Delaware saw $7.4m in online gaming handle during January, generating $279,000 in revenue.

The figures show a considerable year-on-year increase from January 2018, when a total of $4.5m was wagered, leading to revenue of $177,000.

This represented a 64% rise in the amount wagered and a 57% rise in revenue.

Of total digital betting, $3.8m was wagered on table games, while $3.6m was bet on Delaware’s video lottery. Net revenue for poker was $22,000.

As always, online wagering was spread across three venues: Delaware Park, Dover Downs and Harrington.

The largest share of handle ($3.2m) came from Dover Downs, while Delaware Park saw $2.8m played.

At Harrington, $1.4m was wagered, while there was a total of 578 new registrations in January across the three locations.

The Delaware Lottery is yet to announce sports betting figures for January.
