The bill would introduce more options for competitive mobile sports wagering – allowing casinos to partner with multiple sports books.

Supporters say the bill would benefit both marketplace competition and state revenue.

“The addition of online sports betting in the First State means additional revenue will benefit programs for the treatment, education and assistance of compulsive gamblers and problem gambling,” Cooke said.
