The latest figures released by the Delaware Lottery point toward a seasonal downward trend in online poker revenue.
For the month of April, online poker net income in the state fell 12.2%, from $84,392 in March to $74,078.
Delaware online poker proceeds for April, generated from three regulated “racinos,” were 35 times less than those of New Jersey ($2.59 million), despite having a tenth of the population.
Delaware Park extended its online poker market share over its two competitors from 65% to 69% last month. By comparison, Harrington lost nearly half of its share (from 9% to 5%), while Dover Downs remained relatively flat at 26%.
All three share the same online poker player pool and use 888poker’s software platform.
Table Games Thrive
Wagering on table games once again performed well, jumping 14.5% up $5.45 million, the third consecutive month of revenue gains.
Thanks to these gains, total monthly online gaming revenues have reached a record high—up to $240,496.
However, new signups for igaming accounts on licensed sites in Delaware declined for the fifth straight month, down 36.6% from 640 to 406.
There were a total of 2,654 new signups during the first full month of legalized online gaming (November 2013) in the state, meaning new monthly accounts have plummeted 84.7% over a period of six months.
