New Hampshire legalises sports betting
New Hampshire has become the latest US state to legalize sports betting after Governor Chris Sununu signed House Bill 480 into law.
The bill was introduced in January and went on to secure approval in the House and Senate, but was last month subject to a number of amendments as lawmakers sought to iron out issues before passing it on to the Governor.
With Sununu (pictured) having signed off on the bill, the state Lottery Commission will now launch a request for proposal to select online and retail sports betting vendors. It is hoped that partners could be in place by January 1, 2020, with a view to opening the market by July 1.
