Delaware Expects to Launch Online Poker by the End of September

The Director of the Delaware Lottery Office has established September 30 as the target, go-live date for online poker in the State of Delaware (pursuant to a law passed in late 2012).  This date was set forth in the Lottery Office’s recent request for technology solutions providers, as recounted here.

“All proposed components of the Solution must be delivered, installed, implemented, acceptance tested and ready to be operational by the agreed-upon schedule,” the request stated.

The proposal seeks suppliers in four areas: Backend Technology Platform Provider, Operations Management Provider, Game Content Vendors, and Support Services Vendors.

The backend provider would essentially offer a foundation software, while the operations provider would manage the components of the sites and have experience in online gaming, according to the RFP. “Game content vendors develop and offer games that are found in a typical casino environment,” while “support service vendors provide third party expertise required for a robust and secure Internet gaming operation.”

Delaware’s progress over the coming months will be of the utmost interest to gaming attorneys, as well as those interested in Internet poker law in general.
