Delaware is the main American state that has been pioneering the launch of legal online casino gambling on American soil. This was the first state to put together an entire plan for granting online casino licenses for operators within state boundaries and to make the official launch of state regulated and legal online gambling. This is extremely rare, especially in a country known for being tight on online gambling regulation, but it is here to stay and some of the top online casinos have joined the venture and are ready to provide outstanding online casino services to state residents.

888 Casino is one of the most reputable and popular online casinos in the world, and the company behind it, 888 Holdings PLC signed a deal with the Delaware Lottery to provide online poker, table games and slots in Delaware. The results have been amazing and 888 Casino is now operating in Delaware for all residents who want some time at a real high quality online casino.

"This is an exciting and important day for the state of Delaware and for the gaming industry as a whole," said Delaware Lottery Director Vernon Kirk. "Delaware has long been a frontrunner in gaming innovation and we are particularly pleased to have 888 and Scientific Games as our partners as we bring this ground-breaking playing experience to Delawareans."

In case you are not familiar with the way in which the US Federal Government has handled online gambling legislation, let us tell you that the past ten years have been extremely difficult for everyone in our industry. The authorities seized the domains of multiple online gambling sites and the players who held accounts with them had to wait over a year to get their money back. Online gambling was banned throughout the nation and it is only until now that individual states are able to make their own legislation and regulate online gambling within their boundaries without intervention.

"888 is delighted to be powering the first regulated online casino in the U.S., along with our Poker product which is already live in Nevada. Delivering this project in such a short timeframe is a remarkable achievement and the result of close collaboration with our partners at Scientific Games, as well as the Delaware Lottery and the three licensed video lottery agents," said Brian Mattingley, Chief Executive Officer of 888.
