Lottery sales slow in North Carolina

The (Raleigh, N.C.) News & Observer analyzed North Carolina lottery data and found that fewer outlets and lower prizes accounted for the slow sales in the new state lottery. J. Andrew Curliss and news researcher Paulette Stiles found "the number of outlets for every resident in North Carolina is significantly behind the saturation levels of the nation's best-selling lottery states." They also noted fewer players in areas that would not receive substantial benefits from lottery revenue distributed to schools.
