Tuesday August 26, 2014 : DELAWARE ONLINE GAMBLING REVENUES DOWN IN JULY
But poker perked up a little..
Figures released by the Delaware Lottery this week show that intrastate online gambling net revenues again declined month-on-month in July, slipping 7.6 percent to $173,000 (June 2014: $187,000).
Amounts wagered dropped 38 percent month-on-month to $5,510,993 (June 2014: $8,844,489).
There was a positive; the online poker net revenue component at $31,397.57 was around 22 percent up on the month previous (June 2014: $25,607.60) but that was the worst month for poker since the launch of the Delaware online market in November last year.
The high for online poker in the state was reached last December, when revenues reached $106,922.76, whilst for online gambling generally the best month was April 2014, when revenues topped $240,762.
Delaware Park continues to lead the three online gambling operators in the state.
