Delaware took $8.2m in sports betting wagers between 25 June and 29 July,

Delaware became the first US state outside Nevada to implement full-scale sports betting on 5 June and it hasn’t looked back, taking more than $15m in bets since.

The state’s latest figures show $8.2m being wagered across its three casinos over a period slightly longer than one month – generating revenue of $527,000 once all bets were settled.

Delaware Park was by far the state’s most active casino, accepting $5.8m in wagers, while Dover Downs took over $1.7m and Harrington Raceway made a little more than $700,000.

Delaware has had a sports lottery in place since 1992, when the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) was passed, but has created history by implementing legalised sports wagering in the wake of PASPA’s repeal.

There is subsequently understandable interest in the volume of sports betting across Delaware’s casinos, with the figures being slightly misleading, considering July is one of the quieter months in the US sporting calendar; the new NFL season, starting in September, should prompt a stark rise in numbers.
