Delaware, which has long offered sports parlay cards, will expand its sports-wagering menu to include single-game events beginning June 5 at its three casinos: Delaware Park, Dover Downs, and Harrington Raceway. "We're hopeful that this will bring even more visitors into DE to see firsthand what our state has to offer".
DE is set to launch full-scale sports betting next week, making it the first state to do so following the Supreme Court ruling striking down a ban on such wagering earlier this month. DE will be the first state to open sports books, with New Jersey and others close behind.
Full-scale sports betting will begin at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at Delaware's three casinos, officials said Thursday.
By virtue of a failed sports lottery experiment in 1976, DE was one of only four states, along with Nevada, Montana and OR, that received grandfathered exemptions from the 1992 federal ban on sports gambling that was recently struck down by the Supreme Court.

The same revenue-sharing scheme will be used for the new sports betting system, with the state, casinos and horse industry sharing what's left over after the winners are paid and Scientific Games, the state's primary sports betting contractor, takes its first cut of 15.6 percent of the remainder.
It appears at launch that sports betting will only be allowed at land-based casinos, with no online or mobile option.
