No big Powerball winners in NH, but tidy sums taken

CONCORD — Thanks to the hype generated by two huge Powerball jackpots, lottery tickets sales topped $9.3 million in New Hampshire last week, up from $6 million, state Lottery officials said.

And while the winning, $590 million Powerball ticket was sold in Florida, New Hampshire did have its share of winners in the Saturday Powerball drawing:

• A $1 million ticket sold at Bunny’s Superette in Manchester.

• A $1 million ticket sold at the Exit 3 Travel Stop in Portsmouth.

• A $10,000 ticket sold at Sally’s Food Market in Nashua. Merquiades Vidal of Nashua claimed the prize.

• A $10,000 ticket sold at Circle K on Pleasant Street in Berlin.

• A $10,000 ticket sold at Cumberland Farms in Rochester. Jessica Meyer of Cape Neddick, Maine, claimed the prize.

Lottery ticket sales meant nearly $500,000 in commissions to retailers, and $2.4 million for education funding in New Hampshire.
