Delaware likely to be the second state to regulate online poker, Gambling911 | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

Delaware is likely to be viewed as the state that opens up the floodgates as it pertains to legalized intrastate (and multi-state compacts) online poker.

 

House Bill 333 is projected to generate $7.75 million in new state revenues. Individuals from other states will be unable to gain access to Delaware’s online gambling websites. It remains to be seen if the First State can sustain a viable player pool for online poker, with just about 800 000 inhabitans.

 

The final vote is scheduled for Tuesday June 26 2012.
