This follows a multi-state e-instant $5.8m record jackpot.

Instant Win Gaming (IWG), a leading supplier of e-instant games to NASPL and WLA-member lotteries, congratulates the New Hampshire Lottery on joining the company’s multi-state e-instant progressive, Mega Money Jackpots.

The New Hampshire Lottery launched Jackpot Spectacular, its first game in the Mega Money Jackpots-linked progressive pool, for players in the Granite State on 24 April. New Hampshire joins Pennsylvania and Virginia in offering Mega Money Jackpots linked games.

Additionally, IWG congratulates the Virginia Lottery along with its Mega Money Jackpots player who won a record-setting $5.8m prize. The win sets another new US ilottery record for the largest e-instant prize.

Mega Money Jackpots launched in July 2023 and, over the past nine months, the game has created eight millionaires. Since launch, more than 240 players across the participating lotteries have won mega and minor jackpots totaling more than $20m.

The amount and frequency of these prizes showcases the excitement of IWG’s Mega Money Jackpots. To achieve this, selected e-instants from participating lotteries each contribute a small percentage of the sales to fund the two progressive prize tiers, with IWG administering the settlement of jackpot prize monies on a turnkey basis.

The multi-state e-instant progressive jackpot is powered by IWG’s InstantJackpots. Since all functionality is contained within IWG’s InstantRGS (remote game server), no development support is required by a lottery’s ilottery platform provider. Additionally, new lotteries can join the system regardless of their ilottery platform provider.

Charlie McIntyre, Executive director at New Hampshire Lottery, said: “Our industry has a proud track record of collaborating across state lotteries. We’re excited to join Mega Money Jackpots and to bring the excitement of its outsized prizes to our players. We know that our contribution will further enhance the game for everyone involved and we look forward to creating some new millionaires here in New Hampshire.”

Rhydian Fisher, CEO at IWG, said: “Kudos to the team at New Hampshire Lottery. By joining Mega Money Jackpots, collectively we can award even more million-dollar prizes to lottery players. Not only is the game frequently creating new millionaires, but it has also been a leading catalyst for new player signups. Fingers crossed that some new millionaires will be created in New Hampshire very soon.”
