Opening a Sportsbook in Your Hometown


While the legality of operating a sportsbook varies widely between jurisdictions, the Supreme Court’s decision is catalyzing changes in the law. The only legal sportsbook in the United States is located in Las Vegas. If you’d like to open a sportsbook in your hometown, here are some tips to consider. If you’re not familiar with Delaware sportsbooks, we recommend you visit Oaklawn or Betly to get started.

Delaware sportsbooks

Although Delaware sportsbooks do not operate online, the state still allows residents to bet on their favorite games at offshore sites. Sports offered by offshore sportsbooks include horse racing, football, baseball, basketball, soccer, darts, eSports, and more. There are a number of Delaware sportsbooks available online. In addition to the usual sports, Delaware residents can place wagers on various occupancies and the NCAA Basketball Championship.

The state has an extensive population. New Castle County has more than one million people, and sports enthusiasts gravitate to the Philly teams. Wilmington is about thirty miles away from Philadelphia, so Delaware sports fans have a wide variety of betting opportunities. However, Delaware residents can also wager on the games of other states. For example, BetOnline offers an extensive selection of NHL teams, and Delaware residents can place wagers on future hockey matches by placing straight bets, spreads, teasers, and parlays.

Oaklawn sportsbook

The Oaklawn racetrack and casino in North Little Rock opened a full-service sportsbook last week, and the general manager was among the first to place a legal bet on a sporting event – the Dallas Cowboys against the New York Giants. The Oaklawn racetrack & sports book is powered by SBTech, which became the first supplier to enter the legal American sports betting market after PASPA was repealed. Oaklawn will be operated by Churchill Downs Interactive, the same company that runs the racetrack.

The sportsbook features the usual fare of pro basketball and ice hockey games, along with lines on combat sports, golf, tennis, and Olympic events. In addition, there are also a variety of betting options on the University of Arkansas Razorbacks, which represent the University of Arkansas in thirteen sports. The sportsbook is expected to be up and running by the time of the Super Bowl, so there’s no reason to wait to start placing your bets!

Betly sportsbook

The Betly sportsbook is part of Delaware North’s empire, but it lacks finesse in some areas. While its mobile app is a convenient and efficient way to deposit money, it lacks finesse in others. The sportsbook is only available in certain states, but it is expected to enter the “online-only” legal sports betting market in Tennessee very soon. In addition to this, it is looking for opportunities in other states where online sports betting is formally licensed.

The free bets offered by Betly are not particularly generous. The first $100 of your free bet credit is subject to a 1x rollover requirement within 30 days, and winning free bets are not included. Other sportsbooks offer higher bonuses, including BetMGM and Caesars. Although the bonus at Betly is not large, it is easy to navigate. This sportsbook is popular among gamblers who prefer US sportsbooks.
