Holiday weekend is lucky for Cash 5 and Powerball

6:03 AM


The holiday weekend was also a lucky one for players who purchased four big-winning tickets.

On Friday night, a pair of lucky Cash 5 tickets spilt the $112,344 jackpot to win $56,172 each. The winning tickets were sold at the Super Kmart Express on Bridford Parkway in Greensboro and at the Chatham Street Fast Fare in Cary in Wake County.

One of Saturday's two $10,000-winning Powerball tickets was also sold in Wake County. That ticket was sold at Carlie C's IGA on New Bern Avenue in Raleigh. The other was sold across the state in Caldwell County at Tobacco to Go on Hickory Boulevard in Lenoir.

Winning ticketholders have 180 days from the date of a drawing to collect their prize money.

@ CINDY FARRIS - Here's a link you can copy & paste into your web browser for some info about winners from Conover:

Hi I'm in Conover N.C and I don't think anyone has ever won from here, I think maybe cause we are such a small town! hopeful it will happen soon!

@ VIVAIN - We appreciate your suggestion. We understand why everyone's eager to find out the results. We'll have more info to share with everyone ASAP.

On 4/03/2013 04:48, Vivain said

This just a suggestion: Why not put up " to be announced" after a name is picked for all event until it is verified, because some people will wait daily or weekly to check E-mail or sit next to phone for imput about a drawings. The thing is you have the name, but others should not wait for them to comtact HQ. May be I am wrong but don't that sound better?

@ SANDY - Every player has the same chance of winning, no better or worse depending on where you live or play the lottery.

On 4/03/2013 12:48, Sandy said

i feal the same way about winners in certain areas seem like more in some areas than others!

Just clicked on the POWERBALL numbers generator on LUCKE-ZONE. The first 6 numbers it generated, I wrote them down. My picks ain't working! So what the heck, I'll give them a try for tonight's drawing. Won't hurt nothing, unless my numbers I play all the time comes up! It's time for a NC winner!!! GOOD LUCK TO ME AND ALL WHO PLAYS TONIGHT!!!

@ CHARLIE - Players in Havelock have the same chance to win a prize playing the lottery as players in any other place in North Carolina, big or small. It's all a matter of pure random luck.

@ PLAYER (EB) + @ MAMASHEART - After a Lucke-Rewards drawing, winners are typically contacted by e-mail within 48 hours. If a winner doesn't respond to e-mail within 48 hours, phone contact is attempted. If that doesnt work the lottery sends certified mail. We understand that folks who enter drawings are eager to know the results, but there are a number of steps that must be followed before and after the drawing to ensure fairness and security.

I need to win some green, lol! Good luck everyone!

On 4/02/2013 08:07, Player said

I would like to know when do you all plan on announcing the winner to the other games like the wensday drawing because I am registered in the drawing but I don't know if I won or not?

On 4/02/2013 07:41, mamasheart said

If you are a winner on the ticket entry drawings how long before you would be notified and how long does it take to post the winners online? Like for the $2500 Wednesday drawings?

On 4/02/2013 06:35, charlie said

How about Havelock, N.c. they never get winners at all.

On 4/02/2013 05:07, Player said

@ LUCKYME38 - Compared to other $10 tickets, the $10 Monopoly game does have one less winning number space to scratch than on other tickets, but the $10 Monopoly game offers one more additional play feature compared to other tickets of the same price. Good luck on your next one!

On 4/02/2013 03:04, Lucke-Zone said

@ CASH5MAN - As long as folks who work for your company are eligible to play the N.C. Education Lottery, which it sounds like you are, your chances of winning are the same as everyone else's! Good luck!

On 4/02/2013 02:17, Lucke-Zone said

@ PLAYER (HHM) - Please see our earlier response to FATBOY... folks like you in the western part of the state have the same chance to win as anybody else!

I have entered a lot of the monopoly second chance drawings and I go in to monopoly status and it says that I only have 1 submitted. Why is it saying that when I have entered a lot of them ?

On 4/02/2013 10:18, Lucke-Zone said

@ CARMAN - The lottery doesn't "release" particular tickets. Non-winning and winning tickets are distributed at random throughout the entire printing run of each game, and nobody has any idea where a winning ticket will show up until somebody scratches it. We wish you the best of luck!

