Many Delaware residents that live close to Pennsylvania or Maryland wonder if they can drive across state lines to use online sports betting apps like FanDuel.
The short answer is: Yes! You can bet with online sports betting apps in Maryland or Pennsylvania, even if you’re a Delaware resident.
There are no restrictions on where you live for using online sportsbooks. You just have to be physically present in the state to bet. Note that you may have a drive a few miles over the border so the apps’ location tracking can confirm that you’re definitely within the state lines.
For example, I live in northern Delaware just a few miles from the border. I drive up into Pennsylvania a few miles past the border and pull into a parking lot where I place my bets.
I’ve experimented with a few different locations in PA and found that I usually have to drive about 2 miles past the DE/PA border in order for the apps I use to confirm that I’m there.
You also don’t have to be in the state to sign up. You can sign up and deposit in Delaware so once you cross into MD or PA, you can start betting right away.
