A new Star Trek-themed lottery game has debuted today in North Carolina.
Prizes for the new $2 scratch-off game include cash and a very special trip for two.
Cash prizes for the Star Trek lottery range from $2.00 to $20,000. Five of the $20,000 prizes will available.
Those with losing tickets can go online and enter a “second-chance” drawing, with the prize being a trip for two to the 2013 Star Trek convention to be held in Las Vegas. The trip includes airfare, five nights in a hotel, $1000 cash and two tickets to the convention.
North Carolina isn’t the only state offering Star Trek-themed lotteries. A Texas scratch-off game was introduced by William Shatner several weeks ago, and approximately ten states are offering or will offer Trek-themed lotteries.
