Delaware boasts i-gaming revenue increase for November

By David Cook
Delaware has continued to buck the US online gambling trend by reporting revenue growth.

The state posted over $184,000 in i-gaming revenue for November, as revealed by the Delaware Lottery.

That was a $54,000 increase on the previous month, which was however the second worst month it had suffered since online gambling was legalised in the state in 2013.

Year-on-year growth has also been posted for November, with a $73,000 jump made in comparison with the same month last year.

November 2014 ranks as the fourth-highest month since online gambling became regulated in the state, with the record standing at over $240,000 for December 2013.

Delaware’s online poker revenue also improved in November, growing 15% to over $32,000.

The successful month contrasts with the fortunes of New Jersey and Nevada, which have both suffered downturns.

Total revenue in New Jersey dropped from $9.5m in October to $8.7m in November, while Nevada posted its lowest monthly online poker revenue for 2014.

Revenue for online poker in Nevada has been in decline since June, and it was announced in November that one of its three poker sites, Ultimate Poker, is to close down.
