N.H. hopes to begin selling lottery tickets at Wal-Mart

New Hampshire LotteryNew Hampshire Lottery: N.H. hopes to begin selling lottery tickets at Wal-Mart

New Hampshire is looking to Wal-Mart as a possible way to help boost its lottery revenue.

Lottery Director Rick Wisler said lottery machines in Wal-Mart stores could boost sales.

Wal-Mart has resisted requests around the country to sell lottery products. But next year, Arkansas, where Wal-Mart is based, is starting its own lottery, and that has lottery officials everywhere thinking the development might encourage the retailer to change its mind.

Gov. John Lynch last week called on the lottery to examine ways to generate more revenue.

      For now maybe, but within the next couple years our tickets will be outsourced to a sweatshop in Honduras so WalMart can sell their lottery tickets for $.99.

      You can't predict random.

        I'm guessing, if the Arkansas based Walmart starts selling tickets, then a lot of the other Walmarts across the country will also start selling them.

          Well, the latest round of lotteries in the U.S. started in NH, so it might be interesting to see what happens with this.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
