Lottery would see name change in NC House bill

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Some lawmakers want to remove the word “education” from the North Carolina Education Lottery and restrict advertising for the games.

Legislation filed Tuesday in the House would change the name to simply the “North Carolina State Lottery.”

Nearly all of the state’s profits for the games have gone to education-related initiatives since the lottery began in 2005. Some legislators say the name is misleading because the money generated is a very small percentage of overall education spending.

The bill also would bar lottery advertising at high school and college sporting events and require ads to disclose the odds of winning the largest prize, not just the average overall odds of winning.

The measure also would shift decisions on new games from the lottery commission to legislators.
