Delaware iGaming Revenue Hits Record High in April

TAGs: Delaware

Online gambling in Delaware might not be setting the iGaming world alight but trends in the right direction after an April revenue haul of $267,801 broke all previous records.

Delaware iGaming Revenue Hits Record High in AprilWith just under a million people, Delaware was never going to be attractive enough to turn heads when it joined Nevada as the second state in the United States to offer their residents a fully regulated and legal online gambling arena.

Let’s not fool ourselves into believing small fries aren’t an important part of this equation. The Lilliputians managed to keep Gulliver quiet. Every state is welcome irrespective of size. A well run iGaming outfit, no matter what the population, adds more fuel to the rocket that online gambling saviours need to create a ringing in the anti establishment’s ears.

And the numbers keep soaring.

In April, The Delaware State Lottery announced record online gambling revenue numbers of $267,801 from the combined racinos: Delaware Park, Dover Downs, and Harrington.

It was the third time in succession that the three independent gambling destinations had created revenue greater than the $200,000 mark. It was also the second time in succession that the state set a new record after a haul of $260,539 in April. 2016 is certainly looking more optimistic than the previous 12 months when Delaware announced a 14% drop in full-year results. It is also the fourth consecutive monthly increase.
