NH Lottery games debut Mother's Day

CONCORD – Six new and/or revamped lottery games are being introduced this Mother's Day by the New Hampshire Lottery, including a new Hot Lotto Sizzler game with a $1 million jackpot, all cash and tax free.

?We pay the taxes on the jackpot prize, which means winners get the entire jackpot,? said the lottery's executive director Charlie McIntyre in a news release. ?If players want to add a little sizzle to their ticket, thy can still purchase a Sizzler feature for an extra buck. When you sizzle your ticket, you triple the amount of any nonjackpot prize you win!?

Tickets cost $1 and players can choose five numbers, 1 though 47, a Hot Ball Number 1 through 19, or choose an Easy Pick. Drawings are on Wednesday and Saturday.

?Gimme 5,? a new Tri-State game with a top prize of $100,000.

?Gimme 5 offers players the chance to get their hands on a hundred grand three times a week!? he said. ?It's a great addition to our tri-state game offerings.?

Players choose five numbers from 1 to 39, or buy an Easy Pick. If a player matches all five numbers drawn, he wins $100,000. Matching four numbers gets a player $250; three numbers, $7, and two numbers, $2. Tickets cost $1 and the drawings will take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The first drawing is next Wednesday, May 15.

The lottery is also introducing four new Fast Play games: $1 Sizzlin' Cash, win up to $400; $2 Solitaire, win up to $1,000; $2 Smokin' Hot Dice, win up to $2,000; $5 Roulette Riches, win up to $2,500.

?Fast Play games are like instant tickets without the scratching. We have a whole family of Fast Play games on sale at different prices, that offer more ways to play and more ways to win,? said McIntyre.

He said the lottery regularly reviews its games and talks with players to learn what they are looking for and how to improve the games and create a better play experience.

?Keeping the churn on our games is what we do – we know that is what our players want,? he said.
