Delaware’s three casinos have launched the first phase of the state’s online gambling operation.

The free slots, poker, blackjack and roulette games go live Wednesday morning. Lottery officials say it’s the first phase of iGaming, which is expected to have a real-money operation by the end of October.

Delaware is on track to be the first state in the nation to offer a full complement of legal casino games online. The free games will be open to players anywhere, but real-money games will be available only to players in Delaware. Mobile access is expected next year.

Delaware Secretary of Finance Tom Cook says he hopes to sign an interstate compact with Nevada next year to allow online poker players in both states to sit at the same virtual tables.
