A landmark day in Delaware today saw the full rollout of three sites for online poker and casino games for state residents.

After a seven-day trial period for licensees three casinos - Dover Downs, Delaware Park and Harrington Raceway - rolled out their full suites of games for the public.

Along with online poker comes roulette, blackjack and slots accessible to all residents and US citizens physically in the state of Delaware.

All three of the new sites are running on the 888 Holdings platform also being used by Nevada's real-money site. Liquidity is being shared by the three although given Delaware's population those numbers are still quite small.

Coming online soon in New Jersey.

Cash games currently offered are No-Limit Hold'em and PLO up to $2/$4. No multi-table tournaments have been added yet although they are expected soon.

Sit-and-Go's with buy-ins from $1 up to $100 are available plus a "live cam" option, called face2face, which lets opponents see each other as they play.

New Jersey Prepares for Nov. 26 Launch without PokerStars

Delaware is the second state to launch officially licensed online poker for residents after Nevada broke the seal in April of this year.

A third state - New Jersey - is preparing to roll out real-money online poker this month with one very notable absentee.

The Rational Group - parent company of PokerStars - is not included on the approved list of licensees for the initial rollout phase -- although that doesn't mean it won't eventually be approved.

The Borgata, Tropicana, Golden Nugget, Trump Plaza and Trump Taj Mahal casinos are the five licensed and ready to go in New Jersey.
