As of April 2023, no online Sportsbooks are available in Delaware. It was the first state to legalize sports betting after PASPA was overturned in 2018. As a result, Delaware now boasts a small but successful retail sports betting industry. There are three physical locations in the state where bettors can place their wagers. However, nothing online.
Hopefully, the absence of online sportsbooks changes soon. According to ESPN gambling industry writer David Purdum, “Delaware is falling behind. It’s just too easy. It’s almost easier to hop in your car and drive across the state line and place a bet on your phone than it is to drive down to one of the race tracks to do it in person. And that’s the preferred method for the majority of American sports betters.” Delaware saw a 7% drop in its sports wagering revenue in fiscal year 2022.
Meanwhile, surrounding states are seeing a boom in sports betting, which Purdum said is driven by the popularity of online betting. Maryland reports more than $470 million in wagering was done through online betting apps alone in December 2022 – its first full month of mobile betting. Purdum said Delaware could play catch up and allow online betting, but it would require significant investment and approval by the state lottery.
Nowhere at the moment as of April 2023, but this is certainly subject to change.
