Delaware Online Gambling Sites Win $188K In June

Online Poker Revenue Falls To Roughly $25,000


The state of Delaware’s three online gambling operators took in $187,944.25 during the calendar month of June, according to figures released by the Delaware Lottery.

$25,600 of that figure came from online poker.

April saw an all-time high of $240,000 in overall Internet win, which was followed up by $175,000 in online gambling revenue in May. June rebounded to the nearly $188,000.

Online gaming in Delaware first began in November 2013.

The $25,000 from online poker play in June was the tiniest such total since launch.

In April, Delaware web poker accounted for $74,000 of the $240,000 in overall revenue.

Currently, three firms offer online gaming in Delaware—Delaware Park, Dover Downs and Harrington Raceway. Delaware Park had around 65 percent of the market in June.

For comparison, Nevada’s online poker industry was $862,000 in May. New Jersey had overall Internet gambling revenue of $9.5 million in June, of which $2 million came from web poker. Just these three states have online gambling.

The June numbers aren’t yet out for Nevada. They could be stellar, as the World Series of Poker was running in Las Vegas from late May to mid-July. Thousands of poker players descended on Sin City for the annual poker festival. Nevada’s online gaming industry is poker-only.
