Delta Corp Limited began life as Creole Holdings Company, a privately held company, before it was incorporated as a privately-held company in 1992. The company became a public limited company when Finolex Group acquired the majority of its shares.

The company later underwent a series of name changes. During 2003–04, Finolex Group divested their shareholding in the company and the company ceased to be a subsidiary. In 2003, the company was converted into a private limited company again.

Later, In 2007, the company changed its name to Arrow Webtex Ltd. In 2008, the company once again changed its name to Delta Corp Limited, which is currently used. In 2014 it opened a $50.4m property, The Deltin, in Daman, which is India’s largest integrated casino resort.

In 2015, Delta gained a license to operate a casino at its Deltin Suite in Goa. A year later, the Government of Goa extended the company’s offshore casino license which allowed it to operate casinos on the Mandovi river until 2017.

Delta now owns three offshore casinos in Goa: the Deltin Royale, Deltin JAQK Caravela and the luxury hotel-casino Deltin Suites.
As Delta’s Goa casinos are riverside operations, Delta Corp acquired jetties (Betim, Reis Magos, Barcolento) and six feeder boats to ferry customers from the mainland to the offshore casinos

In 2016, the company gained a license to operate casinos in Gangtok, Sikkim, which they named the Deltin Denzong Sikkim. It is located 6000 feet above shore level, boasting views of Mt Kanchenjunga, the third-highest peak in the world.

Deltin Caravela relaunched as the boutique Kings casino, a high-end gaming destination with 217+ gaming positions and 32+ live gaming tables, spread across 25,000 square feet.
