(Scroll down for video) Pork lovers in New Hampshire, are rejoicing after the state lottery announced that it started selling scratch-off tickets that smell like bacon.

The state lottery has released the “I Heart Bacon” tickets this month, with a grand prize of $1,000.

To promote the new tickets, the New Hampshire Lottery will be driving around a bacon truck, handing out free smoked bacon and tickets in Keene and Durham.

The lottery commission stated on its website that the odds of winning at least a dollar are one in four. Last week alone, the New Hampshire Lottery sold around 700,000 in I Heart Bacon tickets, making it the best selling $1 ticket in history.

“The New Hampshire Lottery is focused on developing new and fun ways to engage customers,” New Hampshire Lottery Commission Executive Director Charlie McIntyre said.

“The I Heart Bacon scratch ticket combines two things people love: the chance to win cash and the wonderful and enticing smell of bacon,” he added.
