CONCORD — With the defending champion New England Patriots preparing to kick off the 2017 season next week, Robert Kraft joined the New Hampshire Lottery and Governor Chris Sununu to launch the 2017 Patriots' scratch ticket.
The $5 scratch ticket unveiled in front of the Statehouse on Tuesday gives buyers the chance to win up to $100,000 as well as tickets to future games.
"It's an honor to share the stage with Robert Kraft, the CEO and chairmen of the World Champion New England Patriots — the only organization that knows more about winning than the New Hampshire Lottery," said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Lottery.
This is the sixth consecutive year that the Patriots are partnering with the New Hampshire Lottery, which helps fund education with ticket sales.
"I'm told that in the six years, we've generated over $26 million in sales and netted $7 million for the state," Kraft said.
The lottery, since its inception in 1964, has raised almost $2 billion for the state.
Following the announcement of the scratch ticket, Patriots' alumni held a mini-training camp for 100 football players from the Merrimack Cardinals Youth Football League. Twenty-five Merrimack youth cheerleaders also got to participate in a mini-training camp held by two Patriots cheerleaders.
