Delaware Sportsbetting Handle Rises 440% in March

The state of Delaware saw its sportsbetting handle rise 440% in March when compared to last year, coming in at $18.9 million.

The numbers are also up 27% from the month prior. The increase in handle is reported to be due to the launch of online sportsbetting in the state, which went live in January.

The top-earning sportsbook was Delaware Park, which had $13.1 million in handle and $681,548 in revenues. Harrington Raceway was next with $3.3 million in handle and $176,583 in revenues. Bally's Dover had $1.5 million in handle and $113,692 in revenues.

Online casino handle was $136 million, up 227.7% from last year, and up 16% from February. $85.3 million came on video slots, while $50.7 million was bet on table games. Revenues for the state were up 228.6% from last year, and up 18% from February, coming in at $4.6 million. Delaware Park led the way with $71.1 million in handle and $2 million in revenues. Harrington Raceway was second with $38.9 million in handle and $1.6 million in revenues. Bally's Dover was third with $26.1 million in handle and $951,096 in revenues.

The financials come as the Delaware House of Representatives are considering a gambling amendment that would expand online sportsbetting in the state. The change would allow casinos to partner with more operators, providing more options for punters.
