Online gaming numbers were up in Delaware for the month of August, as casino revenues jumped 54% from the same period last year.
For the month, online casino revenues were $244,387, which was up 54% from last year. The state's online poker numbers were down considerably, bringing in just $29,155. The state's online gaming market has grown a bit, but remains the smallest in the United States, trailing Nevada's online poker industry and New Jersey's wildly successful online gaming market, which brings in millions of dollars of revenue on a monthly basis.
Delaware has been working with Nevada to combine player pools for the online poker industry, allowing players in Delaware to play World Series of Poker games against punters in Nevada. To date, this has not yet been accomplished, even though the states' Governors have signed accords.
