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.
