Delaware Expands Number Of Sports Betting Facilities

Residents Can Now Bet NFL Games At 31 Locations


Dover DownsDelaware officials have approved the expansion of sports betting to include 31 other locations, including restaurants, bars and nightclubs, in addition to the state’s three existing casinos.

The expansion was recently approved as part of a new law allowing online wagering on slots and table games under the control and operation of the Delaware Lottery.

The tax revenue generated from these facilities will help to lessen the fees currently being paid by the casinos, who have instead stated that the savings will be applied to improvements and any outstanding debt.

Currently, sports betting in the state is limited to wagers on National Football League (NFL) games only. The three casinos in the state are the Delaware Park Racetrack & Slots in Wilmington, Dover Downs in Dover, and Harrington Raceway & Casino in Harrington.