On 4/02/2013 10:17, Lucke-Zone said

@ MICHAEL - About 75% of draw game players Quick Pick their numbers... and about 75% of draw game winners are Quick Pick tickets. Which means you've got exactly the same chance to win no matter how you pick your #'s ... Good luck!

@ TEENABEENA - Welcome, thanks, and good luck!

One of these days my blessing is going to come. I am patiently waiting.

On 4/02/2013 09:45, Player said

thats good news

On 4/02/2013 09:15, TeenaBeena said

I'm a newbie to this whole thing so lets hope I get beginners luck ;) Didn't have much luck with the actual scratch offs (which is unusual for me I usually do ok on them) though I have noticed every $10 or more card I have ever bought I have lost out completely but I decided to take a chance with the monopoly tickets since they are 'second chance' tickets and well the first chance did me no luck so fingers crossed!!! I do like the website though, pretty cool set up!

Can't wait until it is my turn!

Best wishes to the latest winners.

On 4/01/2013 11:27, JAN50 said

sure would like to win one of the 2nd chance drawings. I have played everyone and so far no luck.

On 4/01/2013 10:31, michael said

Are the big winners quick picking their numbers or picking their numbers themselves?

On 4/01/2013 09:57, beansntaters said

Now that the majority of tax refunds have been issued,cashed,and spent,how about releasing all those (105,000) 100.00 winning tickets on the 5,000 a week for life game? Give us year round players a chance to recoup a little during the dry spell we went thru. The amount remaining seems to be way out of line. As always, Thanks

On 4/01/2013 09:47, cash5man said

My company does some printing for the lottery , like the big checks and displays for scratch offs.( not the scratch offs themselfs ) Does this affect my possabilty of winning the cash 5, or Power ball and Mega games if i was to win big.

On 4/01/2013 08:11, Player said

thats good you won yes we need winners in western nc i play all the time and lose something wrong with that way to go on winning

On 4/01/2013 07:13, lucky57 said

Why does the new $10 Monopoly game have only 5 winning numbers instead of 6 like all the other $10 games?

On 4/01/2013 03:49, Kim said


On 4/01/2013 03:47, turbo said

It's all good ! Everyone deserves a 2nd chance. thanx for makin it EZ.

On 4/01/2013 03:28, Lucke-Zone said

@ FATBOY71 - As we just mentioned... folks in Western N.C. have no better or worse chance of winning the lottery than anybody else living anywhere else... its all just a matter of the odds of winning playing out more often in places where more people are taking a chance to win. We wish you the best of luck!

On 4/01/2013 03:18, fatboy71 said

we need winners in western NC!!!

On 4/01/2013 02:53, Lucke-Zone said

@ 1ROCK2KING - It's not any easier to win the lottery in Raleigh than any place else... there are just more people here giving it a try :-)

On 4/01/2013 02:52, Lucke-Zone said

@ TURBO - Glad you like the Monopoly games!! And thanks for helping share good info with other players here in the Lucke-Zone :-)

On 4/01/2013 02:51, Lucke-Zone said

@ SYLVIA - At this time, North Carolina law does not allow for the lottery to offer something similar to the internet cafes.

On 4/01/2013 02:26, sylvia said

Since the internet cafes have closed down. Will the NC lottery have something like this in the near future.

On 4/01/2013 12:47, oldlady said

it was luck

On 4/01/2013 12:19, Player said

It's amazing how we never get winners in the little town of Troutman NC. God bless those who did win and congrats to the counties that always does win!

Congrats ! It was a Good Friday for 2 lucky people. By the way, I love the simplicity of the 2nd chance monopoly games. If you break it down your tickets give you a 3 fold reward. You get points,monthly 2nd chance drawings,and the super drawing is just an added Bonus! You need to collect all 4 game pieces for an entry. That is why it has a " MONOPOLY" theme.

On 4/01/2013 08:32, 1rock2king said

well, another congratulations to some more winners! maybe it won't be much longer before I will win! I keep telling my sister who lives in Raleigh to start playing! I said a lot of winners from that area wins!

On 4/01/2013 08:27, Player said

my home town Lenoir,nc nice to see someone there to win. now my new town Wilmington,nc needs some winners too
