In November of 2019, the voters of Colorado legalized sports gambling in their state via referendum. Online sports betting apps are now legal in Colorado and regulated, sportsbooks have yet to be licensed.
Colorado sportsbooks are available online as well as in brick and mortar establishments.
There are a lot of competition in the state for your sports gambling dollar as Colorado has not instituted many restrictions on the availability of their sportsbook licenses.
State-wide Brick and Mortar Sportsbooks
As mentioned, there are several online sportsbook apps that are up and running in Colorad. Download and sign up with Fox Bet Colorado or bet on sports with BetMGM.
There are already three sportsbooks built in the mountain cities of Black Hawk, Central City, and Cripple Creek. DraftKings has already announced plans for a brick and mortar operation as well.
While there is no requirement to have a brick and mortar sportsbook to operate online as well, many providers are doing just that.
Available Betting Apps in Colorado
- Fox Bet
- BET365 (expected)
- William Hill (expected)
- Poinstbet (soon)
All of Colorado’s sports betting industry, online or on land, is ready.
However, just as with the state-wide brick and mortar sportsbooks in construction as of this writing, so are the online sportsbooks. The state would like for the entire operation to be up and running by May of 2020. However, only time will tell if any of the sportsbooks, online or on land, are ready by that time.
Best Bonuses and Promotions
Colorado sports betting fans can now enjoy several bonus offers from the local betting apps and receive signup promotions. Try BetMGM free bet bonus up to 500, use their active promo code when registering.
As we’ve seen in states such as New Jersey, plenty of competition brings plenty of sportsbook bonuses and promotions.
Sports Available for Betting
Much like the bonuses and promotions, the sports available for betting in Colorado promises to be competitive as well. This is another avenue sportsbooks use to entice players into their sportsbook door, whether virtual or brick and mortar.
Of course, all of the popular sports will be available, but watch for some sportsbook attempt to stand out from the pack with more exotic and international offerings.
Of course, not much information is available as of yet concerning the payment options available in Colorado. However, again thanks to plenty of competition, look for sportsbooks to make the entire process as quick and easy as possible.
Legal Betting Age
The legal sports gambling age in Colorado is 21 years old, whether in an online or on-land sportsbook.
