A new version of our Wheel of Fortune scratcher starts today, an extra mid-May offering, with four top prizes of $200,000 and eight chances to win VIP trips to L.A. where you can compete for a $1 million prize.
 
Longtime co-host of Wheel of Fortune, Vanna White, is helping the lottery get the game started with an appearance in North Carolina on Friday. White will meet Wheel of Fortune fans at the Charlotte Motor Speedway just before she serves as grand marshal of the NCEL 200.
 
Just like the TV game show, the lottery’s Wheel of Fortune game has proved popular with lottery players here. It is the third time that the lottery has offered a Wheel of Fortune-themed game.
 
The $5 game begins today with more than $13 million in prizes, including four top prizes of $200,000.
 
You can also enter all Wheel of Fortune tickets into second-chance drawings for the chance to win a trip for two to Los Angeles. Eight trips will be awarded. The trips include round-trip airfare to Los Angeles, four nights’ deluxe accommodations, a tour of Sony Studios, a bus tour of Hollywood, studio audience tickets for a taping of the Wheel of Fortune show, and tickets to a Big Money Spin Event where up to $1 million can be won.
 
Wheel of Fortune fans can meet White during her appearance in Charlotte. At the race, White will get to say the most famous words in racing, “Drivers. Start your engines!”  Her events include:
  • Meeting fans besides the Education Lottery’s booth at the speedway’s Fan Zone from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
  • Greeting NASCAR drivers as they are introduced to NASCAR fans.
  • Performing grand marshal duties to help get the truck race started.
Good luck with those Wheel of Fortune tickets. It’s great to have Vanna White visiting North Carolina this week. We look forward to sending eight lucky North Carolinians to L.A. to watch White turn those letters on that giant letter board.

If I may inquire-what would this prize package be worth as far as being taxable? Thank you.NC Lottery
Hi there Jim, For this second-chance prize, the lottery covers applicable taxes. Does that answer your question?
