About the New Hampshire Lottery

The New Hampshire Lottery started in 1964, making it the US’ oldest legal lottery. The New Hampshire Lottery Commission generates funding for state education programs. Thus far, it has raised almost $2 billion for public education and paid out over $4.4 billion in prizes.

New Hampshire Lottery Tickets

You may buy tickets for New Hampshire Lottery games at any of the 1,400+ authorized retailers all over the state. Some draw games can be played online. You can also play instant games through the iLottery platform.

Can I buy NH Lottery tickets online?

Yes, but only for Powerball and Mega Millions. New Hampshire was the first state lottery to allow players to buy Powerball tickets through a mobile app. It’s also one of the few lottery commissions that allows people to buy tickets for the Powerball and Mega Millions draw games online or through mobile. All you need to do is register for a free New Hampshire iLottery account.

NH Lottery Tickets Payment Methods

New Hampshire allows players to buy tickets using cash, debit card, PayPal, or bank transfer. Retailers have the final say over which payment methods they accept, but all these are available if you’re buying tickets through the New Hampshire Lottery website.

New Hampshire Lottery Games and Drawing Schedules

Lucky for Life

New Hampshire is part of the multi-state Lucky for Life lottery, alongside 20+ other states like Montana, Delaware, and Kansas.

To play Lucky for Life, you must select 5 numbers from 1-48 and a Lucky Ball number from 1-18. You must match all 6 winning numbers to win the jackpot, which is $1,000 a day for life. To win the second prize, which is $25,000 a year for life, you must match all 5 regular numbers but not the Lucky Ball.

Lucky for Life draws take place every Monday and Thursday.

Tri-State Megabucks

New Hampshire shares this Megabucks draw game with Maine and Vermont. The jackpot starts at $1 million and rolls over until somebody wins. There’s also a second prize fixed at $30,000 per draw. The game supposedly offers the best odds out of all three participating states’ local lottery games.

To play, you’ll have to pick 5 numbers from 1 to 41, as well as a Megaball number from 1 to 6. Matching all of the winning draw numbers wins you the jackpot. To win second prize, you must match all 5 main draw numbers but not the Megaball.

Tri-State Megabucks draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday.

Gimme 5

Gimme 5 is a multi-state draw game that runs three times per week. Aside from the New Hampshire Lottery, Gimme 5 also sees play through the Maine and Vermont lotteries.

To play, you must select 5 numbers from 1-39. Matching all 5 numbers will win you a share of the jackpot, which is fixed at $100,000.

Gimme 5 draws are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Tri-State Pick 4

The New Hampshire Lottery also runs a multi-state Pick 4 game with twice-daily games and a fixed jackpot of $5000 for each draw. Like most Pick 4 games, your choice of playstyle determines your maximum possible winnings.

To play, you must pick 4 numbers, each from 0-9. You must then select a playstyle and a draw (morning, evening, or both). Matching all 4 winning numbers in exact order wins you the highest jackpot ($5000).

You can choose from the following playstyles:

  • Straight: You must match the winning numbers in the exact order.
  • Box: You can match the winning numbers in any order.
  • Straight/Box: You can match the winning numbers in exact or any order. This costs a minimum of $1 per ticket.
  • Front/Middle/Back Pair: Instead of picking 4 numbers, you must pick 2 and a type of pair to play. Depending on the type of pair you selected, these numbers must match the first, middle, or last 2 winning numbers in exact order.
  • Single Digit: Instead of picking 4 numbers, you must pick 1 and a position (among the 4 possible winning digits). You win if your number matches the winning draw number in your chosen slot.

Pick 4 draws are held twice daily at midday and in the evening.

Tri-State Pick 3

Like the Pick 4 draw game, the Pick 3 lottery is a multi-state game with two draws per day (one at midday and one in the evening). Each draw carries a fixed jackpot of $500. Your chosen playstyle determines your maximum possible winnings.

To play, you must select a number from 000 to 999. You must then choose a playstyle and bet value. To win the highest jackpot ($500), you must match the winning draw numbers in exact order.

You can choose from the following playstyles:

  • Straight: You must match the winning numbers in the exact order.
  • Box: You can match the winning numbers in any order.
  • Straight / Box: You can match the winning numbers in any order or in exact order.
  • Front or Back Pair: You pick 2 numbers instead of 3. Depending on your chosen pair type, your numbers must match either the first 2 or the last 2 winning numbers in exact order.
  • Single Digit: Instead of picking 3 numbers, you must pick 1 and a position (among the 3 possible winning digits). You win if your number matches the winning draw number in your chosen slot.
