Retail depth for New Hampshire via DraftKings Sportsbook at Manchester

DraftKings has debuted its second retail sportsbook location in The Granite State, after introducing DraftKings Sportsbook at Manchester alongside the New Hampshire Lottery and South Side Tavern.

Lauded as being voted “a top bar and restaurant in the state for three years straight,” the South Side Tavern sportsbook boasts betting kiosks, wall-to-wall TVs, and seating for groups of all sizes.

“The New Hampshire Lottery is pleased to work with DraftKings and the South Side Tavern to make DraftKings Sportsbook at Manchester a reality,” said Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery

“Already one of New Hampshire’s premier destinations for sports fans, DraftKings Sportsbook at Manchester will play a major role in supporting our ongoing efforts to maximize revenue for education in New Hampshire. 

“The response to mobile sports betting in New Hampshire speaks for itself and expanding to physical sportsbooks represents the next step for the New Hampshire Lottery and DraftKings as we expand this exciting new way to win in the Granite State.”

The longtime charitable gaming location recently underwent a $2.5m renovation to incorporate a number of precautionary measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Employees and guests are required to wear masks, and employees disinfect gaming machines throughout the day to provide a safe and clean experience.

“Creating delightful and memorable experiences at South Side Tavern has been our pleasure, and we were thrilled to work with DraftKings and the New Hampshire Lottery to make DraftKings Sportsbook at Manchester a reality,” commented Alex Anagnost, general manager at Granite State Poker, the charitable game operator. 

“We believe the sportsbook will further cement us as a destination location for sports fans in Manchester and the surrounding areas – and we look forward to seeing regular and new faces alike.”

DraftKings, the exclusive sports betting provider of the New Hampshire Lottery, launched the first sports betting retail location in the state last month with the DraftKings Sportsbook at The Brook. A ribbon cutting ceremony at DraftKings Sportsbook at Manchester is planned for September 13, 2020.

“We are proud to reveal DraftKings’ latest collaborative effort with the New Hampshire Lottery – DraftKings Sportsbook at Manchester. For the first time in the city, customers will be able to place retail bets on their favourite sports while watching the games in real time,” added Matt Kalish, co-founder and president of DraftKings North America

“Our New Hampshire customers continue to get to know the DraftKings brand, which has a reputation for a world-class and intuitive betting experience.”
