March 12, 1964- New Hampshire becomes first US State to run a Lottery in the 20th Century

Begun in 1964, the New Hampshire Lottery (originally known as the New Hampshire Sweepstakes) is the oldest US mainland-based lottery. (The Puerto Rico Lottery has been in operation since 1934.) New Hampshire's games include Mega Millions, Powerball, Hot Lotto, and numerous scratch tickets.

New Hampshire is part of the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), which it joined in 1995. It is also a member of the Tri-State Lottery in northern New England; its games are always drawn in New Hampshire.

All New Hampshire Lottery games require players to be at least 18 years old.
