Harness racing history was made in Delaware this afternoon (Monday May 24), as live table games opened at Harrington Raceway and Casino, as part of a soft opening. Harrington was first in the 'First State' to open their table games operation among Delaware's three racinos.
The opening was marketed as an introductory to table games that featured lower limit bets with play available from 2-10 p.m. through Thursday May 27.
The grand opening will take place at 12 noon on Friday, May 28, which is when the 24-hour action will commence.
Besides the traditional blackjack, craps, and roulette a variety of carnival games are on the gaming floor such as Ultimate Texas Hold Em, Paigow Poker, Casino War, Let it Ride, Three-Card Poker, and Mini-Baccarat as well as traditional Texas Hold ‘Em poker.
Delaware horsemen will benefit from the proceeds of table games and will receive 4.5 percent of revenues.
