NH Players Stand to Win More Than $4.1 Million if the Boston Celtics Win NBA Championship


Concord, NH – If the Boston Celtics claim the franchise’s 18th NBA championship, they won’t be the only big winners. New Hampshire Lottery players stand to win more than $4.1 million if the Celtics beat the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. New Hampshire players have wagered more than $17.5 million on Celtics playoff games this season and more than $44 million overall on the NBA playoffs.

“Our players here in New Hampshire have very clearly demonstrated where their allegiance lies and if the Celtics can finish off the Warriors, they stand to benefit in a huge way because of it,” said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director, New Hampshire Lottery. “We’ve seen it with the New England Patriots, Tom Brady, and now with the Celtics—New Hampshire players aren’t afraid to bet on their hometown teams and favorite hometown players.”

The New Hampshire Lottery and DraftKings have seen New Hampshire players place more than $731 million in handle – so far this fiscal year.
