Delaware Online Gaming Revenues Down In 2017
While New Jersey continues to grow their online gambling revenues, the state of Delaware seems to be going backwards. They reported a double digit decline in online gambling revenues for the 12 months to December, 2017.
All three licensed operators that are licensed to take online wagers reported a combined online gambling revenue of just under $2.4m which was a 18% decrease from 2016.
The main source of online gambling came from video lottery games which accounted for $1.6m. This however took a drop of 10 % from the previous year.
Online table games also recorded losses to fall 28% year-on-year to $559,999 while online poker did not perform as well with a drop of 38% to $231,000.
To put things in perspective New Jersey recorded $245 million in online gambling revenues for 2017 so in effect although internet gambling is live in three U.S. states the reality is that New Jersey are the only state actually making a mark.
These dismal figures were released by the Delaware lottery and show the three licensed operators that are allowed to take online casino wagers and poker.
Delaware has a population of less than 1m and offered intrastate online gambling way back in 2013 at the Delaware Park, Dover Downs and Harrington Raceway.
