Recently, a bill to expand New Hampshire gambling was stripped of language that included online slots. The State Senate is expected to pass the bill, SB 104, on Thursday. 

Speaking with PlayUSA.comSenator Tim Lang said:

“I put an amendment in to take out slot machines, and that was to help our brick-and-mortar partners. That was to minimize any potential cannibalization, which I don’t think would occur but they were concerned about that.”

Without online slots, the games customers could play online include:

  • Online poker
  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Craps
  • Baccarat
