If you're ready to play the lottery, you have only three days left. The hype is certainly building, generating lots of excitement. A commercial promoting the new North Carolina Education lottery is set to hit the airwaves this week, bringing even more attention to the games. The new games will start off with just scratch off tickets on Thursday with Powerball to follow on May 30 and Pick 5 games in the fall. Many folks we talked to in the East can't wait to try their luck at the new games, but there are still some that oppose it.
