Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshire said he’s eager to place the first bet. Where? Rhode Island, Massachusetts? NO! Right in his own state. Sununu signed into law a measure that legalizes betting on professional sports and most Division I college sports. However, betting will exclude games involving New Hampshire schools. With this in mind, Rep. Timothy Lang called it a “win for residents, communities, the state and public education….[with] some consumer protections. The Associate Press reports that “mobile betting as well as retail gambling at 10 locations will be allowed. The state Lottery Commission will regulate the new industry. It will take some time to set up…..fiscal year 2021.”
