RALEIGH – A new N.C. Education Lottery scratch-off game in stores Tuesday gives players the chance to win six prizes of $1 million instantly. 20X the Money is a $10 game that starts with more than $50 million in total prizes. Players of 5X and 10X the Money tickets are already familiar with how to play the game. Revealing a “20X” symbol wins 20 times the prize shown. There are $9.5 million in multiplied prizes in the game which starts with overall odds of winning of 1 in 3.34.
Sunny Money is a seasonally-themed ticket that also goes on sale on Tuesday. The $1 game features a top prize of $1,000 and more than 82,000 prizes between $5 and $40. To win a prize, three like prize amounts must be revealed. Or, players who match two like prize amounts and a “sunglasses” symbol win double the prize shown. The game starts with more than $3.4 million in total prizes and overall odds of winning of 1 in 4.75.

Along with draw games, sales of instant tickets make it possible for the N.C. Education Lottery to raise money to benefit specific education programs in all 100 state counties. By law, lottery funds pay for teachers’ salaries in grades K-3, school construction, prekindergarten programs for at-risk four-year-olds, and need-based college scholarships and financial aid. To date, the lottery has raised more than $2.35 billion for these initiatives statewide.
