Delaware Becomes Fourth State To Permit Sports Bets

Feather News


Delaware Governor Jack Markell signed a bill last week that will make Delaware the fourth state in the nation to offer gambling on sporting events.

"Officials say they expect to have sports betting running in three months and table games such as poker, blackjack, craps and roulette, in play in no more than six months," according to the AP.

Only four states were grandfathered in a 1992 federal law that bans sport gambling. The other states are Nevada, Montana and Oregon.
