Delaware igaming revenue hits new heights in May


Revenue from Delaware’s regulated igaming market rose to $313,648 (£247,112/€278,007) in May,  the highest monthly total of the year to date, despite players spending less online.

The May figure is a significant improvement on April’s total of $263,183, which was incidentally the lowest monthly figure of 2019 so far, according to figures released by the Delaware Lottery.

Players staked $11.7m online in May, the lowest monthly amount since $9.0m in February and down from $11.9m in May, while player winnings also fell month-on-month to $11.4m.

Delaware Park retained top spot in the state’s online gambling market in terms of revenue with $127,932 off $2.96m in wagers for the month. This was down from April revenue of $144,084 and $5.2m in bets.

Dover Downs was by some distance the most popular platform for punters in May, processing a total of $8.1m in bets, up from $5.5m in April. Revenue hit $123,044 for the month compared to just $75,323 in April.

Harrington Raceway remains some way off the pace after taking $1.0m in online wagers during May, down from $1.2m in the previous month. However, revenue was up month-on-month from $43,775 to $62,672.

During the first five months of the year, operators generated revenue of $1.41m, with consumers spending a total of $54.7m online.
