CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – The head of New Hampshire’s Lottery Commission says he’d like another shot at getting the state to approve $30 lottery tickets.

Rick Wisler says sales of $10 and $20 tickets are up 37 percent.

Wisler says the lottery has no plans to eliminate the cheaper $1 or $2 tickets, but he wants another shot at creating the $30 game, which lawmakers defeated last year.

Wisler says players want to win larger prizes, but do to do, he has to sell higher-priced tickets.
