RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The N.C. Education Lottery is taking a dozen instant scratch-off games out of circulation at the end of the month.

A statement from lottery officials said all instant game prizes must be claimed within 90 days of the announced end-of-game date of Feb. 29. Therefore, all prizes associated with the games must be claimed on or before May 29.

Claims of $600 up to $99,999 must be made at one of the six regional claim centers before 5 p.m. that day, while claims of $100,000 and above must be made at lottery headquarters before 5 p.m. on that day as well.

Claims that are mailed to the NCEL must be received within 90 days of the official end-of-game date. Postmarks will not satisfy the 90-day requirement.
