The New Hampshire Lottery Commission won a court victory Monday when a judge ruled a federal law applies only to bets or wagers on sporting events or contests — and not online lottery games.

The lottery commission filed a lawsuit in federal court that maintained a federal memo written last November threatened to render illegal all lottery business conducted online, including games such as Powerball and Mega Millions.
