State v. Spruill, 237 N.C. App. 383 (Nov. 18, 2014)

There was sufficient evidence that the defendants conducted a sweepstakes through the use of an entertaining display, including the entry process or the revealing of a prize in violation of G.S. 14-306.4. The court rejected the defendants’ argument that because the prize was revealed to the patron prior to an opportunity to play a game, they did not run afoul of the statute.
