The North Carolina Lottery is putting another game into play Tuesday.
The first $10 instant ticket game in North Carolina is reaching stores. The new game is part of a trend in the lottery industry in that it's a holiday-themed scratch-off game that officials hope will boost sales.
Lottery director Tom Shaheen says more games at $10 or above are expected, including the possibility of a $20 instant ticket game, which Shaheen says may be attractive to people who don't always play the lottery.
The new $10 game is called Merry Money. It features a colorful Christmas tree with gift boxes below. Six tickets out of more than two million for sale will be worth the top prize of $200,000.
Another game in stores Tuesday is called Carolina Greetings and it costs $2 to play. Carolina Greetings features four different game designs, which resemble Christmas gift tags.
In the state's new Pick 5 game, there's been a winner after just three days, although state officials say the player hasn't yet come forward.
