Delaware Sportsbetting Numbers Hit $16.8 Million

The state of Delaware announced this week that sportsbetting turnover in September 2018 reached $16.8 million, up almost $9 million from the month prior.

The numbers rose as the NFL season got underway, with 340,000 wagers placed in the First State, with Delaware Park responsible for 69% of the wagers placed. The numbers are an all-time record for Delaware, which was the first state to legalize sportsbetting after the Supreme Court overturned the sportsbetting ban in May.

The number of wagers was up considerably over the 121,000 wagers that were taken in over July and August. The market will likely continue to grow as the NFL season continues and both college and professional basketball gets underway this month.

Sportsbetting is proving to be much more popular than Delaware's online casino market, which has struggled mightily against the likes of New Jersey, which is raking in more than $20 million in revenues monthly.

Yeah , no wonder if these numbers (even though impressive by themselves) get even huger in the next months as Dustin predicted in his article, the major US sports leagues will be in their primes and obviously Delaware's natives are exited about it.
