New Hampshire Slot Machine Ownership
The state of New Hampshire shares with many states the same law regarding slot machine ownership by residents. Any slot machine that was manufactured within the last 25 years is strictly prohibited. Of course, anything older than that is considered an antique by the state, and is legal to own. While many New Hampshire residents feel that this is too strict, there are some states that do not allow any type of slot machines to be owned by residents. Others have set the cutoff at 30 years as opposed to the more common 25.
New Hampshire Casinos
At this time, there are no establishments in the state of New Hampshire that offer casino gambling. For this reason, residents are forced to travel to a neighboring state if they are interested in playing slot machines or any other type of casino game. Over the past few years there has been some discussion that the state is looking into legalizing slot machine gaming. But of course, this will take a lot of time to make its way through the system. From there, it will take even longer to build and get casinos ready for business.
New Hamsphire Gambling Opportunities
New Hampshire does offer a few establishments which give interested parties the ability to bet on horse and dog racing. Since there are no casinos in the state, these establishments do a nice job attracting good traffic. To go along with this, the state lottery in New Hampshire is also quite popular.
Horse and dog racing in the state is regulated by the New Hampshire Pari-Mutuel Commission. They are in charge of everything from licensing to collecting taxes and much more. The state lottery operates separately from this department.
New Hampshire may not be the strictest state when it comes to slot machine ownership by residents. But with that being said, many feel that they are missing the boat by not moving forward with the development of casinos.
