Gaming at Dover Downs

The 165,000 square foot casino at Dover Downs is 100% smoke-free and open 24/7. Gaming is spread over three floors of the property. There are literally thousands of gambling options available to players.

The slots, video keno, and video blackjack machines are actually video lottery terminals (VLTs) served from the Delaware Lottery, but the machines are made by the same people who bring you Las Vegas and Atlantic City slots. No machine has higher than 95% RTP by law, nor less than 87%. The difference between a VLT and a casino slot is that a casino slot has an  onboard random number generator and program, while a VLT goes through a central server.

Sports betting was legalized in 2009 and table games came into the casino in 2010. Tables are located on the first floor in the casino.

Online gaming is available from Dover Downs when you are within the state of Delaware.
