Education Lottery reminds players of July 26 claims deadline
RALEIGH – The N.C. Education Lottery reminds its players that a deadline to claim prizes for nine instant scratch-off games is Thursday, July 26, 2012. In April, the NCEL officially announced the end of the nine games. Under NCEL policy, all instant game prizes must be claimed within ninety (90) days of the announced end-of-game date.
Claims under $600 can be made at a lottery retailer before midnight on July 26. Claims of $600 to $99,999 must be made at one of the six regional claims centers before 5 p.m. on July 26, while claims of $100,000 and above must be made at NCEL headquarters in Raleigh before 5 p.m. on that day. Claims that are mailed to the NCEL must be received within 90 days of the official end-of-game date. Postmarks will not satisfy the 90-day requirement.
