Delaware was the first state in the country other than Nevada to legalize sports betting in June 2018. However, sports betting is only legal at three physical locations, as online betting is a work in progress.
After PASPA was repealed in 2018, it was fairly easy for Delaware to get started because they passed a law back in 2009 that aimed to legalize sports betting. That being the case, it's been a process to get online sports betting authorized, though it appears all but certain that will change in 2020, if not early 2021. William Hill, who has a partnership with the state lottery to run the day-to-day operations in each of the sportsbooks, will likely be the first operator to offer online sports betting.
In addition to fantasy sports and horse racing betting, online casinos are also legal, as long as you're in the state. Daily Fantasy Sports were officially legalized in 2017 following a 2016 opinion that they were believed to be operating contrary to state gambling laws.
