Delaware may be one of the smallest states in the US, but it has a big passion for online gambling. Many people may not realize that online gambling legislation in Delaware actually predates the passage of similar legislation in Nevada and New Jersey. Delaware was eager to get on the online gambling bandwagon and begin earning revenue.
Online slot machines, table games, and video poker were legalized by Delaware in 2013. State lawmakers understood that neighboring states would likely pass their own online gambling laws, and Delaware was likely to lose revenue when that happened.
The Delaware Lottery provides oversight for online gambling. Licenses are also issued to the state's racetracks and casinos which permit them to open up their own online gambling venues. Delaware is one of the most liberal examples when it comes to online gambling, and the state has been rewarded for its approach with large tax revenues.
