Colorado Sports Betting Online

Colorado certainly wasn’t among the first batch of states to dive headlong into sports betting online; the state’s bill wasn’t approved until the summer of 2019, and was subject to a public referendum since the implementation of legalized sports betting would lead to increased taxpayers for state residents.

The emergence of sports betting in The Centennial State was by no means a slam dunk; voters approved the legalization of sports wagering by a razor-thin margin in November 2019, setting the stage for Colorado to enter the sports betting landscape in the new year. And even with approval secured, it has taken several months for the process to advance to the point where legal sports betting finally became a reality on the morning of May 1, 2020.
