The September figures were the highest Delaware has reported in its short history of regulation.From when Delaware launched its regulated sports betting market on June 5 to the end of October, punters have bet a total of $54.5m on sports wagers in the state.In contrast, New Jersey, which has also moved to legalise sports betting after the ruling on PASPA, took $184m in September alone. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement is due to announce its results for October later today (Thursday).
