Delaware’s online gaming industry won roughly $1.8 million off of gamblers in 2015, according to figure’s from the state lottery.

December had overall I-gaming win of $180,109.82, of which $31,124.74 came from peer-to-peer poker player. The poker revenue figure was the second straight month that win for that game increased after October’s all-time low of $24,030.03. The entire year saw nearly $400,000 in online poker revenue, but that was down from the $600,000 seen in 2014. New Jersey online poker also had a year-over-year decline.

In 2014, Delaware online casinos won more than $2 million, so the overall I-gaming market also took a small hit this past year. Delaware kicked off online gaming in late 2013.

The state’s three I-gaming operators are Delaware Park, Dover Downs and Harrington Raceway. 888 Holdings is a technology providef for the three brick-and-mortars.
