US.- New Hampshire is to see its first sports betting retail site as Draftkings launches at The Brook casino in Seabrook with the New Hampshire Lottery.

Last year Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill that legalised wagering on professional and college sports in the state. Now the Brook will be the first physical site where sports bets can legally be placed.

Gov. Sununu said: “With major sports resuming in recent weeks, I am extremely pleased The Brook is opening its new retail sportsbook.

“This retail sportsbook represents the next evolution for the New Hampshire Lottery and DraftKings, which have already established New Hampshire as the go-to destination for sports betting in the Northeast. Along with placing bets online and with their mobile devices, sports fans now have an exciting new retail location where they can place bets on their favorite teams and experience this new way to win.”

The Brook was acquired by Eureka Casino Resorts in 2019. The Nevada-based company said it was ensuring the safety of guests with a new sanitisation plan including social distancing, hand sanitising stations, and obligatory face masks.

CEO of The Brook Andrew Carrier said: “We are proud to collaborate with the New Hampshire Lottery and DraftKings to open New Hampshire’s first retail sportsbook in a venue we know will live up to our motto: Live Free & Play.

“We built The Stadium at The Brook to be the best place to watch sports anywhere in New England. Unless you’re at the game, we feel that there’s no better place. Our new sportsbook will offer sports fans throughout the region a state-of-the-art, dynamic betting experience.”

Sports betting in New Hampshire has already proven to be successful, generating strong revenues in the first six weeks of launching.
