The Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) was established through the passage of House Bill Number 310 by the House of Representatives 145th General Assembly. The Division, under the supervision of the Secretary of Safety and Homeland Security, exercises exclusive jurisdiction for the criminal offenses relating to gaming that occur in a licensed video lottery facility, or which relate the operation of the Delaware Lottery.

The DGE also investigates the background, qualifications and suitability of each applicant who requires licensing by the Delaware Lottery and seeks to exclude persons whose presence is inimical to the interest of the Delaware Lottery through the creation of a list of excluded persons.

In addition, the DGE provides assistance to the Delaware Lottery in the consideration, promulgation and application of its rules and regulations and performs other duties necessary to maintain public confidence and trust in the credibility and integrity of lottery operations, agents and employees.
