has three pari-mutuel facilities that offer slot machines:
Delaware Park (302-994-2521) in Stanton; Dover Downs
(800-441-7223) in Dover; and Midway Slots and Simulcast
(800-88SLOTS) in Harrington.
the slot machines are video lottery terminals (VLTs)
because they are operated in conjunction with the
Delaware Lottery. Unlike VLTs in other states, however,
Delaware's machines pay out in cash. The machines
also play other games, including video online poker
games, video keno, and video online blackjack games.
The minimum age is twenty one at all tracks.

blinds and antes are essentially payments for the
privilege of receiving cards, players cannot be allowed
to skip on those payments just because they happen
to be away from the table when it is their turn to
make them. In casinos, players must post make-up blinds
when they return to a game. Because the games rotate
at home, I find it much easier to levy those make-up
payments in advance, just after the player leaves;
with that accomplished, the player can rejoin the
game at any time with no hassle.
