It was expected the launch of real money online gambling in Delaware right now. The director of Delaware Lottery said to CardPlayer that the launch date was set to October 31, so we should already have something working there.
Some partnerships with Nevada and New Jersey also could be possible to combine online poker player pools.
DoubleDown site is very popular with players in Delaware but the games are only available in free-play and real money gambling will be offered only when e-gaming is legalised and implemented. DoubleDown has some options in keep its games free to play and add the IGT casino games which will be available for real money wagers.
The difference of the licensees in Delaware and Nevada / New Jersey is that in Delaware, players will have mobile poker, video poker and slots so it's not only about poker but casino games.
"We are kind of restricted right now because of the integration piece to our service provider, which is 888 Holdings. So we are restricted to those games for launch. They are working with other game content providers for integration, but it will still be a while. They are coordinating all the pieces of the puzzle. They are the responsible vendor to us. They do the payment processing, the geo-location, the player identification, and so on. That is all being coordinated by the people at Scientific Games," said Vernon Kirk director of Delaware Lottery.
