Sports wagering revenue in Delaware reached just $12,114 (£9,163/€10,233) in July, in the first figures released by the Delaware Lottery since March, due to disruption caused by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Revenue was down 97.6% from $507,410 in July last year, and also 97.9% lower than in March of this year – the last time retail sportsbooks were operational in the state.

As Delaware only permits land-based sports betting, the temporary closure of all retail locations from mid-March meant it the state did not generate any sports wagering revenue during the past few months.
