Delaware Online Gambling Numbers Continue To Drop

Poker vertical suffers a 73 percent year-on-year decline

The December 2014 online gambling revenue numbers from the Delaware State Lottery show a continuing decline at 4.5 percent lower than the preceding month, with the three licensed operators posting total revenues of $169,606 and player sign-ups of 256 – a drop from November 2014's 308.

It's a far cry from the most successful month – April 2014 – when the sites reported their best ever results at $240,762.

Online poker again proved to be especially disappointing, with the three operators reporting total take in fees and rake of just $28,589 – a 9.6 percent decline on the preceding month and the third worst since legalisation in November 2013.

Compared with December 2013 – the first full month of legalised online poker that delivered revenue of $106,922 – the picture is even more depressing, showcasing a 73 percent plunge that suggests that until Delaware activates its player-sharing compact with Nevada it will continue to suffer an obviously chronic lack of liquidity and player appeal.
