North Carolina is quite new to the lottery system, only being established in 2005, known as the North Carolina Education Lottery. The lottery has been a controversial topic in North Carolina since its founding. Being known as a “Bible Belt” state, North Carolina was the only state on the east coast that did not have a lottery system, and was decided on a 24-24 vote, with Lieutenant Governor Perdue casting the tiebreaking vote for a lottery system. This resulted in Governor Mike Easley signing the North Carolina State Lottery Act and the 2005 Appropriations Act. Though still fairly new, North Carolina still features the Mega Millions and Powerball and three games that local citizens can enjoy on a daily basis.
