Over 1.7 billion dollars to education and counting
When it comes to our kids' education, our expectations are high. And at a time when states are looking for new ways to generate revenue to support quality education, expectations are even higher. That is why the New Hampshire Lottery has always been committed to education, and ever since 1964, its profits have been earmarked for state education funding. So far, of the more than $5 billion in sales and other earnings, more than $1.7 billion has been given to New Hampshire schools, and $3.2 billion has been paid out in prizes.
Approximately 26 cents of each dollar you spend on Lottery tickets goes back to the state as aid to education and helps to provide a brighter future for all of our kids. When you play the lottery, everyone wins.
