TIC TAC TOE GONE WILD, TRIPLE TRIPLER AND FIRECRACKER CASH EXPLOSION HEADED TO STORES
"These games will have higher prize payouts than previous games," said
Tom Shaheen, NCEL executive director. "We have been able to add
more prizes as a result of unclaimed prizes from previous games and
savings in operating expenses.
It's all about seeing triple on the new $3 game called "Triple Tripler." The
number of times a player uncovers a "3" will determine if the prize could be
increased as many as three times within that game. There are over
390,000 prizes including five top prizes of $60,000 for a total of
$5.1 million in prizes.
"Firecracker Cash Explosion" is a $2 game that is designed in the patriotic spirit of July 4th. Players get two chances to win on each ticket. If the player uncovers two like symbols plus a firecracker symbol they will win triple the prize shown for that game. In this game there are over 1.7 million winning tickets with more than $7.4 million in total prizes including eight top prizes of $21,000. # # # 100% of the North Carolina Education Lottery net proceeds are used for pre-kindergarten programs for at risk youth, reduction of class size in early grades, school construction and college scholarships for need-based individuals.
