• NC residents will not get to play sweepstakes


    NORTH CAROLINA - Residents in North Carolina will not be able to play sweepstakes machines.

    The North Carolina Supreme Court upheld the law banning the machines in the state.

    After a challenge to the 2010 law, judges ruled the sweepstakes machines did meet the traditional definition of gambling.

    The ban will not impact the state's only casino in Cherokee.
