Delaware Park was the top sportsbook in the state, with $1.9 million in handle and $195,226 in revenue. Bally's Dover was next with $873,791 in handle and $93,506 in revenue. Harrington Raceway was in third spot with $458,575 in handle and $46,728 in revenues.

In terms of online casino gambling, handle was up 6.2% from last year to $39.5 million. Video lottery games (including slots) generated $24.1 million in handle, with table games generating $11.4 million in handle.

Revenues from online casino gambling was $1.3 million, up 8.3% from last year. Video lottery games generated $1.1 million of this, while table games generated $195,118. Poker rake for the month was $44,540.
