Dream of a $400M Powerball

New Mexico Powerball Lottery

The New Mexico Lottery was one of the later state lotteries to emerge after selling their first tickets on April 27, 1996. Just six months later on October 20, New Mexico lottery players were treated to a whole new world of lottery jackpots as New Mexico Powerball was launched. The first ticket was sold to Governor Gary Johnson who had signed the bill to create the lottery on April 5, 1995.

However, unlike most other state lotteries, the New Mexico lottery has struggled through the years with low ticket sales and revenue. Regardless, by the NM Lottery's 15th birthday in April 2011, they had still managed to send 68, 000 students to college thanks to the New Mexico Lottery Scholarship.

The NM Lottery Scholarship was created in order to help students from the state attend college. Since its creation in 1996, the New Mexico Lottery Scholarship has awarded more than $475 million to students who have maintained a 2.5 GPA and consequently qualified for a grant.

As well as handing out that much for college tuition, the New Mexico Lottery has also given $66.5 million for school construction and repairs. This money has been left over after more than $1.03 billion has been awarded to New Mexico Lottery winners. However, the lottery's scholarship system has received criticism for being too easy and being too expensive when ticket sales are low.

But it's hard to believe that New Mexico Lottery tickets aren't flying out of the shops as there has been a number of large jackpot wins in the Land of Enchantment. Many of the have come from New Mexico Powerball including wins of $52 million, $62 million and an incredible $206 million.

This last win went to a group of nine friends from Roswell who won on the NM Powerball draw on September 27, 2008. The winning ticket was purchased from Roswell Shell No. 47 just two hours before the 8.59p.m drawing time. The jackpot had been growing since August 6 and the winners chose to receive it in cash rather than select the annuity option.

As it turns out, the Shell No. 47 store that the ticket was sold from has sold quite a few winning tickets. Eleven tickets have had New Mexico Lottery winning numbers that won prizes ranging from $700 up to $100, 000.

New Mexico Powerball has been available in the state since October 1996, but is certainly not the only big lottery around. Also on offer is Mega Millions, Hot Lotto and the two single-state games, Pick 3 and Road Runner Cash.
