History of the New Hampshire Lottery
You never get anywhere if you're not persistent, and persistent is exactly what Representative Larry Pickett was. Over the course of 10 years, he proposed five separate bills that would establish a sweepstakes to raise money for education. Time after time, he was defeated - but he never gave up. In 1963, his efforts paid off when a bill establishing a sweepstakes was passed and eventually signed into law. Tickets went on sale on March 12th, 1964.
Powerball tickets went on sale in 1995 and the state joined Mega Millions in January 2010. Over $1.6 billion has been allocated to educational initiatives in New Hampshire since the lottery began all those years ago, and that number will only continue to grow.
New Hampshire Lottery players must be at least 18 years old.
