Delaware is one of the few states in which Regulated Online Gambling is patently legal and there are a few online gambling sites that are licensed and operate within the state. Much like in New Jersey, the online operators must be tied in some way to a land-based casino.
Additionally, Delaware law does contain penalties for operators of online casinos who are not licensed and regulated by the state, however, there do not appear to be any penalties for mere players regardless of whether or not the site at which they are playing is licensed and regulated.
As with other states, there have been raids on those conducting illegal sports betting operations.
However, Delaware is also somewhat restrictive in that they are one of the states to take action on Daily Fantasy Sports...by banning it.
There may be a path in the future to the licensing and regulation of such sites in the State of Delaware, but that does not seem to be in the cards at this time. For the time being, the operation of DFS sites within the state is illegal.
In conclusion, Delaware has became the first state to have legal licensed and regulated Online Casinos, and in that sense, it was once the least restrictive state of all. Furthermore, a reading of the law does not show any possibility of penalty for mere players who choose to gamble at any online site other than the licensed and regulated ones, so the laws are rather liberal in that regard. The laws do carry penalties for individuals and companies who operate online gambling sites illegally, but that is the case in most states.
The only law on the books in Delaware that would make the state at all unduly restrictive is the direct prohibition of Daily Fantasy Sports, which is quite likely, in part, to protect online casino interests within the state. Either way, that does not do enough to rank Delaware as anything other than, ‘Little/None,’ in terms of restrictiveness.
