The state of Delaware's online betting revenue sank in October, falling to the lowest level of the year.

For the month betting revenues recorded online were $246,092, down 36.1% from September, which registered $384,830 and was the highest total of the year. There was $9.4 million wagered online during the month, down from $11.8 million the month prior. Players ended up winning $9.6 million during the month.

Most of the total was made up of video lottery games, making up $184,224 in revenues, with table games raking in $40,428. Poker revenues were $21,439.

Delaware is a tiny state in the US, having about a million people living within its borders. The state was the first one to legalize online betting, but lags behind neighboring New Jersey and nearby Pennsylvania in terms of revenues.

One of the few if not the only state where the revenues going down for the period but probably the lower population of Delaware is one of the main reasons for that, still not that worrying of a sign I think when this is the numbers for just a single month.
