New Hampshire Sports Betting In Casinos
While retail brick-and-mortar casinos did well enough for themselves in September, the fact that there are only three of them in the whole state does limit the number of people who can place their bets there.
Retail casinos only accounted for 25.9% of the total September sports betting handle in New Hampshire.
The same two casinos also generated $548,552 worth of revenue for the month, $247,783 of which went to the state in taxes as per New Hampshire’s tax sharing agreement.
New Hampshire Mobile Sports Betting
New Hampshire mobile sportsbooks really stole the show however, pulling in $50 million of the total $68 million.
This means that New Hampshire’s mobile sports betting app, DraftKings Sportsbook, handled 74% of the entire September sports betting handle.
These apps made $3.1 million in revenue, $1.5 million of which was given to the New Hampshire government.
