Is sports betting legal in New Hampshire?
Gov. Chris Sununu signed bill H 480-FN into law on July 12, 2019. This legalized sports betting in New Hampshire, both online and via 20,110 retail outlets. Individual towns and wards will be able to vote on whether to allow the retail sportsbooks in their area.
Sports betting is under the control of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission. A total of five online licenses were available, but only one was awarded to DraftKings.
DraftKings Sportsbook is the only online betting site that will provide an iPhone app in New Hampshire.
To bet online, you need to be at least 18 years to gamble and be inside New Hampshire state lines; the betting app will not work outside of the state.
There are a couple of exclusions in terms of bet types and sports in the regulations.
One notable exception is college games that take place within the state. You can bet on college action, but the games need to be outside of New Hampshire.
Betting on New Hampshire teams using your iPhone/iPad
With only minor league teams in the Granite State, you’ll need to go farther into New England to find the more prominent franchises.
Not far away in Massachusetts, you’ll find plenty of major league action:
- NFL: New England Patriots
- MLB: Red Sox
- NBA: Boston Celtics
- NHL: Boston Bruins
The only minor league team is the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, who play in the Eastern Baseball League.
How to download a sports betting app on your iPhone
You’ll be able to deposit, bet and manage your account through your iPhone/iPad; there isn’t any need to register via a desktop.
Downloading could not be easier. You can visit DraftKings here and download it directly from the site.
Once installed, the next step is to register your account.
You need to choose a username, add your email address and supply some personal info, including your name, age and the last four digits of your Social Security number.
You aren’t required to be a permanent resident of New Hampshire to register; however, you will need to be inside state lines to deposit or place a bet.
Navigating iPhone sports betting apps: The main sections
With so many sports options, multiple ways to bet and account/cashier sections, there are a lot of areas to explore once you have downloaded a sports betting app.
The list below covers the main sections, including what to expect. Even though each app functions slightly different, the main parts have more in common than they have differences:
- Finding Your Bet: You can bet on a lot of sports, leagues, college games and international fixtures. The apps highlight the pro leagues, often using ball icons, although they sometimes list them. Choose your sport, then league and you’ll see the latest games. Next, you’ll see the moneyline, totals and spreads available. Tap the teams playing for more bets, including props and period betting.
- Bet Slip: Once you find the game you want to bet on, tapping on the lines will add them to your bet slip. You then access this to finalize your bets. You can set your bet amount for single wagers, or combine your selections into multiple bets, e.g., parlays or round robins. If you change your mind, it is easy to remove selections.
- Cashier: You’ll be able to deposit with credit cards, bank transfers and cash. This area shows your balance, the deposit options and allows you to initiate those all-important withdrawals.
- Account: Your details, bonuses and progress toward them (depending on the app), and controls for deposits and bet limits are here.
- Promotions: It is always worth checking this section before you bet. You never know when there will be an enhanced odds or bet insurance offer that matches your wagering plans.
Along with odds on offer, bonuses and promotions are the main way to boost your bankroll. You can loosely divide these into offers for new bettors, loyalty schemes and promotions.
Here are some of the welcome deals to look out for:
- No-Deposit Free Bets: You can get smaller free bets on some apps for registering.
- Risk-Free First Bet: If your first wager loses, books will refund you (usually with a second bet, although sometimes cash).
- Matched Deposit Bonuses: A 100% match on your first deposit, up to around $500, is typical.
Loyalty schemes work by awarding points based on your bets. When you have accumulated enough points, you can exchange them for free bets or other bonuses.
Promotions are more varied than welcome offers. You’ll find significant sporting events trigger a lot of promos.
These can include enhanced odds offers, insurance against bets that lose in overtime, or even free bets. Other promotions include leaderboard or picks contests.
Funding your account in the Granite State
While Apple Pay is not on the list, there are a lot of ways to deposit and withdraw from the sportsbooks using your iPhone or iPad.
Note that you will only be able to deposit from within New Hampshire. If there is any doubt about your location, the app will prevent you from depositing.
The exact mix of deposit options will vary between the apps. Here are the most popular methods to move your money online:
- Credit or Debit Card: Quick and straightforward; this is the go-to method for bettors. Major card brands accepted include MasterCard, Visa, Discover and (less frequently) Amex.
- Bank Transfer via ACH: Also known as e-check transfers, this is a direct transfer. If you get verified by a third party, like VIP Preferred, then this is a fast deposit and withdrawal method.
