A week ago, Intralot and DraftKings scored the highest in the New Hampshire Lottery bidding process for sports betting. As a result, the New Hampshire Lottery has selected DraftKings and Intralot as its preferred partners to offer sports betting via retail, mobile and lottery channels.
New Hampshire Executive Council voted to approve the state lottery’s decision to award DraftKings an exclusive contract to operate online sports betting in the Granite State. Hence, with an exclusive contract, DraftKings is ready to offer online sports betting in New Hampshire.

Before Intralot New Hampshire deal
New Hampshire was the first U.S. state to start a lottery in modern times. The Granite State is now celebrating 55 years of successful operations. In 2010, Intralot joined the state lottery and since then it is delivering innovative lottery products and solutions to the New Hampshire Lottery Commission.
Intralot provides the Lottery with its Lottery Gaming System for the operation of terminal-based games; the management of instant games and associated gaming products, the support of the retailer network and other support services including marketing.
Furthermore, Intralot has provided excellent service and created tremendous value for New Hampshire citizens and the State’s Trust Fund.
Now, it extends the contract with the New Hampshire Lottery to offer retail sports betting solutions throughout the state. Therefore, Intralot will continue to further increase the Lottery’s revenue for the benefit of New Hampshire and its citizens.
Sports betting law in New Hampshire
Rhode Island is the only state in New England where legal sports betting is taking place. Now, New Hampshire is the second New England state to legalize online, mobile and land-based sports betting. On 12 July 2019, Gov. Chris Sununu made sports betting legal in New Hampshire by signing H 480 into law.
According to the law, the New Hampshire lottery can conduct sports betting, not only online, but also in 10 physical locations around the state. Players can create an online account while located anywhere within the state lines. Whereas, bettors in New Hampshire must be at least 18 years old. Besides, the bill permits in-play sports wagering via online platforms only.
