US.- Online gambling operators in Delaware may include limited sports parlay betting soon, thanks to new legislation studied now by senators, according to information from last week. The state would follow Nevada as the only two regions that regularised the sector.

During 2015, Delaware perceived a US$1.8 million income from currently legal online betting games, US$200,000 less than the year before. A tempting business is now seen in sports betting in order to reach a relevant profit growth.

If the bill sees green light, Delaware players must do parlays involving three or more games and table game license fee would be eliminated, as casino taxes will be reduced from 29 percent to percent in 2017 and 15 percent in 2018. Senate Finance Committee is evaluating the law project made by Senator Brian Bushweller.
