Delaware Launches Free Online Poker

Delaware's Double Down Casino

Delaware officially launched play-money poker today, which puts the state one step closer to real-money games.

All three of the Delaware casinos have banded together to introduce a free-to-play gambling app on Facebook. Branded as Double Down Casino the app offers poker, video slots, blackjack and roulette.

The poker part of the site launched with No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha and Five-Card Draw.

The play money games were introduced to help lay the framework for real-money online games, which are slated to debut at the end of October.

888 Holdings and Delaware slots system manager Scientific Games are set to provide software for the real-money games.

One of three states that voted to legalize online poker, Delaware is in a league of its own compared to established gambling powerhouses Nevada and New Jersey.

Las Vegas already offers real-money games thanks to Ultimate Poker while New Jersey is still waiting for its first online for-money poker site.
