The American state of Delaware has collected more than $322 thousand on sports betting on the first day of the first regulated bookmaker market in the USA.
Delaware became the first state to approve the law on the regulation of sports rates after the Supreme Court voted to repeal the federal law on the protection of professional and amateur sports in 1992 (PASPA).
Delaware officially launched its regulated, full-scale sports betting service with GVC Holdings-owned Stadium Technology Group’s proprietary sports betting platform powering sportsbooks at the state’s three casinos. Gov. John Carney made the first wager, risking $10 on the Philadelphia Phillies to beat the Chicago Cubs. The Phillies won 6-1.
“For us, it’s really an enhancement of our tourism industry. It will attract a lot of visitors to our state, particularly at this time of year, during the summer, coming to our beautiful beaches south of here. They come here and stop at the casinos and do slot machine and table gaming. This will be another opportunity for them”, – stated Carney.Follow us on
