Delaware legalizes Sports Bets in June

The full sports betting could become available in Delaware by the end of June – the decision by the high court was released on Monday morning. The action comes in the wake of this week’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling that allows states to decide whether to allow its residents to bet on sports.

Delaware’s sports betting regulations have been in place since ’09, when it became the only state east of the Rocky Mountains to offer a sports book. Gambling in the state is currently limited to multi-game betting – known as parlays – on pro football.

Delaware Finance Secretary Rick Geisenberger said: “We’re starting training next week. Our hope is to get that complete next week and then it’s a question of testing software.” Goss notes the announcement comes “less than 24 hours after New Jersey delayed the launch of sports betting” at Monmouth Park, which was “slated to begin on May 28.” New Jersey lawmakers said that they “wanted more time to put regulations in place”.
