A lot of city elections in New Hampshire are on Nov. 2, 2021. And betting’s on the tally in some places.
Voters in Portsmouth will once again choose whether to enable KENO at restaurants and establishments. The concern is on the tally for city elections Tuesday.
In Nashua, citizens will choose whether to allow the operation of physical sports gambling retail locations within city limitations.
Jeff Goss, owner of The Clipper Pub on Pleasant Street in Portsmouth, says it would be “shameful” for Portsmouth to turn down Keno, the bingo-like electronic game when other neighborhoods have had success with it.
” With COVID and whatever that has taken place to the restaurant market, it’s another method to assist restoration, bring more individuals in, increase our lunch and dinner crowds,” he says.
Since the start of sports betting in N.H., more than 65,000 gamers have signed up and positioned more than 18 million wagers amounting to nearly $730 million. With its sports betting supplier, the New Hampshire Lottery Game, DraftKings, launched mobile sports wagering in late 2019. Because of that time, the Lottyer and DraftKings have opened three retail sportsbook areas in Dover, Manchester, and Seabrook.
In Keno, gamers pick from one to 12 numbers, and every 5 minutes, a computer system arbitrarily generates and shows 20 winning numbers from 1 to 80 on a television screen. A gamer can place a wager from $1 to $25 per game.
