NC Education Lottery Sends 93 Million To The State

The North Carolina lottery has given more money to state education programs, bringing the total to more than $900 million since the first tickets were sold in 2006.

Lottery executive director Tom Shaheen said Tuesday the lottery has sent $93.5 million to a dedicated state fund as part of the lottery's regular quarterly transfer to the state.

State law requires the net proceeds be used for class-size reduction and pre-kindergarten initiatives, public school construction and college scholarships.

The lottery has sold more than $2.7 billion in tickets since the
games began.
