Sports betting live in New Hampshire

2 January 2020

Sports betting is now live in New Hampshire with patrons able to bet both online and at retail locations.

The New Hampshire Lottery and partner DraftKings officially launched mobile and online sports betting in the state on 30 December.

Governor Chris Sununu placed the state’s ceremonial first legal sports wager on the New England Patriots to win the Super Bowl at a licensed restaurant alongside DraftKings co-founder and chief revenue officer, Matt Kalish, and former NFL star Rob Ninkovich.

DraftKings’ contract with the New Hampshire Lottery was approved in late November 2019 by the state’s Executive Council after being selected through a bidding process. As part of the agreement, New Hampshire will receive 50% of sports betting revenue, which will support the New Hampshire Lottery’s mission to drive funds in support of education in the state.
