 Delaware Greyhounds Horse Tracks, Slots 

Delaware Casinos and Gambling

The state of Delaware prides itself as being “The First” hence their state tag “It’s good being first” and it reflects in their stand on gambling which is a strong promotional tool to encourage tourists to visit their great Delaware state. On one hand you have their casinos raceways and slots which in turn promote Delaware’s parks, hotels restaurants and landmarks. No doubt, Delaware’s position is on the forefront of the ever evolving yet time tested game of chance, gambling. There are three casinos in Delaware: Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, Delaware Park & Casino and Harrington Raceway & Slots.

Aside from the abundant number of casinos and slots, the state of Delaware has greyhound parks, motorcross raceways, simulcasting, harness racing, horse tracks and pari-mutuel facilities of all forms to offer, and as a plus for gambling enthusiasts, these facilities are located within or in very close proximity to lodging and accommodations to suit your needs.

Among one of the more visited gambling spots is Harrington Raceway of Delaware, which has been around for 58 years offering of Delaware greyhound racing and horse tracks.

In 1996 a gaming legislation in Delaware allowed the state’s three racetracks to have video lottery machines. Presently, the Midway Slots and Simulcast at Harrington Raceway operates 1151 full service machines. Approximately 12% of the machine wins goes towards purses. This has resulted in Harrington Raceway being able to distribute $110,000 in purses nightly and establishing itself as a top track on the national circuit.

The increased purses has provided a capitol base for Delaware horsemen making it possible to upgrade their racing stables with faster, sounder and more consistent race horses. In addition, Delaware owned or bred horses get a 20% bonus on any Delaware owned or bred race.


Gambling is the game of chance. Some people live by it, some people live for it and others just enjoy it. Whether it be putting a few numbers down at the lottery, playing a few hands at the blackjack table in casinos, or betting at the track, gambling holds a certain prestige that people are drawn to. As far as history can tell people have lost as well as gained from gambling in one form or another.

In the present age, there are literally millions of options on how to try your luck and with the onset of the internet, millions more from online casinos to betting on sports to gambling in an online lottery. People sell them and people buy into it. What are a few bucks for a chance to win big? To be rich beyond all reason. Ah to live the dream… to dream, perhaps.

Yes, there are lots of options for those who like the game of gambling, and a lot of ways to do it in the comfort of your own home. So what draws us to the big lights, the huge crowds and the sounds of slots, cards, dice and the falling of chips of casinos? It is exactly that. It’s tangible, visible and to put it flatly a bit of a high even before you place your first bet.
