Online Sports Betting New Hampshire

New Hampshire has found its groove and moved into pole position in the race to launch online sports betting in the region of New England.

With a legislative framework now set in stone, The Granite State have joined Illinois, Tennessee, Montana, Iowa, and Indiana in legalizing sports betting in 2019.

Notably, with both Massachusetts and Connecticut faltering with their respective bids to pass the finish line, NH is set to become the center of sports gambling in the New England region.

Timescale wise, we’re looking at July 1 2020 as a potential launch date with bidding for licences due to kick-off at the turn of the year.

Read on for the latest regarding sports betting in New Hampshire.

Sports betting in New Hampshire will soon be a thing. But how does this affect you as a budding sports bettor? Here’s the very latest:

The fulcrum of sports betting in New England?

You wouldn’t have had Rhode Island and New Hampshire down as frontrunners to welcome sports betting to New England. Not with Massachusetts and Connecticut seemingly intent on taking the initiative.

The hub of sports betting in the North-West

Yet with efforts stalling in MA and CT and, most recently, in Maine, it appears New Hampshire, in tandem with Rhode Island, have the sports betting floor to themselves, for this year at least.

As it stands, New Englander’s can wager at the two casinos active in Rhode Island. But with The Ocean State still some way off introducing mobile wagering, New Hampshire appear destined to cash in on attracting sports bettors from bordering Massachusetts and Connecticut, as well as New Hampshirites.

Given the huge sporting interest in The Bay State in particular, the state of New Hampshire is well placed to become the hub of sports betting in the North-West.
