Lottery ticket worth $12.5M sold in N.H.

New Hampshire LotteryNew Hampshire Lottery: Lottery ticket worth $12.5M sold in N.H.

CONCORD, N.H. — The New Hampshire Lottery says someone bought a Tri-State Megabucks Plus lottery ticket worth $12.5 million.

The lottery agency says the jackpot is the biggest for a single ticket in the game's 25-year history. The jackpot hit $16.4 million in January 1992, but there were two winning tickets.

The winning ticket for Wednesday's drawing was sold at Top of the Hill in Dalton.

The winner has the choice of receiving the prize in annual installments over 30 years or taking a lump sum payment of approximately $7.8 million before taxes.

The owners of Top of the Hill, John and Merelyn Richard, will receive a $30,000 commission for selling the winning ticket.

That'll be one happy New Hampshironian.

Or would it be New Hampshirinian?

New Hampshirite?

New Hampshirina?

New Hampshirooney?

They really should change the name of that state. This has been unnecessarily confusing people for years.

Maybe Vermont should just annex them so we would know what to call them - Vermontoonians.

        Hey I am waiting to play this new "Mondo Millions" game I see in the Lottery Ticket movie! Amazing the MM ticket in the movie looks a little too much like a nj Mega Millions ticket!

            You could be right. It could very well be a Massachusettsaroonian or a Connecticutaholic.

            That could save the news media the embarrassment of trying to figure out what to call somebody from New Hampshire.

              Slow news day?

              "...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace
