Entry deadlines for amazing prizes coming fast

10:48 AM


Four extra chances to win are on the horizon. Let's start with the one with the entry deadline that will come first.

Powerball players have one more chance to enter the Power Cruise Second-Chance Promotion. So far, 44 North Carolina players have won the adventure of a lifetime. Everyone who has entered any of the previous drawings, and everyone who enters a Power Play ticket before midnight on Sunday, March 26 will have a chance to win in the final drawing, scheduled for March 29.

Someone is going to win $50,000 in the first drawing of the X The Cash Second-Chance Promotion. For a chance to win, enter any instant ticket for one of the games that came out in February - #534, 535, 536, and 537 - before midnight on Friday, March 31. Besides the grand prize, there will be two winners of $10,000, five winners of $5,000 and ten winners of $500. The drawing is scheduled for April 5. Any tickets entered after this deadline will be good for the next drawing.

Another drawing with a midnight March 31 deadline is the March Monthly Rewards drawing, Spring Ahead. There will be one winner of $20,000.

The Pick 3 Double Draw Promotion wraps up with the evening Pick 3 drawing on the last day of the month. Because the Red Ball appeared, there was a Double Draw last night. After players won $214,255 on the combination 1-9-7 in the first drawing, players with the numbers 0-1-4 won $114,443 more in prize money.

For more information about winner notification and announcements, and how Rewards and second-chance/promotional drawings are conducted, click here.

So if you want a chance to win, make sure to get your tickets or your points in before these deadlines. And good luck to everyone.

TO player. It's all good. That 2 day win streak was pure dumb luck. Didn't spend a dime of my money on it. I was playing on house money . I too leave in a rural area........

I guess I'm like Turbo I tell it like it is as well, been that way since I was born, let's not beat around the bushes, or where I live, the wilderness.

TURBO- You did not offend me, your bragging about "finding all the golden eggs "constantly proves ALOT and also becomes OLD, not everyone has money to spend on scratch offs such as you to risk losing it ALL which I've done more OF THAN WINNING, It is obvious where these winnings are NOT at, we get it already.This is not a "rude, derogatory LZ will email now and say otherwise LOL please this is not high school, just "blogging" my reply. We ALL want to win and my blessings to everyone.

YUK, they taste like cardboard. This buds for all you guys & gals in LZ central that try to keep us informed & put up with all this. No offense, but the NCEL main website is much more informative then this site , if players would only use it. This site has turned into the pity me/ complaint zone.Lucke-Zone RepliedWe get that anytime someone buys a ticket they're hoping to win a prize and that it can be disappointing not to. We do our best to share information that puts in perspective the chances of winning a prize big or small. We're glad there's a high level of interest. In the not-too-distant future, the players' club and main lottery website will all be under one roof, so to speak. Lots to look forward to!

Heathbar Crunch for at least one of the blog moderators would do just fine ;-)

I'm hoping to win, I'm not hoping to win it all, I just need enough to help rebuild my life. Enough to have a reliable car and a place to lay our heads. That would be a blessing and a dream come true for my son and I. #thinkingpositiveLucke-Zone RepliedThe lottery can be fun. But just a reminder that games of chance aren't a strategy for financial challenges. We wish you the best with the circumstances you're facing.

On the second chance drawing, Is the winner determine by the person with the most entries or is it randomly determined. I mean can a person with fewer entries stand a chance of winning?Lucke-Zone RepliedIt's 100% random... it's like a raffle. The more entries you make, the more chances you have to win. But any one person with even one entry has a chance to win. Good luck!

Dear NCEL, I just want to say kudos to a job very well done on your responses to players...very fair, real & helfpul! Keep up the good work!Lucke-Zone RepliedThanks for the kind words. We understand why folks are eager to ask questions and we appreciate the level of interest in the lottery :-)

Hoping for a blessing in second chance to help so many great people & family I love so much! Good luck, everyone...& may you ALWAYS think of others first! :)

How many entries are in the X the Cash drawing for 4/5?Lucke-Zone RepliedAs of Sunday night, there were 6.9 million entries in the X The Cash drawing. Good luck!

