Delaware to Begin Taking Legal Sports Bets on June 5

The Highlights

  • Three Delaware casinos will begin taking legal sports wagers on June 5.
  • Professional baseball, football, hockey, basketball and soccer are among the major sports that will immediately be offered.

According to a Tweet from the USA Today’s A.J. Perez, Delaware will become the first state to take legal sports wagers following the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down PASPA.


Delaware Park, Dover Downs Hotel and Casino and Harrington Raceway and Casino will open for business on June 5 at 1:30 p.m. ET.

Bettors will immediately have the option to wager on major professional sports such as baseball, football, hockey, basketball and soccer. Golf and auto racing will also be available for wagering.
