Online and land-based betting both see growth

DraftKings remains the sole operator in NH
In July 2019, New Hampshire became the second New England state to legalise sports betting. Land-based, online and mobile sports betting is legal under the state’s law which allows the New Hampshire Lottery to award licenses to 10 land-based venues and five online and mobile sportsbooks.
At the end of November, DraftKings was awarded an exclusive contract to offer sports betting after being selected through a competitive bidding process.
In addition to mobile sports betting, DraftKings currently runs land-based sportsbooks at the Filotimo Casino & Restaurant and a temporary facility at the Twin River Mardi Gras Casino.
