Online Betting Bill Introduced in New Hampshire

This story was published more than 3 years ago.

This week New Hampshire state representatives Nick Zaricki, Robert Fisher, Eric Schleien introduced a bill that would legalize and regulate online gambling in the state.

The bill was officially added to the docket as House Bill 562 and would amends the current gambling offenses list by excluding the activity. The bill is simple and simply has a paragraph that reads:

d) Gambling done over an Internet connection on a website on the Internet.

The gambling offenses list is a group of different betting activities that are illegal in the state, and excluding online betting would effectively legalize the activity and open the door to regulating it for player protection and tax purposes. If the bill passes, it would be effective on January 1st, 2018.

I didn't know New Hampshire is one of the states interested in providing online gambling but it's obvious that more and more states are willing to do it..so the process continues.
