Lost and Damaged Tickets

If you lose a winning Powerball ticket, there is a chance that someone else could find it and cash it in unless you have signed the back of it. North Carolina Education Lottery rules also state that a ticket must be intact and in no way ‘mutilated, altered, reconstituted or tampered with’ in any manner. If the ticket has been sufficiently damaged that all the necessary data is not present, you will not be able to claim your prize.

Going Public

State law dictates that your name, city and county of residence must be made available to the public if you win a large prize, unless you can produce a valid protective order or Address Confidentiality Program authorization card.

Where Does the Money Go?

The state lottery was established to help the education system in North Carolina, with a promise that 100 percent of the profits would go towards supporting programs identified by the legislature. Hundreds of millions of dollars are returned to education each year, allowing schools to upgrade important facilities and also boost teaching standards throughout the state.

Out of every dollar spent on Powerball tickets in North Carolina, $0.63 is returned to players as prize money, while $0.26 goes towards education. Retailers receive $0.07, while $0.03 is used to cover administrative expenses and $0.01 is used to advertise lottery games in the state.

North Carolina Powerball Winners

Charles W. Jackson, a grandfather from Cumberland County, became the state’s biggest Powerball winner when he landed $344 million on June 1, 2019. He had played the same numbers in every Powerball and Mega Millions draw for more than two years, and his persistence paid off with a ticket bought at Carlie C’s IGA on North Main Street in Hope Mills. He said he would donate lots of money to good causes and would not let it change him. He said: “Put it this way, I will still wear jeans. But I will probably buy some new ones!”

Marie Holmes from Shallotte in North Carolina won a third of one of the largest Powerball jackpots in history when she matched the full winning line to claim a share of the $564 million jackpot on February 11, 2015. A single mother, Marie insisted that her main priority was to use the money to support her four children, one of which had cerebral palsy. She hoped to spread the word about the condition, as well as give some of her winnings to religious and charitable organizations.
