NH Lottery launches bacon-scented scratch ticket

New Hampshire LotteryNew Hampshire Lottery: NH Lottery launches bacon-scented scratch ticket

Rating:

CONCORD, N.H. — The New Hampshire Lottery has launched its first scratch-and-sniff scratch ticket, the organization announced Monday.

The "I Heart Bacon Scratch Ticket" costs $1 and offers a grand prize of $1,000.

The ticket first went on sale Jan. 5.

Players get a whiff of bacon after scratching the ticket.

"The (NH) Lottery is focused on developing new and fun ways to engage customers. The I Heart Bacon scratch ticket combines two things people love: the chance to win cash and the wonderful, enticing smell of bacon," said Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission.

The lottery will hand out the scratch tickets and free slices of bacon outside the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester on Jan. 21, at the Cumberland Farms on Main Street in Keene on Jan. 23, at the Durham Marketplace on Jan. 24 and at the Hooksett Welcome Centers on Jan. 30.

Is the payout percentage going to be less because of this dumb gimmick?

Is some of the money going to pay off a patent or licensing agreement?

      The followers of the profit moemoe are not going to be scratching this one,  or should we expect protests?

      What?

          I always found it ironic that N.H. has "Live Free or Die" on their license plates...plates that are made by prison inmates.

                  A ticket smelling like bacon doesn't make me want to buy one. Maybe they should make one that smells like money. Wink

                      Excellent!

                      If one of them played one and it was a winner, would they dare cash it in?

                      Scared

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

                      Lep

                      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.

                        Just you wait for some silly lawsuit about my " Kid ate the ticket because of the bacon smell and had to be rushed to hospital. .etc etc"

                             The Hoosier Lottery had a chocolate scented scratch off out last year. I played it and found it quite difficult to scratch. I dont know if it was because of the scented latex or what.

                            Think amongst Chaos. Play in Order.
