Thirteen companies have submitted proposals to run New Hampshire's new sports betting system.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed a law in July that legalizes betting on professional sports and most Division I college sports, excluding games involving New Hampshire schools. The New Hampshire Lottery said Monday that 13 potential vendors and retailers have submitted proposals. The selected company will be notified by Oct. 17, and the final contract is expected to be approved in November.

Since a U.S. Supreme Court decision last year ended Nevada's monopoly on legal sportsbooks, they've opened in 12 more states. They've also been legalized but have not yet opened in another five states, including New Hampshire, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
