CONCORD, N.H. — The New Hampshire Lottery says the new electronic bingo-style keno game has exceeded the $1 million sales mark in the state.

Keno launched on Dec. 15 and is on sale at 45 restaurants and bars statewide.

Revenue from keno is used to fund full-day kindergarten in the state.

Seven cities approved keno last year. Keno is expected to come up at a number of town meetings this year.
