North Carolina Powerball Powerball NC

The NC Lottery is 1 of 47 US State Lotteries & District Lotteries that offer the Powerball game – in this particular case the NC Powerball – as part of its overall portfolio of lottery games.

Powerball is a Multi-State USA Lottery that is run by the Multi State Lottery Association –  MUSLand is one of the largest lottery games in the world having produced a record jackpot of US$ 1.85 BILLION in January 2016. This massive sum is the largest lotto jackpot ever won to date in the history of jackpot lottery games and easily beat the Mega Millions March 2012 record of US$ 656 MILLION.

The very first Powerball draw took place on April 22nd 1992 with 16 USA Lottery companies – who were all members of the MUSL – taking part when the game changed its format and name from Lotto America which had started on February 13th 1988.

North Carolina Powerball tickets were first sold back on May 30th 2006 when the North Carolina Lottery became the 31st member to join the MUSL – Multi State Lottery Association – who run & syndicate the game across the USA.

NC Powerball How it Works

The North Carolina Powerball works in the same way as the Powerball game works in all the States and Districts in the US that offer the game.

Jackpots start off at US$ 40 Million and ROLLOVER after each draw when the top prize is not won – rising in size every time by at least US$ 10 Million producing some massive jackpot figures.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the NC Powerball game from 2 separate drawing machines – firstly 5 numbers from 59 white balls are drawn and then 1 number (the Powerball) from 35 red balls.

Draws for the North Carolina Powerball Lottery take place twice every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10.59pm EST.

There is also a Powerball prize multiplier facility available when playing that dramatically increases the size of a Powerball win and is called Powerball POWERPLAY.
