Delaware Sports Betting Legal Status

Author: americangambler | Last Updated: June 30, 2019

Online sports betting is legal in Delaware as of June, 2018. The state became the first outside of Nevada to allow legal, single-game wagers following the Supreme Court decision on May 14, 2018 that struck down the federal ban on sports betting (PASPA). Delaware enacted a sports betting law in March, 2018 that took effect following the Supreme Court decision.

Delaware was one of four states that had a partial ban from PASPA starting in 1992. The state was able to offer wagering on college and pro football parlay cards through the Delaware sports lottery. In 2009, the state passed a bill that expanded sports betting to include single-game wagers. So when PASPA was struck down in 2018, Delaware was in a position to quickly legalize sports betting.

The Delaware Lottery oversees all gambling in the state including sports betting. With sports betting now legal in Delaware, residents may place single-game wagers on sporting events.
