Colorado Sports Betting

Last updated: Feb 05, 2024

Colorado may be based in the Rockies, but the launch of sports betting has been very smooth for the state. After a referendum in November 2019 to confirm legislation passed earlier in the year, online and retail sports betting launched in May 2020. Every sportsbook needs to partner with a land-based casino, and there are plenty in CO. This has led to 26 operators going live in the state, making it one of the most diverse sports betting states in the US.

With so many passionate sports fans in the state, the Colorado sports betting market has exploded in popularity. In January 2022 online, where there were five weeks of NFL action, including postseason games, the state handled nearly $600 million, the 6th most in the US.

Outside the professional sports teams that call the state home, Colorado hosts several sports events which loads of sports fans enjoy. See some of the best below. 

Colorado National Speedway 

Colorado National Speedway is a member of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series and is a regular venue for NASCAR events. It hosts the ARCA Menards Series West and the King of the Wing Sprint Car Series. Opened in 1965, the site sits at the bottom of the Rocky Mountains and has hosted the ARCA Menards Series West nineteen times since 1995.

Rocky Mountain Showdown

The Rocky Mountain Showdown was first played between the college football teams Colorado Buffaloes and Colorado State Rams in 1893 when Colorado beat its in-state rival 70-3. Played nearly every year from 1893-2019, from 1998, games were held at the home of the Denver Broncos, Mile High Stadium.

The series was canceled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since then, both teams have agreed to return to ‘Home and Home’ arrangements. This ended the twenty-one-year spell of neutral site games between the two colleges.

UFC Fight Night

The very first Ultimate Fighting Championship event was held in Denver in November 1993, with UFC 1 fought at McNichols Sports Arena. It also hosted the second pay-per-view event, UFC 2: No Way Out, at Mammoth Gardens.

Colorado would have to wait for 133 complete editions of UFC for the MMA series to return to the Rocky Mountain State, despite a special event, ‘The Ultimate Ultimate’ of UFC 7.5, taking place in 1995 in Denver. UFC 135, held in September 2011 at the Ball Arena, marked the return of UFC to Colorado, and three other events have been held in the State.

Colorado Responsible Gambling

The Problem Gambling Coalition of Colorado (PGCC) works with the Colorado Gaming Association to offer problem gamblers a self-exclusion program. Adding yourself to a self-exclusion list means you’ll be removed from all casino marketing lists, have your memberships canceled with the state’s casinos, and prevent deposits from being made at any Colorado casino or sportsbook.

Unlike other states, this self-exclusion program is not a temporary measure but a method of permanently ceasing gambling activities. You can download a form from the Colorado Gaming website to add yourself to the self-exclusion list. You’ll need to complete this form, get it notarized, include a copy of your driver’s license, and send the completed form to the offices of the PGCC.

In addition, sportsbooks regulated by the Colorado Division of Gaming often offer methods for you to gamble responsibly, including tools like deposit and time limits. In addition, there is often guidance for players to third-party help, such as the National Center for Responsible Gambling.