- PayPal e-Wallets: A third-party wallet account adds some small fees. In exchange, you get a secure intermediary that separates your bank account and the sports betting apps.
- Cash Payments: PayNearMe allows you to deposit using cash at 7-Eleven stores. You may also be able to deposit via retail sportsbooks (depending on the brand tie-ins).
- Bank Wires and Money Orders: These traditional banking methods are slower, but provide a secure service for larger sums.
- Branded Debit Cards: In other regulated states, major brands offer debit cards. You fund them via your bank account, and then use them for both deposits and withdraws.
- Paper Check: This is for withdrawals if you deposited a method that won’t allow these. The book will deliver a paper check to your home.
What sports can you bet on via New Hampshire iPhone apps?
You’ll find many more betting options than just the Red Sox and Bruins. Pro sports, college games, individual sports, e.g., golf, tennis and MMA, soccer and auto racing are all featured.
The depth of coverage will mean that even the smaller leagues are covered – along with many international fixtures.
Here is an idea of the betting opportunities you’ll find via your iPad or iPhone:
- Football: NFL and Super Bowl betting are the main attraction. You will find plenty of college football action, too.
- Baseball: With so many games each season, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to bet. Bets on the playoffs and World Series often see promotions and specials.
- Basketball: You can bet on the NBA, NCAA or EuroLeague matches. Look out for player props, totals and spreads.
- Hockey: Bet on the puck line, the first team to score or props. Things reach fever-pitch each year as the Stanley Cup approaches.
- Soccer: You can bet on MLS matches, though the focus is on the English Premier and major European leagues.
- MMA and Boxing: UFC and major boxing bouts are popular for online betting.
- Auto Racing: This covers NASCAR, Formula 1 and, depending on the iPhone sportsbook, IndyCar.
- Tennis: There are tennis tours around the world. Things get busy when the majors, like the US Open and Wimbledon, are running.
- Golf: Bet on the PGA and European Tour games, plus the Ryder Cup.
- International Sports: There are many global sports available for wagering, including cricket, rugby and Aussie rules football.
What kind of bets can you place on New Hampshire sports betting apps?
You’ll have the opportunity to land a big parlay or bet on individual games via moneyline, totals, spreads or even props.
You can enjoy bets that are specific to individual sports, e.g., round betting in boxing, and others that cover almost every sporting event.
In addition to the bets we list below, iPhone betting apps give you a new way to wager.
Live betting involves placing familiar bets while the game is underway. Odds will change as the game goes on, and you can bet at any point along the way. Some apps will also offer cash-out betting, which allows you to redeem wagers early.
Here are the main types of bets available:
- Moneyline: Betting to win based on lines set by the sportsbooks. Positive numbers show the return based on a $100 bet, and negative numbers show how much you’ll need to bet to win $100.
- Spreads: The books add points or goals to the underdog to even the chances of each side.
- Totals: Here, you’ll see a number for the total goals/points in a game, you can then bet the under or over, depending on your assessment of the line.
- Parlays: This popular multiple bet format rolls the money won from one game to the next. You can turn a small stake into a big win if all “legs” of your selections come through.
- Round Robins: Each team in this multiple bet plays each other. One losing selection will not kill off the entire wager.
- Teasers: Another multiple-team bet, there is some flexibility in the lines via spreads. A teaser is also known as alternative totals at some books.
- Futures: You can place season-long wagers, for example, on your team making the playoffs or a player scoring the most points all season.
- Props: Bets on the performance of individual players or novel bets, like the first team to score, is a prop bet. These are naturally sport-specific.
- Period Betting: Instead of betting on the entire game, you can bet on goals, totals or which team will be ahead during certain periods.
Betting from your Apple device couldn’t get any easier
You don’t need a desktop or laptop to place wagers these days. IOS apps are available from all the major brands, which gives you access to the betting markets, bonuses and banking functions.
Mobile betting not only allows you to bet on pro and college sports as you would in a retail sportsbook but enables new forms of betting, too. Live betting lets you wager while enjoying the action via your iPhone or iPad. You can redeem your bets early via the cash-out feature.
With so much competition between the sportsbooks on Apple devices, you are in an excellent position to take advantage of marketing offers.
With free bets, matched bonuses and plenty of promotions available, you can get your sports betting bankroll off to a flying start.
