The New Hampshire legislature has passed the sports betting bill and heads it to the desk of Republican Gov. Chris Sununu, who has already expressed his support for the bill.

The Senate has made three amendments to the bill. The amendments made it clear that multiple online sports betting operators will be permitted in the space, but will be capped at five. It also capped the retail operators at 10.

The bill creates a subdivision of Sports Wagering within the New Hampshire Lottery Commission, which will act as the regulatory body for the industry.

The bill allows anyone over the age of 18 to wager on professional and collegiate sporting events. Gamblers will not be allowed to wager on New Hampshire colleges or collegiate sporting events in the state. It will not provide the leagues with an integrity fee and does not require operators to use official league data.

It is estimated that the industry will generate $7.5 million in tax revenue for the 2021 fiscal year and $13.5 million two years later.
