Online Gambling 'Soft Launch' in Del.


DOVER, Del. – A "soft launch" of online gambling starts Thursday in Delaware.

State lottery director Vernon Kirk said Tuesday that the rollout of online gambling in the first state will start with a select group of preferred players. State officials are keeping the names of those preferred players, and the process in which they were picked, confidential.

Kirk made his remarks after a state Video Lottery Advisory Council meeting, which is an industry group that says Delaware's casinos are suffering financially and plans to push changes to the current models for sharing revenue with the state.

Council chairman Ed Sutor of Dover Downs says changes to the revenue sharing models are crucial for the state's three casinos.
