Delaware online casinos started the year hot with three consecutive months of month-on-month growth. But that streak ended this past month, according to the latest data from the Delaware Lottery, which oversees gaming in the state.

Delaware’s three online casinos combined for $4.4 million in revenue, down 4.4% compared to DE’s March 2024 gaming revenue but up 243.1% year-on-year.

Key takeaways

  • Monthly revenue dipped for the first time since BetRivers launched in late December.
  • Yearly revenue more than doubled in April.
  • BetRivers Casino has brought a huge boost to the Delaware iGaming market.

April revenue data shows Delaware online casinos have plenty to be happy about

April’s monthly revenue decline was the first drop since BetRivers launched its websites in January.

Several casino markets across the country saw double-digit declines in revenue. In that context, Delaware’s sub-5% decline indicates the state fared much better than some of its counterparts.

Here’s a snapshot of how the state’s three online casinos performed this past month:

Delaware Park Casino$646,079$1,354,014$2,000,093
Bally's Dover$250,338$790,101$1,040,439

Total$1,143,095$3,295,448$4,438,543

Delaware Park Casino continues to be the state’s top online casino for table games and slots. Also, all three casinos tallied more than $1 million in revenue, a concept that seemed impossible one year ago when 888 ran Delaware’s online casinos.

Here’s a look at how monthly revenue has played out since BetRivers took over operations, according to the fiscal year 2024 report for DE iGaming:

BetRivers Casino has brought life to Delaware’s iGaming

Last year, the Delaware Lottery announced switching operators from UK-based 888 to US-based BetRivers. The transition happened in the next few months, culminating with BetRivers’ launch on December 27.

The results of that change are nothing short of staggering. Before BetRivers took over, the state had never seen a month in which table games and online slots brought in $1 million.

Since BetRivers launched in late December, Delaware has hit the double-million mark four consecutive times. Table-game revenue surpassed $1 million for the first time in state history in January, too.

Year-on-year, revenue was up 243.1% in April and 224.7% in March, signaling a new era of revenue for Delaware. Our US iGaming revenue page shows how Delaware revenue compares with other legal online casino states.
