COLUMBIA, SC: Due to the statewide general election on Tuesday, November 7, 2006, the South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) is prohibited from selling and validating lottery tickets. This notice is in conjunction with the South Carolina Education Lottery Act.

According to Section 59-150-210(E), a lottery ticket or share must not be sold on the date of any general or primary election; for a lottery game other than that defined in Section 59-150-20(7); or for a lottery game with corporate sponsorship.

SCEL will shut down its gaming system to prevent any online sales and validations of Pick 3, Pick 4, Palmetto Cash 5, and Powerball® tickets. No instant tickets will be sold or validated.

“This is one way we can assure both SCEL and its retailers fully comply with the law,” said SCEL Executive Director Ernie Passailaigue.

SCEL will conduct the midday and evening Pick 3 and Pick 4 drawings on Tuesday, November 7, 2006, for players who purchased the advance draw or multi-draw option.
