Expansion Efforts of Online Sports Betting in Delaware

Delaware is one of the US states that have legalized online casinos. Given that sports betting has been gaining popularity, some legislators in The First State are aiming to legalize online sports betting in their jurisdiction.

House Bill 365 is the proposed amendment to Delaware’s online sports betting law that has been introduced in the State House of Representatives. This bill aims to expand the online sports betting market by introducing more options for their citizens to play in. This equates to allowing casinos to partner with multiple sports books. It’s currently assigned to the House Administration Committee for consideration.

State Representatives Franklin Cooke and William Bush introduced the bill. Cooke stated that the addition of online sports betting in the First State means additional revenue will benefit programs for the treatment, education and assistance of compulsive gamblers and problem gambling.

Legislators are hoping for more support of the bill’s passing following good turnout of sports betting: retail sports betting contributed $58,273 in monthly revenue from $990,664 in bets across Delaware. These recent numbers have indicated that conventional and online casinos can coexist since they cater to different demographics and provide different betting experiences.
