Going into minute detail about 25 different sportsbooks would be a hefty task. Instead, we’ll run through the highlights and discuss the best sportsbooks you can play at in Colorado. Keep in mind you have many options, so these aren’t the only places to bet. Instead, treat this list as our top recommended sites, but remember you can play at any of the state’s 25 sportsbooks.
Look, “King” is right there in the name, and it’s well earned. DraftKings is one of the best sportsbooks in any market, and Colorado is no exception. The sportsbooks run smoothly through any function. The odds and lines are competitive. The promos are fantastic. Everything about DraftKings just works as it should. There’s a reason it’s a top choice among many bettors across the US.
Add on top of that a great welcome bonus—a 20% deposit match up to $1,000—and you’ve got every reason to sign up for DraftKings Colorado.
Not ready to shell out a full $5,000 to get the full bonus? Not to worry. You can deposit what you’re comfortable with, and DraftKings will match 20% of that. So if you deposit $100, you’ll get a $20 match.
There’s a reason you often hear FanDuel and DraftKings mentioned in tandem. The fierce rivals both provide excellent sports betting experiences. For our money, FanDuel is the top choice in terms of sheer aesthetic and functionality.

When you sign up for FanDuel, you’ll get a no-sweat first bet up to $1,000. Place your first wager, and if it loses, you’ll be refunded your wager amount in free bets.

It integrates well with the company’s media offering, so it’s an ideal fit for fans of Sports Illustrated who also enjoy betting.

PointsBet is one of the most unique sportsbooks available in any market, Colorado included. It has all the trappings of the other sportsbooks on this list—great odds, intuitive interface, solid promotions—but it goes a step further. There are two features that only PointsBet offers.
First is a name your bet feature, which allows you to tweet at PointsBet and request a market they don’t already have listed on the sportsbook. The trading team can set the odds and list the market for you to bet on.
Second is PointsBetting, a bet type in which the degree of your win or loss directly impacts your payout. It’s high risk, high reward.
Signing up for PointsBet Colorado gets you two risk-free bets: one traditional bet up to $500 and one PointsBetting wager up to $1,500.
Caesars offers an all-around great sports betting experience. Like the other sportsbooks on this list, it has a great app, solid odds, and good promos. The added benefit of Caesars is a phenomenal rewards program, in which your credits can also be used or earned at Caesars land-based properties.
Sign up for Caesars CO and you’ll get a risk-free bet up to $1,250 plus 1,000Reward Credits and 1,000 Tier Credits.
BetRivers has carved out quite a name for itself in many markets. The sportsbook excels at localized promotions and offers, making it a great choice anywhere, including Colorado.
New BetRivers bettors get a 2nd chance bet up to $500 when they sign up. It’s essentially the same as a risk-free bet.
Last but not least on our list is BetMGM, another land-based gambling juggernaut that made the leap into the online space. BetMGM calls itself the king of sportsbooks, and it certainly earns the crown in many ways.
BetMGM boasts a wide array of sports to bet on, plenty of promotions, and a recently redesigned app that makes the entire experience more streamlined than ever.
BetMGM’s bonus is a risk-free first bet up to $1,000.
