The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected an appeal in which Delaware sought to expand its sports betting lottery beyond professional football.
As the Delaware government awaits the results of an independent study into the expansion of casino gambling in the state, a study commissioned by three racetracks concluded the addition of casinos will cannibalize the market.
Delaware has asked the full Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to revisit a decision made by a three-judge panel to authorize only limited sports betting at three racetracks in the state.
The Delaware Supreme Court said a proposed sports-betting lottery doesn't conflict with the state constitution.
