The race to become the first state outside Nevada to provide full-fledged sports betting is over. The tiny state of Delaware will start accepting wagers only months after the Supreme Court raised the national ban.

The country sent out a press release Thursday announcing full scale sports gaming operations will launch at all three Delaware casinos at 1:30 p.m. local time on Tuesday, June 5.

The three casinos of the state comprise:

Delaware Park
Dover Downs Casino & Hotel
Harrington Casino & Raceway
Beginning June 5, the Delaware Lottery sports betting product Sportspick will soon be accessible at sportsbooks within the three casinos. It is going to now consist of championship and single-game wagering for various sports. This includes football, baseball, hockey, basketball, soccer, golf, and auto racing. It excludes events between Delaware-based teams.

But, it also appears tennis, boxing, and mixed martial arts will be inserted at a later date. A how-to-play record released on the Delaware Lottery site contains principles for gambling on these sports.

Delaware Lottery NFL parlay betting was already exempt from the national sports gambling ban. It’ll continue to be available at various Delaware Lottery retailers and pubs. But, full-scale sports gambling will only be available at the casino sportsbooks.
The US Supreme Court released a decision May 14 announcing the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA) unconstitutional. PASPA was the national law which made sports gambling illegal almost everywhere out of Nevada. The door opened to decide whether they want to legalize sports gambling.

New Jersey is the nation that fought the law at the courts. New Jersey lawmakers and lawmakers in other countries are scrambling to put together legislation to govern sports gambling ever since. In the meantime, Delaware spent the time confirming the legal framework for sports gambling inside its borders is currently there. In reality, it currently claims it has been there since 2009.

Immediately following the Supreme Court decision, Delaware Governor John Carney issued a statement stating full-scale sports betting could be accessible at Delaware’s casinos before the end of June:

«After the Supreme Court took this case this past year, the Delaware Lottery started preparing for the possibility that the Court could overturn (PASPA)…We will be looking at whether the ruling allows Delaware to offer full-scale sports gaming beyond parlay gambling on National Football League games which was re-instituted at 2009. We believe that Delaware probably already has all necessary regulations and laws in place to implement full-scale sports gambling under the management of the Delaware Lottery. If it’s permissible under the view, full-length sports gaming could be accessible at Delaware’s casinos prior to the end of June.»
