A bill that would have legalized casino gambling in New Hampshire fell flat once again in the state Senate.

If signed into law, the bill would have legalized video lottery games at a single location in the state. Originally the measure named Rockingham Park in Salem as the location - but in an effort to gain more votes – a revised bill called for an open bidding process.

That didn’t seem to work. Lead sponsor Senator Lou D’Allesandro more or less killed the bill with a motion to table it for the second time this session.

This is the only casino bill still on the table this session. Another bill – which is in committee in the Senate – looks to legalize Keno.
