Delaware Plans To Allow Betting On NFL Games This Season
Published July 14, 2009
The state of Delaware "intends to allow single-event betting on NFL games" beginning with the '09 season, according to A.J. Perez of USA TODAY. Delaware State Lottery Dir Wayne Lemons said that the state will "allow bettors to wager on the outcome of one game or a parlay of several." The state would join Nevada as the "only states with legal betting on NFL games," and Delaware lawmakers have "not ruled out allowing wagering on other pro and college sports." Under the current plan, the state's three casinos located at horse racing tracks "would be the only places where sports betting is allowed" (USA TODAY, 7/14).
