ccording to the Delaware Lottery, the state’s three online gaming operators—Delaware Park, Dover Downs and Harrington Raceway—won a combined $282,112.30 from players during the month of May. That performance follows March’s $260,539.30 and April’s $267,801.30, which were both all-time highs at the time.
Of the amount collected in May, $187,547.64 came from the slots; $54,227.26 was won on the table games; and $40,337.40 was raked from poker.
May was the sixth month since the state’s industry launched in late 2013 that online gaming revenue has been more than $200,000.
It was also the best month for poker since April 2015’s $48,552.24 in rake. Delaware and Nevada share liquidity for just online poker.
Delaware’s online gambling market contracted in 2015, going from roughly $2 million in 2014 to around $1.8 million last year. The market will almost surely be rebounding in 2016.