I have a question. I have ask this before and if you responded I apologize, I missed it. Are you going to make more of the blue sleeves with the new Logo? If so can you make it a little longer? 9 1/2" would accommodate the $20.00 tickets and 10 1/4 should work for the $30.00 tickets. When you fold them to fit it doesn't take long before the side seam splits. Thanks. Lucke-Zone RepliedWe will pass along your recommendations. Eventually, everything will have the new logo :-)

Power Cruise 105 entries, X The Cash 1404 so far & Spring Ahead 160 so far. I have redeemed over 296,000 pts. since subscriptions started. I haven't won anything yet. Hopefully one day I will win. A lot of people complain about it which is ridiculous because it is free and gives you another chance to win something. If you don't have the time it takes to enter your tickets then don't do it and quit complaining. Does anyone else want to post there entry amounts?

I always kind of had my suspicions about the lotto with it being rigged in many ways and I started researching it and after reading these blogs from YEARS back with 90% of bloggers agreeing it is rigged some way. how can I NOT doubt, not MY fault?I even read one Lucky Zone blog saying he was told by a store worker that certain store terminals are programmed to put in CERTAIN numbers during draw games(he asked due to him getting same quick picks same store week apart)THIS IS ON YOUR BLOG IN 2016 so I'm not making this up, this explains if TRUE Why certain areas and only 2ppl will win the jackpot on Powerball, Mega and Cash five(all states are rigged this way) with all the info you read there is no telling?! I mean its ALL over GOOGLE as well as YOUR BLOGS from concerned citizens from many years ago til now.I will stop posting now

Get tired of Lucky Zone flagging me w email regarding my post when in REALITY MORE comments are worse regarding the intergrity of the lotto ,we can not help what FACTS we see in different sources ,all I want to say is GIVE EVERYONE a chance to win something big as well instead of certain ones,we all need help in some ways than one poster commented while back ,saying "he guesses he is blacklisted now from drawings" since freedom Of speech as well as others , so I'm going to assume I'm blacklisted as well ,guess I will have to close my account now .Lucke-Zone RepliedA lottery ticket does not know who is purchasing it and random number generators don't know whose entries are whose. There is no such thing as being blacklisted and criticism of the lottery isn't censored. But rude remarks towards other players do not meet our community standards and will not be published. You are welcome to continue playing but if you aren't enjoying yourself we would understand your decision not to.

I am a student in at FSU N.C. college trying to make some extra money to help me make ends meet. I really enjoy the second chance game. I can see me winning $ 50,000.00 to pay for my college.I am a winner because I am playing the second chance games. All of them.Lucke-Zone RepliedWe wish you the best with your college studies! And we wish you the best of luck, too. But just a quick reminder that games of chance aren't a strategy to achieve a financial goal. It takes luck to be one of the lucky ones who wins. Keep up the good work in school.

When will I be a winner? I am playing all the games. I do work hard at this. I pray my time will come soon. Smile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am sorry if I have offended anyone with my comments over the years. I have been a faithfull fellow member since day one, 10/01/2012. Anyone who has been reading these blogs over the years knows I'm a player just like them. I tell it like it is. My comments have been excepted, disregarding or edited by the LZ for what ever reasons over the years. I enjoy helping my fellow members of the LZ to answers of the questions they have or short cuts to Q&A's.

Will be nice if NCEL extend the Pick 3 Double Draw Promotion for another month. Maybe switch it up and have a Pick 4 Double Draw Promotion. LZ Players & Members, your thoughts? Your feed back is welcome. Waiting on my 155 & 123 to drop with RED BALL.

Love the extra pick3 drawing. Hope someone will evaluate Illinois "fireball" on pick 3 & pick 4. Think it would be a super addition for these games. I'm in!!
