Full-scale sports betting soon to be available in Delaware

21 May 2018

Sports bettingThe American sports betting industry is already seeing the fruits of labor from the PASPA repeal  The recent recall of the framework on the legal status of sports betting has allowed individual states to call the shots on whether they will decriminalize sports wagering it or not. Delaware has decided to enable full-scale betting, starting with its Lottery offering. The transition into the new phase was determined upon agreement of the Attorney General and the Delaware Department of Finance (DOF) on the legality of the state to enter the new era.

Another law that was introduced back in 2009 puts Delaware in an even better position to freely offer sports betting. According to it, "betting on professional and college sports, with the exception of games involving Delaware-based teams" is allowed. Delaware Governor John Carney was very happy with the decision to proceed with the repeal of the PASPA framework, emphasizing that the state already possesses all functions to fully support the new phase. The Attorney General's office agreed with the Governor's statements, stressing that lottery and casino staff are already undergoing extensive training to ensure that all services offered will be up to par.

Delaware’s Finance Secretary, Rick Geisenberger was also very enthusiastic and demonstrated great belief in the potential of the State to provide regulated betting services of the utmost quality. He also mentioned that preparations for the PASPA repeal have been underway for quite some time, so the only thing that's left to be done now is staff training.
