Alpharetta-based Scientific Games Corporation recently announced that iGaming in Delaware is live with poker, casino table games and casino slots gaming now available on the Internet to adults located in the state.

Scientific Games signed a contract with the Delaware Lottery to be the primary vendor team, along with 888 Holdings PLC, to operate Internet gaming systems and services in the state for an initial term of five years with four additional one-year contract extension options held by the lottery.

Delaware, officially the first state to go live with comprehensive intrastate iGaming, including slots and table games, is operating a single iGaming technology platform that also includes Internet poker.

“This is an exciting and important day for the state of Delaware and for the gaming industry as a whole,” said Delaware lottery director Vernon Kirk.

“Delaware has long been a frontrunner in gaming innovation and we are particularly pleased to have Scientific Games and 888 as our partners as we bring this ground-breaking playing experience to Delawareans.”

“Delaware is an industry model for state regulated gaming,” said Pat McHugh, president of North American Lottery Systems for Scientific Games.

“The move to launch iGaming in the state is another example of Delaware’s leadership in protecting state-sponsored gaming rights in order for their casinos to remain competitive and to maximize proceeds for its citizens. We are proud to support their innovations.”

Brian Mattingley, CEO of 888 said, “888 is delighted to be powering the first regulated online casino in the U.S., along with our Poker product which is already live in Nevada. Delivering this project in such a short timeframe is a remarkable achievement and the result of close collaboration with our partners at Scientific Games, as well as the Delaware Lottery and the three licensed video lottery agents.”
