Sports Lottery Retailer Locations Double;
Pro Football Preseason Wagering To Begin August 7

Dover, DE - August 1, 2013 - It’s game time in the State of Delaware. With less than one week to go before the start of the Pro Football preseason (Thursday, August 8) the Delaware Sports Lottery announces it will kick off its 2013 season with more than double the amount of Sports Lottery Retailer locations to offer Pro Football wagering. Preseason Pro Football wagering is scheduled to begin Wednesday, August 7.

In addition to Delaware’s Sportsbook locations at its three racetrack casinos, more than 60 retailers have signed on for the 2013 – 2014 season to offer Pro Football wagering to adults 21 and older. The 60-plus Sports Lottery Retail locations include select restaurants, pubs and existing Lottery agents throughout the state.

“With more than double the Sports Lottery locations, it’s shaping up to be a very exciting year,” said Delaware Lottery Director Vernon Kirk. “Based on the success and demand of Sports Lottery last year, we’ve seen a tremendous growth and interest from new as well as existing retailers. We continue to add Sports Lottery Retailers daily and players enjoy the fact that they can now place their wagers in some of the very same locations where they regularly watch their favorite sports teams,” said Kirk.

Many of the new Sports Lottery locations are in Kent and Sussex counties. “We were very successful this year at filling in the gaps in towns and areas where Retailers were scarce making it much more convenient for our players to have access to place their wagers,” said Kirk.

More Sports Lottery locations are not the only thing new for the 2013 season. Sports Lottery will offer a Totals (Over/Under) Wager. This wager will not be available during the preseason, but will be offered during Pro Football regular season. The Half-Point, Teaser and Super Teaser Parlay Cards will carry all totals. The $100,000 Parlay Card will have select totals on occasion. There is not a Totals-Only Card.

Preseason Wagering
Preseason wagering starts Wednesday, August 7, and runs until Friday, August 30. The Early Bird Parlay and Pro Football Championship Futures cards will be the only two cards available during preseason. Wagering is available daily on both cards.

Preseason Early Bird Parlay Card
Early Bird Parlay Cards may be played daily throughout the preseason and on Mondays and Tuesdays during the regular season. For official rules on how to place Pro Football parlay card wagers at the sports terminal, visit

Pro Football Championship Futures
No card is required. Players may wager on any or all of the 32 Pro Football teams to win the Championship Game. This wager is offered for the entire current season. For more information on how to place Pro Football Championship wagers at the sports terminal, visit

Where to Play
Parlay wagering cards for weekly Pro Football games are available each Wednesday at all Sports Lottery Retailer and Sportsbook locations. In addition, futures wagering for the 2014 Pro Football Championship Game is available daily at all Sports Lottery venues.
