New Hampshire Sports Betting

Recent news and details about sports betting in NH

New Hampshire is primed for legalized sports betting following the passing of H 480 by state’s House of Representatives.

Legislation has been in the works for a while. The final version includes licenses for up to five mobile operators and 10 retail locations. It will permit wagering for those 18 years of age and older and will allow remote registration for mobile wagering from the onset. Betting on any New Hampshire collegiate teams, or any college games in the state, is prohibited.

For the time being, in-play betting will only be available through mobile operators.

What still needs to happen?

Gov. Chris Sununu simply needs to sign H 480 into law. At that point, the Division of Sports Wagering within the state’s Lottery Commission will be free to begin initiating the various administrative processes to eventually have regulated sportsbooks operating within the state.

Projected NH sports betting launch date

Sports betting is still a Gov. Sununu signature away from official legalization within the Granite State. That’s expected to come by the end of July, at which point a likely target date for an official rollout would be prior the start of NFL season in early September.
