New Hampshire moved another step closer to legalizing sports betting Tuesday with the House’s passage of a bill allowing mobile gambling and wagering at up to 10 retail locations.

The House voted 269-82 to send the bill to the Senate. Meanwhile, House leaders said they also will likely incorporate the provisions into their proposed state budget, creating multiple tracks for the legislation, which has the backing of Republican Gov. Chris Sununu.

The bill would legalize betting on professional sports and most Division I college sports, excluding games involving New Hampshire schools. Under the supervision and regulation of the state’s Lottery Commission, both mobile and retail gambling would be allowed, producing an estimated $7.5 million for education in fiscal year 2021 and $13.5 million two years later.
