The state of Delaware saw online gambling numbers rise in September, as revenues were up 118.3% to $840,146 for the month compared to the same time last year.
The revenues come as spending dropped 8.6% from the month of August, with $18.1 million bet. That number is up 44.8% from the same period last year, when punters wagered $12.5 million. Video lottery games such as slots generated $610,356 of the revenue, with total spend of $10.9 million. Table games were next, with $178,387 in revenues on $6.4 million wagered. Poker rake and fees amounted to $51,404 in revenues.
Delaware is consistently the smallest state in terms of iGaming revenues, due largely to the fact that the customer base is smaller than the competing states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The state has a population of just about 1 million, whereas competing states have more than 10 million residents.
The United States is seeing more states opening up to online gaming, and if poker player pool liquidity extends to those regions, there's a possibility that we may see increased participation in Delaware, pushing revenues on rake up a bit.
