“Bettors had a higher win percentage in the second month of action in Delaware. In the first 20 days, which saw more than $875,000 in net proceeds, gamblers won almost exactly $1 million less then the total number of wagered bets ($7 million vs. $6 million),” according to Jeff Neiburg of the Delaware News Journal. Over that 35-day period for July’s figures, gamblers won almost $7.7 million.
In that time, the casinos saw World Cup wagers dry up by mid-July and while baseball is still being wagered on, college football and the NFL are right around the corner. Delaware Sports Betting should do just fine when that happens.
This is a breakdown of what each casino did over June 25 to July 29 period:
Delaware Park Sports Betting:
Total wagered: $5,823,029
Number of wagers: 90,603
Casino’s take: $133,843
Dover Downs Sports Betting:
Total wagered: $1,674,262
Number of wagers: 19,877
Casino’s take: $36,296
Harrington Raceway Sports Betting:
Total wagered: $717,474
Number of wagers: 12,006
Casino’s take: $15,417
Recently, Delaware’s neighboring state New Jersey saw DraftKings Sportsbook launch their mobile betting app, something Delaware hasn’t ruled out from getting involved with, but it’s unclear when anything of that sort will occur. For Delaware being so close to states like New Jersey with a much more desirable tourist attraction in Atlantic City, the state should be proud of their initial success. And it will only get better when football gets here.
