Full-Scale Sports Betting Launched in DelawareLast Edited:
State officials in Delaware are wasting no time rolling out sports betting since the United States Supreme Court cleared the way for it nearly three weeks ago.
Tuesday afternoon, June 5th, Delaware officials met at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino to officially launch full-scale sports betting at Delaware's three casinos.
The casinos will offer single-game and championship wagering on professional baseball, football, hockey, basketball, soccer, golf, and auto racing.
Delaware was partially exempted from the 1992 federal ban on sports gambling that was recently struck down by the Supreme Court, giving them a bit of a head start in offering sports betting at a larger scale.
Lawmakers are currently working on a bill to establish sports betting in the Garden State, and hope to have it approved and signed by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy to start taking bets on Friday, June 8th.
