Delaware Set To Launch Online Gambling On October 31
The state of Delaware is one of the three U.S. states that have legalized online gambling. With Nevada already in full swing Delaware is set to provide the ultimate “trick or treat” option when they launch online gambling on Halloween, October 31. Unlike Nevada where only online poker is legal, Delaware will offer other gaming options.
With New Jersey Set to launch in Nov.26 Delaware will become the second state to offer real money games following their free-to-play online games that were offered in August via the state casinos’. Delaware is a relatively small state with only 900,000 residents and for this reason they have managed to fly under the radar in terms of public hype for the launch.
With New Jersey being the largest market of the three states there are discussions amongst the trio to create some sort of interstate compact which would make it more profitable for all.
Like in Nevada and New Jersey only residents physically located within the state will be permitted to gamble online. Industry experts have asked the question whether smaller states like Delaware will be able to sustain a large online player base as Nevada is learning the hard way. It is for this reason that major moves are underway to get larger states like California to legalize online gambling in one way or another.
