EDUCATION LOTTERY TO HELP FIGHT RECESSION ANNOUNCES "INSTANT TAX REBATE" SCRATCH-OFF
RALEIGH – The North Carolina Education Lottery (NCEL) is going to help keep the economy from going into a recession. The North Carolina Education Lottery is introducing a new “INSTANT TAX REBATE” scratch-off game in conjunction with the issuing of “Tax Rebate” checks from the federal government.
The federal tax rebates in North Carolina will total billions of dollars and we need to insure that money is not wasted on frivolous spending but goes to supporting education. Since education is the ultimate economic development tool, this will spur the economy in North Carolina and help keep the country out of a recession.
This instant scratch-off ticket will have over $350 million in total cash prizes, which is a spectacular average of over $100 prize payout per household!
If we can convince half of the households in North Carolina to spend half their federal tax rebate on this game we estimate that the NCEL will gross over $1 billion. If the federal government would do the right thing and give a rebate to poor people and lower income families, who don’t pay taxes, it would make our job easier as they are our target demographic (we also target mathematical illiterates and people not in full possession of their senses). If this would happen the Sky’s the limit for potential sales!
The $300 million “INSTANT TAX REBATE” game is a $10 ticket with top prizes of $10 million. Players who scratch their way to win the $10 million prizes will be paid in installments of $500,000 over 20 years. There are also over 500,000 prizes between $50 and $500 and over 5,000 prizes from $1,000 to $50,000.
These tickets will be available in stores and check cashing centers when government tax rebate checks start arriving in lottery ticket consumers mailboxes!
