According to a report by, Delaware governor Jack Markell is trying to get sports betting legalized at the state's three casinos as well as 10 more venues.

The article states that Markell's plan, which was unveiled Thursday, March 19, is anticipated to bring $55 million in revenue from sports betting to the state in the upcoming fiscal year. Some of the $55 million would be from 'crossover' betting.

Under Markell’s plan, up to 10 venues such as sports bars, restaurants and the like would be able to offer sports betting. However, straight bets -- which are common in Las Vegas -- would not be permitted. Instead, gamblers would have to place parlay bets, trying to predict the outcome of two or more games at a time.
