Play Responsibly

The North Carolina Education Lottery’s mission is to offer fun and fair games to players and raise money to support education in our state. Since day one, the lottery has been committed to encouraging responsible play. Our games are designed to maximize the proceeds for education, while providing adults 18 years of age or older an enjoyable form of entertainment. However, we would like to encourage our players to play responsibly at all times.

As part of our commitment to promote responsible play, the N.C. Education Lottery is a sponsor of the N.C. Problem Gambling Program, created to provide and support effective problem gambling prevention, education, outreach and treatment programs throughout the state.
