Legal Sports Betting Sees Success in Delaware


Delaware officials say sports betting has proven successful for the first state since it became legal in summer of 2018.

Reports say that from July 1st to this month sports-related bets have netted the state a profit of 11,000 dollars. That includes 151,000 dollars placed on this year’s 53rd Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots.

Sports Lottery Director Vernon Kirk says legal wagering has proven a win for both bettors, and the state treasury.

On June 5, Delaware became the second state in the country to legalize full-scale sports betting after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturned a 1992 ban.
