Casino gambling was never a good bet for New Hampshire. We have neither the large and concentrated urban population needed to support it nor the Las Vegas-style destination as a draw (unless we are prepared to trade in our family-friendly vacation image for high rollers and g-strings).

New Hampshire has done well enough with legalized gambling. We began the modern-day legal lottery in the U.S and the state lottery commission has been wise to enhance it and join such multi-state efforts such as Powerball. Keno has been added and there is now legislation to authorize sports betting. Any serious revenue expected from that source would be greatly discounted by adding casino gambling on top of it.
