New Hampshire sees sports betting handle slip to 11-month low in July


The New Hampshire Lottery reported a year-on-year increase in revenue and handle for the state’s sports betting market in July, despite player spending falling to the lowest monthly total since August last year.

Gross gaming revenue for the month amounted to $3.1m, up 138.5% from $1.3m, but down 20.5% from $3.9m in June this year and the lowest monthly amount since February.

Mobile remained by far the primary source of sports betting income in the state as revenue reached $2.3m, compared to the $797,605 generated by retail sportsbooks in the month.

In terms of handle, players wagered a total of $36.7m in sports in July, which was 216.4% up on last year but 6.6% down on June and the lowest monthly total since $27.5m was bet in August 2020.

This was also the fourth consecutive month of betting handle decline in New Hampshire, with player spend having fallen month-on-month since $55.8m in wagers were placed in March.

Consumers spent $30.4m on sports betting via mobile devices in July, while the remaining $6.4m was wagered at retail sportsbooks.

New Hampshire was able to generate $1.5m from sports betting activities during the month, with $1.1m coming from mobile wagering and $359,067 retail facilities.
