Sununu himself opened the betting with a wager of $82 on the New England Patriots to win the Super Bowl at a Manchester sports bar. In order for the mobile sportsbook to be utilize throughout the state, the state of New Hampshire has agreed to a six-year contract with the sports betting company named DraftKings.

Sununu on Wednesday told the Associated Press that, “sports betting is the right bet for New Hampshire.” In a state given to the AP, he said, “The launch of sports betting will also benefit our education system- a win for our kids.”
