Delaware officials are moving quickly to implement full-scale sports betting in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling clearing the way for states to implement wagering schemes.

After consulting with the state attorney general's office on the impact of Monday's court ruling, state finance officials say they have determined that there are no legal obstacles to moving forward with single-game wagering in a variety of sports.

Department of the Finance officials said Thursday that they will begin training lottery and casino staff next week in preparation for a June launch of full-scale sports betting.

Officials say sports betting will be restricted to the state's three casinos and will not include wagering on collegiate games involving Delaware colleges and universities.
