Delaware Generates $8 Million revenue in July

The gaming industry in the state of Delaware continues to generate significant revenues, despite the fact that it is very small State compared with such states as Virginia or California, and from the economic point of view, it would seem, should not be so profitable.

So, during the period from June 25 to July 29, Delaware hosted sports betting for a total of $8.2 million, an 8.5 percent increase from the month before. State gaming facilities took in more than 122,000 bets, nearly double the total wagers placed in June, the first month of legal betting.

The three of its most prominent casinos have generated revenues over a period longer than one month totaling $527,000 after the settling of all bets. Apart from Dover Downs and Harrington Raceway, which took over productive $1.7 million or $700,000 respectively, Delaware Park is by far the highest-earning casino in the state, earning approximately $5.8 million in wagers.

Delaware started a sports lottery in place since 1992, when the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) was passed, but has created history by implementing legalised sports wagering in the wake of PASPA’s repeal. There is subsequently understandable interest in the volume of sports betting across Delaware’s casinos, with the figures being slightly misleading, considering July is one of the quieter months in the US sporting calendar; the new NFL season, starting in September, should prompt a stark rise in numbers.
