NC Education Lottery Unveils a New Ticket with a Lot of “Flair”
RALEIGH- The North Carolina Education Lottery (NCEL) today unveiled a new sports-themed instant scratch-off ticket featuring world-renowned pro wrestler Ric Flair. The NCEL and “The Nature Boy” teamed up on the new game that will be available at lottery retail locations statewide starting Tuesday, Sept. 22.
“All of us at the NCEL are thrilled about this partnership and the potential it has for bringing in a different group of players, which could result in increased sales,” said Tom Shaheen, NCEL executive director. He added, “We are always looking for ways to appeal to new players so we can maximize sales and generate as much money as possible for education.”
During the event that took place at the NHRA Carolina Nationals at zMAX Dragway, Flair expressed that education is important to him as well. To help get the word out about the ticket and to help the NCEL raise money for education, Flair said that he will make appearances at upcoming fairs around the state.
“Wooooooo!” is a $5 scratch-off ticket. The game features eight top prizes of $100,000 and over 500,000 prizes between $10 and $200. Players have 16 chances to win on each ticket, which corresponds with Flair’s 16 championship belts.
