just means MORE people west of I-95 are taking a chance to win. The lottery can only operate because it is fair to everyone who plays.

On 12/09/2013 02:43, Lucke-Zone said

@ PLAYER (DEENOW) - The number you saw in your e-mail is like a receipt/transaction #... it doesn't represent how many entries you made in the drawing, just that you entered on a particular occasion. Make sense? :-)

On 12/09/2013 04:53, Lucke-Zone said

@ PLAYER (PSHIELDS) - In this case, game numbers had to be changed because going forward our tickets have barcodes that enable them to be scanned by self-service ticket checkers. All of the lottery's practices are reviewed and audited to make sure they're fair to everyone :-)

On 12/09/2013 09:55, Player said

I think that than the same amount of prizes would be available to win would they not be??? how many self serve checkers do you have against how many lottery agents do you have, no state I mean no state has ever ever had two of the same game running at the same time. Please Again is this even legal??? Answer that please on this or privately. We ALL Just want a fair chance at winning. Are you saying all are from the same game? there is no two of the same games running?? please answer that clearly?? PLEASE BE CLEAR, PLEASE. Just so every one knows I did hit a 100$ winner on the holiday 10$ ticket in Roxboro. My family needed it. My family does not need me buying tickets seemed fixed two of the same game??????? what is that?????

On 12/10/2013 01:18, Lucke-Zone said

@ PLAYER (PSHIELDS) - Please e-mail playerinfo@lotterync.net with your concerns so that it can be routed to the right person who can e-mail you back with all the details you're asking about.
