Single-game sports betting is legal in Delaware this year; Dover International Speedway is prepared
Single-game sports betting was legalized in Delaware earlier this year. Now, NASCAR heads to Dover and the track is already prepared to take bets.
“Delaware has all necessary legal and regulatory authority to move forward with a full-scale sports gaming operation, and we look forward to next week’s launch,” said Governor John Carney on the June ruling. “We’re hopeful that this will bring even more visitors into Delaware to see firsthand what our state has to offer.”
The legalization took place on June 5. It made Delaware the first state to offer bets on single-game events, outside of Nevada. This also marks the first NASCAR track to setup on-site betting.
Typically, fans will choose to bet on the winner. 20-30 drivers are listed in addition to a ‘field’ option.
How much do you win?
It’s an odds system. Say you picked Kyle Busch to win the race at odds of 8-1 (example odds). If you put $10 on Busch and he won, you’d be handed back $90. You’d win $80 plus you’d get your initiate $10 bet in return.
You can also bet on head to head competition.
