The US state of New Hampshire is all set to launch its first online lottery products. The launch is scheduled later this week. When it takes place, New Hampshire will become the sixth US state to sell instant lottery online.

 “We have long viewed ourselves as a player-centric lottery,” said Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery. “Our focus in everything we do is how best to make our products entertaining and accessible to our customers by creating a strong and positive play experience. Launching iLottery is the critical next wave component in enhancing our players direct interaction with our games.”

To run its iLottery, New Hampshire selected NeoPollard Interactive, a turnkey online lottery solution active in several North American jurisdictions. NPI will provide the platform and manage several aspects of the NH online lottery for the state.

Maine legislature has passed the sports betting bill. The Legislative Document 553 was given final approval by each chamber of the legislature and will now pass to Governor Janet Mills to be signed into law.

LD553 opens up the market to all of the state’s bricks and mortar gaming venues, such as commercial racetracks, off-track betting facilities, and commercial and tribal casinos. It will also allow mobile operators to apply for licences without the need for a land-based partner in the state.

Successful applicants will have to pay $20,000 as licence fee, 10% tax on land-based wagering revenue and 16% rate for mobile wagering. The bulk of revenue raised through these taxes will be allocated to the Maine General Fund.

Operators will be permitted to offer odds on all professional, collegiate and amateur sports events. Betting on events involving Maine-based colleges and universities will be prohibited. Only citizens aged 21 and above will be allowed to bet.
