Lesniak says Christie ‘back on board’ | This Week in Gambling - News | Scoop.it

On Thursday, the Delaware House of Representatives Gaming and Parimutuel Committee voted to send its online gambling legislation to the floor of the House for a vote. It probably didn’t hurt that the chief sponsor of the Delaware Gaming Competitiveness Act aka HB333 is Rep. John Viola, who’s also the gaming committee chairman. (Handy, that.) Regardless, the committee vote was six in favor, one opposed and two abstentions. Delaware’s plan would enable the state lottery to offer online keno and other games to state residents, while online ‘video lottery games’ and ‘table games’ would be available via sites operated by the state’s three racino operators. A three-fifths majority vote in the full House is required to pass the bill, and the current legislative session ends June 30.
