Delaware very excited about the first online gambling figures for 2014
July 2, 2014
Delaware is since October 2013, one of the three US Gambling States that has been trying to develop better online gaming services within the state. The state’s gambling regulator, the Delaware Lottery Office, is following up the progress of the online-based casinos and poker rooms that are being monitored for Delaware’s gambling regulator to improve the safety measures in the state network. The different online operators as well as the land-based casinos are all working together to create a long-standing established framework for the state’s online gambling industry. The industry in Delaware is being backed up by the main names in the gambling industry. Delaware Park, Dover Downs and Harrington Raceway are developing the industry in such a way that the state has nothing to say against the methods that these gaming companies are creating better and safer frameworks for the online gambling industry. Delaware is now offering a real money gambling network where players, only within the state of Delaware, will be able to enjoy online casino games and poker rooms straight from their electronic devices with no need for them to download online platforms or applications. New games have been also introduced by some of these operators like the Black Jack tables with multi-hand options as well as video lottery games. The Secretary of Finance, Tom Cook, has said: “The success of internet gaming for the state, the casinos, and players depends on creating a fun and easy experience for everyone. We are excited to offer an iGaming option that doesn’t require a poker download, and we’re thrilled Mac users can now participate. These enhancements to the technology and to the games themselves allow Delaware to service a whole new segment of players.”
However, the Delaware Lottery has also shown us the latest revenue reports from the online poker industry, which has recorded a drop in figures. These numbers are showing online poker revenue of $57,470 during the month of May, a drop off of 22.4% on the revenue from previous month, April. May has been one of the most important months for Delaware’s online gambling industry as the numbers recorded during that time are more or less showing the future of the industry.
