During last month, sports betting revenue went south, 34% to be precise, which amounts to $406,293 in total. This is more or less consistent with April. We will have to wait until the end of the year to make comparison annually, but for now, we’ll focus on month-to-month results.
The total amount of wagers was slightly down from April, some 13%, or $133,607 to $84,982. We took Delaware Park’s information on this one.
Dover Downs made $101,444 with 32,465 wagers and a handle of $2.5 million, while Delaware Park made $252,067 in revenue from a $3.6 million handle. On the other hand, Harrington Raceway generated $52,782 from $768,047 handle, as a result of total 16,160 wagers.
Annually, Delaware officially generated $4.1 million revenue from sports betting, from a $42.9 million handle. The total amount of sports wagers which were placed within this state’s lines has a target of reaching a million in June. This would make $953,527 so far, so it is safe to say that the goal should be achieved by the end of this month.
However, Delaware isn’t catching up on the Garden State’s heights yet. Delaware’s population is currently under a million, and there are only three available sports betting venues in the state.
