New Hampshire House approves historical horse racing gambling machines for charity Adam Sexton, WMUR-TV · April 7, 2021 at 9:00 pm An expansion of charitable gaming in New Hampshire will move forward after a favorable vote Wednesday morning. The New Hampshire House approved the use of “Historical Horse Racing” machines in the state’s already existing 16 charitable gaming establishments. Supporters said it will both benefit charities and bring an estimated $12 million to the state’s education trust fund. Opponents condemn the bill as a backdoor approval of slot machines. “Yes, they may look and feel like a slot machine but they’re not. As a matter of fact, we have devices already in these facilities in other locations, bingo halls, called Lucky 7 machines and they’re the same exact device,” said Rep. Patrick Abrami, R-Stratham.
