Colorado sports betting has been a reality since 2019, when the state legislature approved online sportsbooks. Now, Colorado is one of the most robust sports betting markets in the US. It’s a true gambling hub, especially compared to some of its more hesitant neighboring states.
To bet online in Colorado, you need to meet two requirements. First, you must be 21 years old or above. Sportsbooks will confirm this using your photo ID, SSN, and some other identifying information when you sign up. Second, you need to be physically located in the state of Colorado. If you’re using a mobile device, this will be confirmed using the built-in GPS. If you use a desktop device, you’ll have to install a separate geolocation plugin to confirm you’re within state lines.
Those are the only two major requirements for Colorado sports betting.
As for the sportsbooks available, Colorado has a whopping 25 sportsbooks—almost one for each letter of the alphabet (though they don’t all start with a different letter, unfortunately). This makes Colorado one of the best sportsbook markets for bettors because there are so many options to choose from. Here’s the full list:
- Sports Illustrated Sportsbook
- FOX Bet
- Circa Sports
- Sky Ute
- Play maverick Sportsbook
Some of those might seem like random words, but we promise they’re full-fledged sportsbooks available in CO.
Colorado sports betting sites offer lines on professional and college sports in droves. The only restriction is a prohibition on college prop bets. You can bet on the outcome of a college game, but you can find bets on player passing yards or similar bets.
Whew, that’s quite a lot to cover. With the basics out of the way, let’s dive into everything a bettor might want to know about Colorado sports betting.
