The Delaware Lottery has announced that March was a record-breaking month for i-gaming revenues in the state.
Online operations collected $260,539 (€230,621) in March, almost $20,000 more than the previous high of $240,762 set in April 2014, an 8% increase in revenue high. Revenue for March 2016 was 78% higher than the same month the previous year.
February was also a strong month for i-gaming in Delaware with revenues falling marginally short of $230,000, another strong indicator that 2016 is set to be a positive, potentially breakthrough year for the industry.
The only disappointing figure for operators was a 30% month-to-month decline in online casino revenue, falling from $97,899 in February to $68,420 in March.
However, video lottery revenue did exceed a previous record monthly high at $154,794. I-poker also did well, with revenues reaching $37,324.
