The first recorded lottery slips date back to the Han Dynasty in China (between 205 and 187 BC), when the government used them to finance major projects. The game is even mentioned in the Chinese Book of Songs as a game of “drawing lots or wood.” Today, many countries around the world offer official lotteries and a number of jurisdictions have scratch-off games. In the United States, the North Carolina Education Lottery is the newest state to introduce a lottery system.

North Carolina Education Lottery is the newest state to introduce a lottery system
North Carolina’s lottery system is a part of the state’s complex funding model for education. Its funding comes from federal programs, state tax revenue, and local contributions from taxable income. A new lottery program in the state, the North Carolina Education Lottery, will help raise additional funds to support public schools. The lottery’s revenue is distributed to the state legislature, which then determines how to spend the funds. Some of the money goes to prize money, retailer compensation, and other expenses.
The lottery’s online presence is driven by NPi’s NeoSphere iLottery platform. The system includes a dedicated draw games central system, NeoDraw, NeoCube data analytics, and Ignite Player Marketing services. NCEL’s online solution also includes Pollard Banknote’s playON(r) player engagement platform. This platform allows Lottery players to engage with the Lottery across various channels, including online, mobile, and print.
