The best bets and resources to make you more profitable
Colorado might be the mecca of sports betting. New Jersey was the first state to legalize it, but Colorado has been the most active state in adding new sportsbooks.
Mobile sports betting became legal in Colorado in May 2020, and now there are already two dozen sportsbooks apps. Colorado itself has about 3 dozen casinos that are eligible to open sports betting to the public, so the sports betting scene in Colorado is growing as we speak! It feels like a monthly occurrence in which they are adding sportsbooks to the market.
|Is sports betting legal in Colorado?||Yes! Went legal in May 2020|
|Which sportsbooks can you bet on in Colorado?||A bunch! 26 total, with them all listed below: Bally Bet, Barstool, BetMGM, BetMonarch, BetRivers, Betway, BetWildwood, Circa Sports, DraftKings, Elite, FanDuel, FoxBet, MaximBet, PlayMaverick, PlayUp, SBK, Sky Ute, Sports Illustrated, SuperBook, Tipico, Betfred, Caesars, theScore, PointsBet, WynnBET.|
|Colorado sports betting rules||The only rules are that you must be 21 years or older and physically located in Colorado (confirmed by your phone GPS, or geocomply software)|
Unlike other states such as Virginia and New Jersey, no sports are off-limits. The only type of bet that you can’t wager on in Colorado are college player props. But, Colorado colleges are fair game.
Caesars Sportsbook is a great sportsbook, with a ton of good promotions and odds boosts. We like to call Caesars Sportsbook the OddsBoost god because of the sheer volume of odds boosts they have on a daily basis. They also have some really good promos as well, highlighted below.
BetMGM also has a lot of odds boosts and promos to take advantage of. It also has a really nice user interface when scrolling through the different types of markets/props you want to bet. It’s very intuitive and easy to navigate. Some of the promos are highlighted below:
PointsBet follows suit with the previous books that offer a generous sign-up bonus. New users can get up to $2000 in 2 free bets. They also have daily odds boosts and generally a sleek interface that is easy to navigate.
Tipico is a great sportsbook, however, it is only legal in two states – Colorado and New Jersey. They have one of the larger sign-up bonuses available. Tipico is interesting because it is an app-based sportsbook, unlike all other competitors which have websites along with their apps.
BetRivers also has a nice signup bonus in which they will deposit match up to $250. Other than that, they have nice daily promos and odds boosts that they call “House Specials.” We love betting those House Specials, as they normally have some profitable bets to make.
BetFred is only legal in 4 states and isn’t the most well-known name in the US, but don’t let that fool you – this is a great sportsbook. They have actually been in business since 1967 (founded in England), so BetFred has decades of experience and has a good reputation in the industry.
Coloradans are lucky, as Maxim Bet is only legal in Colorado. They have a very generous sign-up bonus that compares with any sportsbook out there. They have a deposit match of 100%, up to $2,000, as well as $22 in free bets. Other than that, Maxim Bet is easy to use with a sleek interface.
Sure does! They were not the first state to legalize mobile sports betting, but they certainly have taken the most advantage of it being legal.
The most of any state in the US, with 26 total books available. They are: Bally Bet, Barstool, BetMGM, BetMonarch, BetRivers, Betway, BetWildwood, Circa Sports, DraftKings, Elite, FanDuel, FoxBet, MaximBet, PlayMaverick, PlayUp, SBK, Sky Ute, Sports Illustrated, SuperBook, Tipico, Betfred, Caesars, theScore, PointsBet, WynnBET.
Because of how many sportsbooks are legal in Colorado, they also made sure that they would offer fair pricing.
Colorado is easy. You can do everything necessary to get signed up all from your phone/computer. Some states require an in-person sign-up, but Colorado is not one of those states.
They also make signing up and depositing fairly simple as well. This is detailed in the next section, but for the sign-up process, the sportsbook will ask you a couple of personal questions to verify your identity. Then once you are signed up you can set up the payment method by syncing the app to your account.
Only two rules in Colorado.
