Delaware iGaming revenue down again in November


The Delaware Lottery reported a sixth consecutive month of igaming decline in November, with amounts wagered down to an eight-month low.

Some $16.4m was gambled in November, down 7.9% on October and the lowest figure since $16.35m was handled in March.

Since a record $29.5m was played in May – when the state’s three casinos were closed from mid-March until 1 June – Delaware has seen six straight months of contraction.

However, the November figure was still 32.3% greater than the $12.4m placed in November 2019.

Amount won was also at its lowest since March, with $15.9m recorded in November. That was down 7.6% compared to October, but up 32.5% on November 2019.

Net gaming revenue of $568,000 was down 11.9% on October, but up 51.0% on November 2019.

Of the three igaming locations in the state, Delaware Park replaced Dover Downs as the top performer. It saw $6.2m wagered and $6.0m won, with net gaming revenue of $234,800.

Delaware Lottery’s iGaming offering is powered by 888, which signed a new two-year deal in July 2020 having been its supplier since 2013. Customers can play poker, table games and video lottery.
