The New Hampshire Lottery Commission operates and oversees the New Hampshire Lottery, which generates revenue for the state through various games of chance. Lottery players can pick from instant win and scratch-off games, as well as the lotto and other numbers games. The New Hampshire Lottery also operates the Tri-State Megabucks game in partnership with the Vermont Lottery and the Maine State Lottery, and the lottery offers Powerball drawings through its participation in the Multi-State Lottery Association. About 30% of the money generated from lottery sales is apportioned to the state's education system. The New Hampshire Lottery was established as the New Hampshire Sweepstakes in 1964.
