Delaware Launches Mobile Sports Betting
Following a successful software launch on Dec. 27, the Delaware Lottery announced the release of its first online sportsbook along with a relaunch of three online casinos (Delaware Park Online, Dover Casino Online in Bali, and Harrington Raceway & Casino), ushering in a new era of online gaming in the First State. The new online casinos and online sportsbooks are powered by Rush Street Interactive, a leading American gaming company operated under the BetRivers brand. In addition to introducing online sports betting in the state of Delaware, the state’s three casinos now offer an revamped array of new exciting online casino games. Customers 21 and older across the state can bet on any mobile device, tablet, desktop, and laptop.
“We are excited to launch our historic and much-anticipated new online sportsbook and casino with the Delaware Lottery and bring our award-winning products to Delaware,” said Richard Schwartz, RSI’s chief executive officer. “With our extensive gaming content offering, extensive deposit and withdrawal methods, real-time cash withdrawal approvals, and best-in-class customer service, Delaware customers will love the convenience of making easy money anywhere in the country from their favorite sports, slots, and table games.”
The online sportsbook, powered by BetRivers, offers bettors a wide array of wagering options on professional and collegiate leagues, games, and players, including spreads, moneylines, player props, futures, same game parlays, and more, all delivered through an engaging and easy-to-use website and app.
Selected through a public RFP process earlier this year, RSI will provide state-of-the-art online gaming for the Delaware Lottery for an initial term of 5 years, with extensions at the discretion of Delaware Lottery. The Delaware Park and Harrington Casino & Raceway sites are accessible through the BetRivers multi-state app and website while Bally’s Dover Casino offers its own standalone app and website.
“RSI’s successes in other jurisdictions, including neighboring New Jersey and Pennsylvania, are impressive, along with the company’s overall reputation and experience,” said Helene Keeley, Director of the Delaware Lottery. “RSI’s commitment to responsible gaming, quality products, breadth of gaming content and customer service are key reasons we are so excited to partner with them. “
“We are honored to collaborate with the Delaware Lottery team and the state’s three casinos to offer consumers in Delaware a safe, convenient, and innovative online entertainment experience,” added Mr. Schwartz. “The launch into Delaware builds on our proven track record of success in the Mid-Atlantic Region of Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey, where RSI has shown that online casinos and sportsbooks complement each other, and we continue to set new records.”
Delaware was the first U.S. state to successfully launch intrastate iGaming in 2013 including online slots, blackjack and video poker following the passage of the Delaware Gaming Competitiveness Act of 2012 by the General Assembly.
“We have no doubt that Delawareans will enjoy the ability to play their favorites slot titles on their mobile phones, as well as back their favorite teams,” Ms. Keeley continued. “Together RSI and the Delaware Lottery are devoted to successfully delivering best-in-class products and services to our customers.” 슬롯
