CONCORD — Less than a week after a winning Tri-State “Gimme 5” ticket was sold at Bunny’s Superette in Manchester, another winning $100,000 Gimme 5 ticket was sold at Stage Convenience at 285 Stage Road in Hampstead in the drawing on April 15. The winner is the 14th top prize winner in New Hampshire since Gimme 5 launched nearly two years ago. Bunny’s Superette sold a winning Gimme 5 ticket to Robert Donaldson of Hooksett during the drawing Fri., April 10.
“Two Tri-State Gimme 5 winners in less than a week! That’s why this game is so exciting—it gives our players three chances to win $100,000 each week,” said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission. “Players, check your tickets, we are looking forward to meeting our newest winner. Let’s see if we can make it three $100,000 winners in one week during this Friday’s drawing!”
The winning numbers from the drawing on April 15 are: 2-19-29-30-32.
