It’s called iGaming.

But in Delaware internet gambling has not brought in as much money as has been hoped by the three casinos.

Ed Sutor, the CEO of Dover Downs, told WBOC that the combined revenue has been averaging $150-thousand a month after a record high of $241-thousand in April of last year.

Sutor says there are a number of problems including a lack of content and that the gaming is still not available on devices such as tablets and smart phones.

Last month saw the beginning of multi-player system between Nevada and Delaware which saw more people playing against each other.

The casinos have been facing some hard financial times with a net loss for Dover Down of around $700-thousand last year.

The state legislature is considering a measure that would provide $46 million in relief for the three casinos over two years.
