New Hampshire Executive Council has decided to allow the proposed deal between the New Hampshire Lottery and DraftKings. From now on, the New Hampshire Lottery will scoop up half of the gaming revenue from sports betting sales. It is expected for mobile sports betting to be launched at the beginning of next year.
The state of New Hampshire has decided to create a poll where the citizens vote about the establishment of sportsbooks and other betting venues in the area. So far, the citizens of Berlin, Claremont, Franklin, Laconia, Manchester and Somoersworth all supported the notion of betting venues being opened in their neighborhoods.
“We look forward to collaborating further with the New Hampshire Lottery to bring the DraftKings experience to sports fans in the Granite State. Our best-in-class mobile sportsbook and several retail locations throughout the state are sure to be a hit with all types of customers, as legalised sports betting continues to expand across the country,” Matt Kalish, Chief Revenue Officer and Co-founder at DraftKings, said.
