Is Online Poker Legal in Delaware?
Online poker is legal in Delaware. 888 is the preferred online poker provider. Online casino games are legalized as well. Online gambling is expected to be live by September 30, 2013. Unfortunately for online poker players, their favorite games may not be available.
That is because Delaware’s population likely makes it impossible to sustain any type of online poker liquidity. The state has also not entered into a gaming pact with Nevada or New Jersey, the only two states that have passed online gambling regulations. Nevada is the only state that has launched, where only online poker is legal.
