A bill to allow online poker in New Hampshire was defeated in the state’s House, which voted 23 to 0 that the bill was “inexpedient to legislate.”
The vote means the bill should be revisited during the next legislative session. The bill was introduced in January, but gained little traction throughout the year and failed to make it out of committee.
New Hampshire does allow online lottery services, giving some hope to proponents, but the bill stalled regardless. The bill also did not spell out any specifics on how online poker would be regulated and taxed.
