Online in Delaware

Fourteen operators and suppliers of online gaming platforms worldwide have responded to a request for proposals from the state of Delaware for contracts to operate online gaming and poker through the state lottery. The Delaware Lottery’s RFP stipulates that suppliers must be capable of going live with online casinos by September.
 
The 14 bids come from some of the most well-known names in online gaming worldwide, including 888 Holdings, PokerStars, Amaya Gaming’s Ongame Network, London-listed Stan James Plc., table game supplier SHFL entertainment, and slot-manufacturing giant International Game Technology.

The RFP was very specific that any licensee must be ready to go with a poker or gaming platform by the fall. “All proposed components of the solution must be delivered, installed, implemented, acceptance-tested and ready to be operational by the agreed-upon schedule,” says the RFP.

The RFP specifies four major classes of supplier being sought: Backend Technology Platform Provider, which will provide foundation software; Operations Management Provider, experienced online gaming groups that will manage the components of the sites; Game Content Vendors, which will “develop and offer games that are found in a typical casino environment;” and Support Services Vendors, to “provide third-party expertise required for a robust and secure internet gaming operation.”

Among other conditions, all operators must have at least one year of experience in online gaming operations, offering real-money games in North America or Europe.
