But poker disappoints with its first decrease in in four months.
The latest numbers from the Delaware Lottery show that online gambling revenues were up again in May 2015 on a monthly basis, with the state's three internet gaming operators collectively reporting $133,697 - 1.2% up on April 2015.
Harrington Raceway was the worst in performance, delivering just $20,759 for a 26.4% monthly decline from the preceding month.
By comparison, online gambling revenue at Dover Downs hit $39,620 in May, improving on April's results by 12.3 percent. The third operator, Delaware Park, recorded a 6.8% improvement to $73,316.
318 new signups were recorded by the three sites during May 2015, an encouraging rise of 51% over April 2015, when 210 players registered.
The poker metric was disappointing, recording the first decrease in four months at an overall $39,245 in revenue - down 19% on the preceding month despite a second month of shared player pool activity with Nevada.
