Despite month-on-month falls in revenue, igaming in Delaware has grown substantially since 2019.

US.- Delaware’s igaming handle dropped for the sixth consecutive month in November, according to the latest figures released by the Delaware Lottery.

The lottery report showed that just over $164m was spent on igaming platforms in November, the lowest figure reported since March when $16.35m was wagered.

Last month’s figure was still 32.3 per cent higher than the $12.4m of igaming wagers placed in November 2019. Revenue also showed year-on-year growth in October 2020.

Of the three Delaware properties that offer igaming, Delaware Park had the largest handle at $6.22m, above Dover Downs’ $6.05m. Harrington took $4.2m in wagers.

In September, the Delaware County Council established the Delaware County Internet Gaming Revenue Authority to manage the distribution of funds from online gaming to public projects and services.
