— North Carolina drivers will soon have a visual reminder that the state lottery is up and running.

On Tuesday, the state Lottery Commission approved the company that will operate its new digital billboards. The billboards will mainly be used when Powerball gets under way next month, and they will automatically update with the latest jackpot amount.
