Where to Gamble Online in Delaware, or At Least Try!

Online casinos have been live in Delaware for over a month now, but the debut has been largely overshadowed by the launch of online gambling in the neighboring state of New Jersey.

Delaware Legalizes Online Gambling

Two States Done, Forty-Eight to Go

The swell of online gambling legislation in the US reached a new milestone today as Delaware governor Jack Markell signed a bill legalizing online casino-style gambling within the state. Delaware and Nevada are the only states so far to pass legislation to license and regulate Internet casinos, although other states are at various stages of progress pursuing the same goal.  Now the race is on to see which state will be first to actually launch real-money games and take the first legal and regulated online bet in the States.
