CO Sports Betting Rules

When Colorado sports betting was passed into law, there were a few provisions made by the legislature. First of all, online sportsbooks will not go live until May of 2020 to give operators the chance to implement online platforms and get their licenses in order. When they do, there will likely be sportsbook bonuses to claim for new customers.

Secondly, legal sports betting only covers online betting at the moment. Casinos in the three municipalities with legal gambling will have to pass separate ballot initiatives to allow for in-person sports betting.

Additionally, there is a caveat with Colorado online sports betting: proposition or “prop” bets are not allowed on collegiate events. A “prop” bet is a bet on a specific in-game event that doesn’t have to do with the final outcome.

All of this in mind, sports betting apps in Colorado should be releasing right around the May 2020 start date. Of course, all CO online gambling is restricted to folks physically within the state borders, and they must be of legal gambling age.

As for online racebooks, horse racing betting is legal in Colorado as well. There is a list of licensed operators on the CO Dept. of Revenue website, which includes operators such as TVG and TwinSpires.

With TVG or TwinSpires you’re able to bet on races all over the country and, in some cases, internationally. To open an account with online racebooks, you need to be at least 18 years of age.
