"While we are still waiting for the weather to warm up, Mega Millions is on fire with a $377 million jackpot," said Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery. "Players are racing to retailers to get in tomorrow night's drawing. Here's hoping a lucky New Hampshire player picks a big winner to become our newest multimillionaire and our first Mega Millions jackpot winner!"
