Then end of October will mark the first anniversary of legal internet gambling in the US state of Delaware. With three sites active, the online poker side of the business has been underwhelming in terms of revenue generation, as was to be expected, but the online casino market has been relatively successful, considering the diminutive population of the Diamond State. Even so, a throng of beneficial promos, including free spins on the virtual slots and valuable first-time deposit bonus offers, are attracting new players every day.
Delaware is home to three brick and mortar gambling establishments, and as such, three online casino and poker websites. They belong to Delaware Park, Dover Downs and Harrington Raceway, and are all powered by 888 software. We’ll review the current new player promotion for online casino and poker goers at each internet location, and you’ll see just how strongly players are being encouraged to play online poker.
Delaware Park Online Gaming Promotions
Delaware Park is currently offering several enticements for new members. Signing up an account with the online casino and taking advantage of the instant-play software gives new members access to a 100% up to $100 welcome bonus on their first deposit, plus 20 free spins on the popular City Life video slot. But since the casino has seen much more success than the poker side of the internet business, the gaming site is encouraging players to make use of the downloadable the poker client by offering a larger, 100% up to $200 deposit bonus for poker players, plus 50 free spins on the slots.
