The local lottery in New Hampshire is looking for vendors and retailers for its sports betting operations, recently legalised.

US.- The New Hampshire Lottery is the body in charge of the sports betting operations in the state. Naturally, the lottery is now moving forward with all the things it needs to do in order to kick off the operations. The entity is looking for proposals from potential online vendors and retailers for sports betting.

The New Hampshire Lottery will receive proposals until September 16. The lottery expects to approve the final contracts by the end of November. The goal is to launch sports betting by early 2020.

“The New Hampshire Lottery looks forward to working with vendors to develop a secure sports betting system that engages our players and drives revenue in support of education in New Hampshire,” lottery executive director, Charlie McIntyre, said in a statement.

The legalisation

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu signed into law a sports betting bill last month. The law also allows mobile betting and retail gambling at 10 locations.

The industry, which will under the Lottery Commission, is likely to bring US$7.5 million for education in fiscal year 2021. It will bring US$13.5 million by 2023.

Moreover, the American Gaming Association (AGA) released a statement after the governor signed the bill. “The American Gaming Association applauds Governor Sununu and the New Hampshire legislature for legalising sports betting, becoming the third previously non-gaming jurisdiction, after Tennessee and Washington, D.C., to authorise wagering on sports,” said Bill Miller, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association.
