Future attempts by Andy Sanborn to operate a casino in the state will be met with challenging regulatory hurdles after his gaming license was suspended last week by the New Hampshire Lottery Commission.

Sanborn, a former state senator who owns and operates Concord Casino through his business WIN WIN WIN LLC was ordered to shut down his gambling operation on Jan. 1 as he faces a six-month suspension of his gaming license. In addition, Sanborn was told to sell the business within six months, or risk facing a harsher consequence – a two-year revocation of his license.

Concord Casino must be sold to a Lottery Commission-approved buyer and undergo a licensing process, similar to any new operator looking to receive a gaming license.
