Online Sports Betting in New Hampshire

The Granite State passed legislation in July 2019 which legalized sports betting in the state. Then in 2020 New Hampshire finally joined the club when DraftKings launched a sportsbook.

The fantasy sports operator and sportsbook operator was selected by the state to partner with the state lottery and provide the online sports betting services.

According to reports, the state lottery will receive a whopping 50% of DraftKings' revenue.

However this means that DraftKings has effectively a monopoly on the market, which still makes it a good deal for the company.

Sportsbooks in New Hampshire

The agreement between DraftKings and the state lottery is an unusual set-up that appears to be a hybrid agreement between the system that Oregon has devised and what states like New Jersey.

Oregon has only permitted online sports betting via its state lottery app. This means that they can claim the profits of online gambling in the state. In New Hampshire, they have allowed 50% of profits to go to DraftKings who will provide the mobile sports betting platform.

According to the law however there will be 10 physical sportsbook locations allowed across the state.

Mobile Wagering in New Hampshire

It appears that this is the most popular form of betting for US punters, who place 80% of online bets via their smartphone. The importance of a user-friendly quality app puts sportsbooks at a huge advantage when entering a new market. We expect that is why New Hampshire was eager to set up a partnership with a sportsbook that could provide a top of the range mobile app.

It appears that the state will not place any restrictions on users wanting to place a bet via an app. You will not need to sign-up, deposit or withdraw in person.
