Harrington Raceway & Casino Review

Harrington Raceway & Casino is located at 15 West  Rider Road in Harrington, Delaware with a GPS location of 18500 S. DuPont Highway, Dover, Delaware.  It is one of the oldest tracks in the country and has sponsored a meet every year since they opened in 1946. In 1996 the Delaware Lottery opened a 500 machine slots casino under the former name of Midway Slots and Simulcast at Harrington Raceway which was jointly managed with Full House, a Nevada casino owner and operator. Ownership has since reverted to Harrington Racing, Inc. which is owned in the majority by the Delaware State Fair. All games are run by Delaware Lottery.

Today you will find over 2,000 video lottery terminals serving up everything from slots to video keno and video poker. Visitors will also find over 50 table games now, they might not all be running at the same time but you should find $2 and $5 blackjack all day, everyday, along with roulette, craps, 3-card poker and more.

If wagering on action is more to your liking their is a full card simulcast center open all year and parley/teaser card betting is allowed on NFL games (except Superbowl).

Patrons are never at a loss for places to eat or grab a drink and the menus range from track-side hot dogs and burgers to upscale dining in the clubhouse and casino.
