Delaware Online Gaming Revenues Increase 42 Percent In November
The story of online gambling in the U.S. for 2014 has had a lot of twists and turns with most of them being nothing to celebrate. The State of Delaware is just one of three U.S. states that internet gambling in some form or other is legal. It is considered the smallest online gambling market after New Jersey and Nevada with a population of under a million people.
The small potential player base is the reason why Delaware and New Jersey signed an interstate compact with each other in February which is yet to come into play. In a surprise turnaround the month of November saw an increase of 42 % in igaming revenues in Delaware. This is good news as it represents the fourth highest total achieved since its launch a year ago. November saw online revenues reach $184,898 which was up from the $130,268 of October. The revenues were generated from the three online gaming sites in Delaware which are Harrington Raceway, Dover Downs and Delaware Park.
Delaware saw their bestt month in April with online revenues peaking at $240,762 and were at their lowest in the first month of operation way back in November 2013 where they were a measly $111,387. The top performing iGaming site is Delaware Park who make up 66% of the market for November. This is followed by Dover Downs who made up 17% with $31,421 which was closely followed by Harrington Raceway with $30,583. Online poker revenues saw an increase of 15 percent for November as earnings from all three sites took in $32,814 with Delaware Park making up 59% of the action.
