North Carolina is one of the state lotteries that take part in Lucky for Life, a multi-state lottery game. For each play, you need to select 5 numbers, each between 1-48, and a Lucky Ball number from 1-18.

Lucky for Life resembles other mult-state games like Cash4Life: you win $1,000 a day for life by matching all 6 draw numbers. Second prize, which entails $25,000 a year for life, comes after you match just 5 numbers (instead of all 6).
