It says my "balance" in "The Lamp" is $52. But it's not reflected in my regular account. So is that Balance money in The Lamp, not real? NC Lottery

Hey there, Monica! If you're a lucky winner through Online Play, you'll receive an email notifying you of your win. Prizes under $600 will automatically be deposited into your account for you to withdraw. For prizes over $600, the email notifying you of your win will contain instructions on how to claim your prize. :)

Can I play while out of town onlineNC Lottery
Hi, Stephanie! Players must be physically located within NC borders at the time of purchase to play - this is checked with geolocation from our site or app. If you're planning to go out of town, players can purchase auto-renew tickets for draw games (Powerball, Mega Millions, Lucky for Life, Pick 3, Pick 4, and Cash 5) prior to leaving, so that you can still play while out of the state! But unfortunately, Digital Instants can only be purchased while in NC.

Hi. I just won today for first time how long will it take for my deposit hits?? NC Lottery
Hi Tony, Congratulations on your win! Please know we're experiencing some delays in processing first-time withdraws for winners. After your first request, you won’t have to wait for identity verification for future requests to the same payment method/financial institution. Thank you!

Thank you for your response in the comments below. I've tried all the options and nothing works. What do I need to do to get the $$$ I won playing the online digital games?Please help. Thank you.NC Lottery
Hi, Wilhelmena! If you've submitted your first withdrawal request and uploaded the required identity verification documentation, there is nothing more to do on your end! Currently, we are experiencing a high volume of first-time requests, so it may take up to 7-10 business days for our team to review identity verification documents and approve this request. We are working to complete this process as quickly as possible, and apologize for any inconvenience caused by this delay. Rest assured, future withdrawals to the same payment method won't require you to wait for identity verification documentation approval, but we apologize for the delay you're experiencing for this first-time request.

Thought I would give these a try sense it was the ran by the state lottery boy was I wrong these things are horrible lost $500 in 5 min most I won was $54 on free spins on a $10 bet you literally win $1-$2 when you do win on a $10 bet it’s a crying shame casinos are not allowed in NC but the State lottery can literally rip people off like this no way are these even close to the odds of scratchers I scratch all the time and never lost this much money this quick NC Lottery
Hi Lory, the odds for each Digital Instant game are available on each of the game pages. You can see the odds for each prize for each ticket cost on the "Official Game Rules" link under each game "Play" button. https://nclottery.com/digital-instants

Is real $$$ paid by check or digitally to the player? If so, what is the process?Thank you.NC Lottery
Hi Wilhelmena! Players can complete withdrawal requests for their winnings and those winnings are paid to the institution of the player's choice (PayPal, ACH Banking Transfer, or VISA Debit Card) - or winners can also request a check be sent by mail to them. You can submit a withdrawal request under the Account tab on the app, or under your username in the top right corner of the desktop site, under "Withdraw". Please know for the first request, it can take our team a couple of business days to review identity verification documents - but this process will only need to be completed for the first request. :)

I agree with others. The winning odds don't seem correct.

i played the $50 in demo mode,had 10 spins but no win.when i did win it was 60 cents or 80 cents or a dollar,i may have won four bucks out of fifty.i bet $2 each.game done in 2 minutes.Boring!

11/18/2023 08:37 - Jack W.

This is definitely not for me or needed on the lottery app or page. Spend enough on the draw games. This about like the scratch off Stay Away people. Just my opinion also. ??

11/18/2023 08:23 - julia b.

I wish everyone would read the game rules on these. I have never seen payouts this low. Return to player is only 87%. It is much higher in the casinos.

11/18/2023 07:10 - Roger K.

I want to know how you get them off of here?NC Lottery
Hi, Roger! Digital Instant games can only be played on the NC Lottery website or our mobile app.
