FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What NC Lottery drawing is tonight?

The NC Education Lottery features several different games. Each has different rules and drawing days. Here is a breakdown of when drawings occur:

 Mega Millions

The Mega Millions drawing is every Tuesday and Friday. The game allows you to pick five numbers from 1 to 70 and one mega ball from 1 to 25. The grand prize rolls over and updates regularly on the lottery website. You can win the main jackpot by matching all five white balls and the one yellow mega ball. The second prize always is $1 million and pays out by matching the five white balls. If you want to increase the prize, you can wager an additional $1 per play in what's known as a Megaplier.

Powerball

The Powerball drawing occurs three times a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Powerball allows you to pick five numbers from 1 to 69 and one Powerball number from 1 to 26. Powerball jackpots regularly update in between each drawing. The Powerball offers a $1 million prize for correctly guessing the five white balls. You can win the Powerball top prize if you correctly guess all of the balls. However, you can use the Double Play or Power Play feature for an additional $1 per play, increasing your overall odds.
