New Hampshire Lottery Commission
Racing and Charitable Gaming


Established originally in 1964 as the first legal state-run lottery in the United States under Chapter 284:21-a of New Hampshire RSA, the New Hampshire Lottery Commission operates to benefit New Hampshire education.

Lottery games are made up of a variety of instant scratch games at price points of $1 up to $30 and a number of different draw games with top prizes ranging from tens of thousands of dollars to more than one billion dollars. Games are sold at over 1,250 businesses across the Granite State.

The game of Keno, KENO 603, operates for sale in age controlled environments such as bars and taverns in New Hampshire.

Annually, lottery ticket sales well surpass $300 million.

The Racing and Charitable Gaming Division is a department within the Lottery. This department regulates simulcast horse and greyhound racing in New Hampshire under RSA 284, Games of Chance Regulations under RSA 287-D, and Bingo and Lucky 7 Regulations under RSA 287-E as well as Fantasy Sports Regulations under RSA 287-H:1.

The Division's duties include the adjudication of hearings, the licensing of racetracks, racetrack occupations (drivers, owners, trainers, vendors, security, etc.), charitable organizations, gaming entities (operators, distributors, manufacturers, facilities, etc.), the collection of taxes and fees associated with Bingo, Lucky 7, Games of Chance, and Pari-Mutuel wagering as well as the regulations of Fantasy Sports.

Gross revenue from the Racing and Charitable Gaming Division is greater than $5 million annually.

The New Hampshire Lottery Commission was the first in the nation; now 44 states, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands have followed suit.

We take pride in setting the example of dedicating our profits, almost $2 billion to date, for public education.

When you play the lottery, everyone wins.
