Delaware Sportsbooks COVID-19 Update (6/23/2020)

  • Post Category:Information

Now that Delaware has entered into Phase 2 of the coronavirus reopening, I wanted to post a quick update about the Delaware sportsbooks.

In short, none of the sportsbooks are open yet, but the raceways and casinos are partially open. While this isn’t the best news, there aren’t many sports to bet on right now anyways.

Here are the hours and rules of each:

Delaware Park

As mentioned, Delaware Park’s sportsbook isn’t open at this time and there is little information about when it will reopen. However, slots and table games are open at the casino, as is live racing and simulcasting at the trackside clubhouse. Both are limited to 60% capacity.

Here are the hours:


  • Weekdays: 8 am – 4 am
  • Weekends: 11 am on Friday – 4 am on Monday

Table Games

  • Weekdays: 11 am – 4 am
  • Weekends: 11 am on Friday – 4 am on Monday

Trackside Clubhouse

  • Daily: 11 am – 11 pm

Dover Downs

Even though the sportsbook isn’t open at Dover Downs, the casino is open for slots and tables games at 60% capacity. The hotel is also open with the same limits.

Here are the hours:

  • Weekdays: 10 am – 4 am
  • Weekends: 11 am on Friday – 4 am on Monday

Harrington Raceway & Casino

Like the other two sportsbooks, Harrington’s is closed, but other parts of the venue are open. Tables games (excluding poker) and simulcast are both open at 60% capacity.

Here are the hours:

  • Sunday – Thursday: 8 am – 4 am
  • Friday & Saturday: 24 hours

I am hopeful that the sportsbooks will be open within the next few weeks. Now that the NBA and MLB have plans in place to begin competition, it will be nice to get back into the Delaware sportsbooks to start betting again. I’m also cautiously optimistic that the NFL will start on time, leading to an action-packed fall with the NFL regular season, MLB playoffs, NBA playoffs, the Master’s, and more.

I’ll post another update as soon as more news come out.
