In direct opposition to the state motto of ‘Live Free or Die’, New Hampshire bans many forms of gambling (including most real money casino games, and land-based and online sports betting), however, recent legislative efforts reveal that the state’s lawmakers maybe going through a period of change. New Hampshire allows for Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS), online horse racing betting and interestingly, the sale of online lottery tickets in what was the first state lottery introduced in the United States.
Land-based casino gambling is almost non-existent in New Hampshire. A fewde facto casinos are given permission to operate in so long as they donate part of their proceeds to charity. High-limit Las Vegas style action is generally not available and traditional commercial casinos are not present today in New Hampshire today.
