Bets are off for NH casino proposal

Posted: Updated:

New Hampshire's House says a casino isn't in the cards for the state.

The House killed a bill that would have allowed 5,000 video slot machines and 150 table games at a single casino, most likely at a proposed one at Rockingham Park in Salem.

Wednesday's vote was 199-164. Governor Maggie Hassan had been heavily lobbying for passage of the bill as a way to fund $80 million of her budget.
