Internet Betting In Delaware Delayed Until September

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

Residents in Delaware will have to wait until September to get legalized internet gambling in their state due to conflicting items that are taking priority for the state's lottery commission.

In an interview with USA Today, Delaware State Lottery Director Vernon Kirk said that although his commission originally wanted to launch its gaming operations in the first quarter of the year, those plans have been pushed back to September due to the implementation of a state wide keno network and football parlay betting expansion.

Kirk also revealed that the state is looking to establish internet betting relationships with other states who have legalized internet gambling in order to boost layer numbers. Currently Nevada and New Jersey are working to legalize cyber betting, but Kirk mentioned that a deal with Europe could be a possibility.

“We’ll see what New Jersey does, and there’s even been discussion that wouldn't necessarily exclude Europe." Kirk said about the possible partnerships available.
