What are Delaware Parlay Cards?

Delaware was the first state to legalize sports betting, but it’s only available at casinos. Online and mobile betting isn’t offered the way it is in other states that have legalized sports gambling. Delaware’s alternative is Delaware parlay cards, which are offered by the Delaware Lottery. These cards can be found at bars, stores, and casinos. 

How do the Cards Work?

Delaware parlay cards have fixed odds located on the back of each card. Each card has a $2 minimum bet and must include at least three legs to make the parlay.

Who can Play Delaware Parlay Cards?

Anyone 21+ in Delaware that can present a photo I.D. and a Social Security card upon collection can play.

Types of Cards

White Parlay Card

The most popular type of Delaware parlay card is the white half-point card. These cards have point spreads and totals listed for NFL and college football matchups for that specific weekend. All spreads are a half-point, eliminating the possibility of a push on one of the legs. The odds for these half-point parlay cards are consistent regardless of which games and picks you choose.

Pink Parlay Card

The pink card is a reverse teaser, where instead of getting more favorable lines at smaller payouts, you get worse lines at higher payouts. These lines are shifted up to seven points, so a -3 favorite would become -10.

The gold card is the $100,000 parlay card in which for $5 you have to correctly bet 15 NFL games against the spread to win $100,000. However, if multiple people win then the payout is divided.

Early Bird Card

Finally, there are early bird cards for NFL games that allow you to fill out your card on Monday and Tuesday instead of Wednesday when they are typically released.
