The Centennial State is one of several territories where full online and offline gambling are expected to be in effect very shortly.
Following a statewide referendum in 2019, a bill has been signed by the governor that will allow casinos in the state to apply for sports wagering licenses with the ability to operate retail and online sportsbooks. The new sports betting law is set to formally come into practice in May 2020.
The state is home to several land-based casinos in the cities of Central, Black Hawk and Cripple Creek; all of these are former mining towns that now are home to a different type of riches. The state also has casinos located on its Native American land.
Colorado has just one live horse racing track, but bettors can wager on greyhound race and other simulcast racing events from around the country. If you are looking to bet on the NFL, the closest you can currently get is via a fantasy league from providers such as DraftKings which allow residents of Colorado to create accounts and compete for money.
The Colorado Gaming Commission previously helped to draft an online poker bill in 2013, which never became a full proposal but it looks as if state legislators are not opposed to following in the footsteps of other states that have adopted online poker access.
