According to a report by delawareonline.com, in the early hours of Friday, May 8, 2009, after what is described as "intense" negotiations, a sports betting bill has passed in the house of the state of Delaware.

The article states that negotiations were among governor Jack Markell’s administation, party leaders and representatives of the state’s three casinos. The meetings reportedly began early in the afternoon, but went late into the night. The bill was approved the house with a 30-4 vote.

The sports betting bill had previously died on the house floor Tuesday night.

The delawareonline.com report states that sports betting bill will head to the senate. The compromise bill includes the addition of table games as early as possible and increases the split for the state's share in slot revenues.
