Delaware Lottery Director Vernon Kirk said in an interview that after conversations with vendors who would produce the software for online gambling, he believes it is possible to create a reliable system for ensuring gamblers are 21 and in Delaware, but the state has not yet developed a method for doing so, and it certainly hasn't tested one. He said the state hopes to get online lottery sales started by early 2013, but online slots and table games will take longer. He said he has some ideas for placing limits on players' accounts in an effort to combat problem gambling, but they have not been settled. The tax rates haven't been finalized yet either, but he said the intent is to have them mirror those of brick-and-mortar casinos. In Delaware, that means 29.4 percent for table games and 43.5 percent for slots, a far cry from the 10 percent tax rate Mr. Cordish suggested.
