Delaware makes a proposal for Internet gaming system

Written By: Maya Michaels | February 5, 2013 | Posted In Poker News

After completing legislation that legalised intra-state online gambling within half a year, the small eastern American state of Delaware has released a request for proposal for the setup of an Internet gaming system and associated services solution.

Launched on behalf of the Delaware State Lottery, the request for proposal is welcoming interested parties to post bids for the provision as a primary vendor of a back-end technology platform together with operations manager services.

The request for proposal is also asking for tenders about the provision to any new intra-state online gambling service as a non-primary vendor of games including keno, poker and bingo, identity verification, hosting, geo-location and e-wallet packages.

A statement from the Delaware State Lottery read “The Delaware State Lottery is issuing this request for proposal to invite interested vendors to submit proposals for the implementation of an Internet gaming system and services solution, which is a turnkey offering inclusive of a back-end technology platform, operations management and support services as well as an array of game content from multiple vendors to offer casino table games, video lottery games, poker, bingo and keno,”.

“The solution may at some point in the future integrate with the Delaware State Lottery’s future Internet lottery system and Internet sports wagering system, which does not currently exist and is not included in this request for proposal.”

To be in the running, the request for proposal states that potential vendors must have been in business with at least one private or government client for a minimum of one year and operated real-money games in regulated European or North American markets.

Primary vendor applicants need to have been operating in a regulated market for a couple of years as well as having offered at least 30 games or game options for a minimum of 1 year.

Oral presentations from possible vendors will be heard by the Delaware State Lottery between 1 and 12 April 2013.

The state wishes to start offering Internet gaming before September 30, 2013.
