CONCORD, N.H. – It may be Friday the 13th on the eve of yet another snowstorm that may derail your Valentine’s Day plans. But thanks to the New Hampshire Lottery, some free Valentine’s Day bacon is at hand.

The NH Lottery’s Bacon Truck will be here in the Queen City Friday Feb. 13 at the Verizon Wireless Arena, 555 Elm St., from 5 to 7 p.m. prior to Manchester Monarchs match-up against the Springfield Falcons.

Sounds like date night, to me – (click here for Monarch tickets.)

The New Hampshire Lottery launched its first bacon-scented scratch-n-sniff ticket, the I Heart Bacon Scratch Ticket, which features a $1,000 grand prize and the priceless aroma of bacon. The new bacon-scented scratch ticket went on sale Monday, January 5. When players scratch the ticket, the ticket’s scented ink releases a generous whiff of bacon. To highlight the ticket’s launch, the New Hampshire Lottery is making the rounds, handing out free delicious, savory strips of bacon and $1 I Heart Bacon scratch tickets (while supplies last) to generate awareness for this new game in Keene, Durham, Hooksett and Manchester.

“The 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. “Every time players scratch an I Heart Bacon ticket, they will think it is time for Saturday morning breakfast, and they might just scratch and sniff their way to $1,000!”

The I Heart Bacon ticket game is easy to play. Reveal a “HEART” symbol and win the prize shown. Reveal a “BACON” symbol, and win double the prize shown. The grand prize is $1,000.
