Delaware Will Be The First State Outside Of Nevada To Take Pro Sports Bets
Delaware has won the race to become the first state outside of Nevada to allow professional sports betting. Wagers on professional sports teams can be placed starting June 5 at 1:30 pm EST at the following location:
- Delaware Park
- Dover Downs Hotel & Casino
- Harrington Raceway & Casino
“Delaware has all necessary legal and regulatory authority to move forward with a full-scale sports gaming operation, and we look forward to next week’s launch,” Gov John Carney said (via USA Today). “We’re hopeful that this will bring even more visitors into Delaware to see first hand what our state has to offer.”
New Jersey is hoping to offer wagering this month as well. The state’s sports betting bill will head for a vote on June 7.
