After HB 1327 was signed into law, Proposition DD was voted on by Colorado voters to finalize sports betting in the state. The law fully takes effect in May of 2020, with online sportsbooks likely to be the first out of the gate.
If you’re in the Rocky Mountain State and you’re going to be 21 or older when the law takes effect, look forward to betting on your favorite sports from a whole slew of betting apps. Casinos across the state have the legal go-ahead to offer both online and in-person sportsbooks, while the latter may take some time to implement.
There are quite a few options available if you’re looking to bet on casino games in an exciting, live setting. Betting on those same games online might not be possible for a while in Colorado. Still, the world of regulated gambling moves quickly, and revenue reports from other states may convince Colorado lawmakers to add online casinos to the state’s offerings.
If you’re looking for Colorado betting on horses, there’s only one racetrack available: Arapahoe Park outside of Aurora. There are also quite a few OTB locations across the Centennial State.
In addition, there are plenty of recommended online services that offer bets on races all over the world. Bet straight from the browser or a smartphone app, and don’t forget to cash in on promotions and bonuses.
There is potential for gambling in Colorado– the state would benefit from expansions, online casino gambling, and more. Still, there’s a lot to look forward to when sports betting goes live in May of 2020. Only time will tell what kind of apps, promotional content, and sports are going to be offered in CO.
