Delaware Poker Revenues Up 12.3% in March

Delaware Poker Revenues Up 12.3% in March

Delaware has recently released the revenue numbers for March and these numbers shows that the market is increasing its revenues, both in poker and casino. Overall the poker revenues went up with 12.3% in March, reaching revenue numbers of $84,391 compared to February's number of $73,971.

Delaware Park is the biggest player in the online market in Delaware, having 65% of the total market in the state. They reached revenues of $131,846 in March, with $66,483 of those coming from their online poker room. The numbers overall are still declining though, as December 2013 showed poker revenues of $106,922.

The current issue for operators in Delaware lies in the fact that the state takes the first $3,5 million in revenues and after that the operator will begin to make money. This has lead to the operators not doing any sort of marketing towards their markets, which shows in the decrease of new signups which also declined by 8% in March.

The interstate agreement between Nevada and Delaware may be what can save the operators in the small state, as it will increase the overall liquidity in the poker software and thus increase the revenues due to more tables to play for the players. If more states should decide to join this agreement, then it looks possible for online poker to survive.
