CONCORD, NH — A lucky New Hampshire lottery player is about $2 million richer after matching five of the Powerball numbers and taking the Power Play option on their numbers, which doubled the prize value, according to lottery officials.

The ticket was purchased at Gomarlos Market on West Swanzey Road in West Swanzey.

The odds of matching five numbers to win $1 million playing Powerball are 11.7 million to one. The state lottery also reported a $50,000 Powerball ticket sold at the Super Shell Food Mart on Harris Road in Nashua and a $10,000 Mega Millions ticket sold at the Circle K on Lafayette Road in Seabrook.

Because there have been no winners since September, the jackpots of both Mega Millions, which will be drawn on Tuesday, and Powerball, which will be drawn on Wednesday, are increasing — Mega Millions is at $850 million, the third-highest jackpot in history, and Powerball is at $730 million, the sixth-highest.

Everyone loves bacon—and the New Hampshire Lottery marketing department is trying to capitalize’s on the region’s penchant for pig with a bacon-scented scratch ticket.

Yes, a bacon-scented scratch ticket.

The “I (Heart) Bacon” ticket was released earlier this month. It costs $1 and offers prizes up to $1,000. The lottery ran a full-court marketing press with radio spots and a Facebook contest that asked people to write an “ode to bacon” poem. Later this month, lottery workers will visit stores across the state and serve up free (real) bacon.

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

Reaction to the new tickets ranged from amusement to dismissal.

“I bought some to give as a birthday present and put them in my back pocket,” wrote Paul Morganelli on the lottery’s Facebook page. “I was driving home and since it was very cold had the seat warmer on and all of a sudden I am smelling bacon and not knowing where it came from. Then I remembered. the tickets in my seat pocket! Too funny!”

On the other hand, Leila Montalvo Kingsbury opined, “These smell crappy. Who thought of this? Waste of money.”
