Best Online Sportsbooks in New Hampshire
New Hampshire has one of the most unique agreements with their operators of any state in the country. When operators were making their bids for online licenses in the state, DraftKings offered the state of New Jersey 51% of their revenue if they were the sole online operator in the state.
Currently that deal holds firm, while that figure will drop to 21% is the state allows 1 or 2 more licenses and 16% if they allow any more than that.
As of early 2020, DraftKings remains the only online sportsbook in the state of New Hampshire.
