Delaware and New Jersey, two of the three US states with a regulated iGaming industry, have entered into an agreement that will allow players in Delaware to participate in online casino games hosted in Atlantic City.

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement said Thursday that it has approved Delaware Lottery’s use of online gaming content hosted on Atlantic City servers, with Scientific Games and Caesars set to deliver content to the Lottery.

SG Interactive’s online casino games will be provided to the Delaware Lottery from servers located in Caesars’ data centre in Atlantic City, with those games only available to Delaware online gaming patrons.

The agreement is the first time that online casino content has been shared between US states with regulated iGaming.

“This arrangement exemplifies a great collaborative effort between the Delaware Lottery, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, Scientific Games, and Caesars Interactive Entertainment,” said David Rebuck, director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

That sentiment was echoed by Vernon Kirk, director of the Delaware Lottery, who complemented the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement for its professionalism and diligence throughout the administrative and regulatory process

Marco Ceccarelli, senior vice president and chief information officer, Caesars Interactive Entertainment, added: “We are happy to do our part assisting regulators in New Jersey and Delaware and appreciate their progressive and innovative work to help continue to grow and push the regulated online gaming market forward in the United States.”
