Internet gambling another 'first' for Delaware

November 04, 2013 7:11 PM by Ray Poirier

Delaware Internet Gambling News The “First State” truly became the first state as far as Internet gambling is concerned last week when Delaware began offering a full slate of online gambling options.

Previously, Nevada became the first state in the nation to offer real money gambling on Internet poker and New Jersey plans to offer a complete list of online gambling options beginning on Nov. 21.

On Thursday, Delaware permitted some 75 registered players to begin gambling on the Internet. The test will go on until Nov. 8 when all gamblers who have registered at the state’s three racinos, and are physically located within the state, will be able to take advantage of a full menu of games.

Following the launching of the Delaware gambling website, there were no complaints of initial glitches.

“Without a doubt,” said Brian Tyrell, a senior research student at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, “it’s something that people will be watching. If folks can’t log on like they couldn’t log into Obama’s health care system, that’s something we want to know about.” Tyrell was quoted by Jennifer Bogdan, staff writer for The Press of Atlantic City.

Actually, Delaware has permitted “free play” on the Internet since August, in hopes of reducing startup problems.

So far, Nevada has chosen to permit online poker only while New Jersey, like Delaware, will permit a full complement of games to be offered. There are five Atlantic City casinos prepared to participate in the Nov. 21 startup. They are Borgata, Golden Nugget, Trump Taj Mahal, Trump Plaza and Tropicana.
