N.H. Senate kills electronic keno bill

Continue reading below

New Hampshire’s Senate has killed a bill that would have allowed electronic keno games in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. Supporters had estimated that the measure would raise $9 million annually if electronic keno is offered at 250 sites. The bill gave local communities the final say on allowing the game. Opponents argued that the damage to communities of adding an electronic game to the lottery portfolio outweighs the revenue benefit to New Hampshire and hurts its image as a family-friendly state. Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island are among the states that offer keno, and Connecticut recently approved it.
