The introduction of sports betting in New Hampshire has come with an unexpected blunder in one of the state’s most popular tourist destinations.
Anyone within approximately a half-mile of the Maine border cannot place bets on the DraftKings app, an area encompassing a significant portion of the city of Portsmouth’s downtown, and all of its waterfront establishments. The restriction also impacts the Tri-Cities, including most of downtown Somersworth, which saw sports betting as another tool in its revitalization efforts.
