Sports Betting in Colorado

November 2019 saw Colorado’s betting future brighten for the first time. Despite a paper-thin victory in the state election, Colorado has since grown to embrace sports betting with few restrictions imposed on either retail or online sports betting.

May 1, 2020 signaled a new dawn in Colorado betting history, with the state allowed to legally bet on sports for the first time. DraftKings, FanDuel and BetRivers have all been involved in Colorado sports betting from day one and are being rewarded for their faith. 

Like other big betting states – Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Nevada and Indiana – Colorado hit over $200 million in wagers placed (betting handle) during September 2020. Colorado is certainly here to stay in a betting sense, with circa 30 sportsbooks expected to reside there in the near future.

What do I need to do to join a sportsbook in Colorado?

Luckily for you, there are very little restrictions to joining a sportsbook in Colorado. You must be a Denver Broncos fan. NO, we’re just kidding! 😂

You also don’t need to complete in-person registration; visiting a casino to validate your sports betting account — commonplace in some states. What you must do however, is enable geolocation. Coloradan sportsbooks must be able to verify you are in fact within the state before any wager is placed. 

Most sportsbooks will ask to use your location when you first use their betting app, just make sure you allow it, otherwise you won’t be able to bet.

If you were to travel to a different state where sports betting is legal, you would be unable to use your Colorado sportsbook if it is state-specific. In that instance, all you’d need to do is download that state’s version of your app. If your book is universal, then you’ll have no problems betting from your usual app.

Good news too if you’re visiting Colorado, you’re able to bet so long as you register online. If you’re within state lines, you’re welcome to bet in Broncos country.

How old do I have to be to use a Colorado sportsbook?

You must be at least 21 years of age to use a sportsbook, or bet in the state of Colorado. This includes betting within a casino or using online books.

Verifying your age is a key component of online sports betting accounts, so if you’re not 21, there’s no getting around it.

What sports can’t I bet on in Colorado?

Live Betting on College Sports

Coloradans can luckily bet on the hometown Buffalos or any other College Football and College Basketball teams, which is somewhat of a rarity in American sports betting. However, live betting on college sports is illegal, so get those bets in just before kickoff or tipoff and you’ll be fine.

Betting on High School Sports

Unsurprisingly, there is no scope to bet on high school sports of any kind in Colorado.

You’ve learned all there is to know about sportsbooks in Colorado, what now? Sign up with one of our trusted books to receive an exclusive promotion and get started. If Von Miller stays, maybe a Denver Broncos Super Bowl futures bet isn’t looking all too bad!
