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.
So, just what is available for residents of the Diamond State? Well, three of the state’s existing casinos have been licensed to offer online games.
Here are links to each of the sites for online gambling, where you can download the software and register an account:
Of course, you need to be physically present in Delaware, a fact that will be confirmed through a process of text messaging to your cell phone.
Note that if you want to play at more than one of the sites, you will need to create a new account for each. You cannot reuse the same username at more than one site however.
I’m checking out the available games now, and hope to have a full in-depth review to post here soon. Stay tuned!
I’m back with an update, and so far it isn’t pretty…
After 3 declined deposit attempts (1 ACH, 1 Chase Visa, 1 Chase MasterCard), I was able to successfully make a deposit at Delaware Park’s site with a CitiBank MasterCard.
However, I still get an error any time I try to enter a Real-Money game:
An email to customer support got an automated response that they would handle my inquiry within 48 hours, so I called the phone number on the site. It tells me that the person at that extension is on the phone and to please leave a message. The call is then dropped before I can record my message!
This isn’t a very promising start.
