New Hampshire is ready to become the latest state to launch legal sports betting in the United States. Governor, Chris Sununu, assured that everything is on track. He called WEEI, a local radio station, and discussed all the regulated betting market prospects.
New Hampshire was to introduce the legal sports betting before the NFL season, however, it was missed. But with all possibilities, it looks like that legal sports betting would be introduced before the Super Bowl. The 2020 March Madness is also on the card for New Hampshire for generating interest.
A basic framework has been finalized as the bill has been passed through all the legislature. The regulators are involved now to give it the final format. Governor, Sununu is fully supporting this legislature. As per the reports, the sports betting can become online by the end of this year, if not then by January 2020.
Massachusetts has so far halted the regulation framing. Along with New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts were part of New England’s states to introduce sports betting. Even Governor Sununu seemed baffled with the Massachusetts approach. He said he had no idea why the state has halted the process. He, however, hailed that New Hampshire is in full swing and on track. Governor Sununu has however high praise for Rhode Island for taking huge strides in sports betting since it became legal.
Rohde Island is now accepting wagers on sports. The State has already posted $2,516,060 in revenue for September. The total handle however reached $22,195,789. The revenue will be however split between the casinos and the state’s coffers. Rhode Island has already garnered $4.36m since online betting has come online. The September figure is the highest for Rhode Island. The mobile sports betting coincided with the NFL Season and that made it happen for Rhode Island.
New Hampshire will have only 10 physical locations for sports betting. There are 13 companies so far who are now pushing for the betting license in New Hampshire.
