Delaware Lottery Director Wayne Lemons has given final approval for table games to begin 10 a.m. Friday at Harrington Raceway following a test run that went without any hitches.
"I just signed the letter of authorization," Lemons said in an interview this morning with The Press of Atlantic City.
Harrington is the first of Delaware's three racetrack casinos to introduce Atlantic City-style table games such as blackjack, craps and roulette. Delaware Park and Dover Downs are expected to follow in the coming weeks.
Harrington began tests of low-limit wagering this week as a dress rehearsal for the formal launch of table games. Spectrum Gaming Group, a casino consulting firm based in Linwood, helped Delaware lottery officials to oversee the tests.
"It's gone very well, so now we're turning them loose," Lemons said.
