Play Responsibly

The North Carolina Education Lottery's primary purpose is to provide a fun and entertaining way to raise money for Education in North Carolina. Our games are designed to maximize the proceeds for education while providing adults 18 years or age or older an enjoyable form of entertainment. However, we would like to encourage our players to play responsibly at all times.

To reinforce this message, the North Carolina Education Lottery is a sponsor of the Problem Gambling Helpline created to provide assistance and information to those who feel they may have a gambling problem. If you or someone you know needs assistance to understand warning signs or obtain additional information, please contact the following resources:
