Delaware igaming revenue dips to year-low in June


Monthly revenue from Delaware’s regulated online gaming market slipped to a year-low of $257,263 (£206,610/€229,086) in June, while consumer spending was at its lowest since January.

The June figure will come as disappointing news to the US state, which in May posted revenue of $313,648, its highest monthly total for the year to date.

Player spending also slipped from $11.7m in May to $8.9m, which is the lowest monthly figure since January, when players wagered $7.4m on online gaming. Consumers won $8.7m in June compared to $11.4m in the previous month.

Delaware Park remains the market leader in terms of revenue, posting $128,472, which is up slightly from $127,933 in May. Consumer spending was also up month-on-month from $2.6m to $3.1m, with players winning $3.0m.

However, it was not such good news for the two other licensed venues in Delaware, which both saw igaming revenue decline on a month-on-month basis.

Dover Downs remains the platform of choice for punters in the state, accepting a total of $5.0m in bets. However, this was significantly down on $8.1m in May, and this was reflected with lower revenue of $79,505, compared to $123,044 in the previous month.

Harrington Raceway also saw its revenue slip from $62,672 in May to $49,286, while player spending fell from $1.0m to $858,519 in June.

For the first six months of the year, through to the end of June, Delaware’s three licensed platforms generated collective revenue of $1.7m in igaming revenue, with punters spending a total of $63.6m.
