Colorado Sports Betting Set To Launch May 1 With State’s Casinos Closed

Regulators of Colorado Division of Gaming are moving ahead and fans will soon be able to wager on whatever limited offerings are made available. Due to the fact that casinos are not permitted to open by then under Gov. Jared Polis’ “safer at home” rules, the industry will debut entirely online with more than a dozen mobile and web-based apps.

According to state statute, sportsbook operators must partner with one of Colorado’s 35 local casinos to enter the market. For several providers, Colorado is the only place they’ll be available outside of their home market. Fans will have their pick of 17 digital sportsbooks currently licensed to operate in the state such as DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM and BetRivers who will be available to Colorado residents starting May 1. Others, including PointsBet, SBK, FOX Bet and BetWildwood, expect to go live shortly thereafter.
