Does every county in nc do these lotteries? I live in craven county and have never heard of a lottery for these items
Only some counties do a lottery like this. Some are online-entry, others are in-person entry. Other ABC boards will either distribute to a list or just put things on the shelf. Always worth asking how your local shops distribute hard to find bourbon!
I keep getting an error message when trying to sign up for the bourbon and whiskey lottery
They stopped accepting entries on November 21st, which is probably why you were receiving errors.
When will the November 2020 lottery winners be announced? Will the winners names be posted on line?
They emailed individual winners early last week. I didn’t win anything… did you?
Where and when can I find the lottery winners
I don’t think they are posted anywhere, but if you won you should have received an email from Wake County ABC. We at nc-whiskey.com aren’t in charge of the lotteries or associated with the ABC system in anyway… just here to provide some info.
