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.
