Sports betting is now legal in Colorado and that adds another state to the list that have passed bills to legalize sports betting. There might not be any major American sports in action right now but that didn’t stop the bill from passing and it went into effect at 10 a.m. local time on May 1, 2020. Here are the steps that you can take to get started betting on sports in Colorado whether you live there or are traveling there.
Pick a Sportsbook
These are all great offers to take advantage of if you are signing up with these sports books in Colorado. It’s smart to take advantage of all three offers and use multiple sports books so you can shop for the best betting odds and betting lines.
Those are the major sports books that are up and running for mobile betting in Colorado. Brick and mortar casinos can also partner with online operators so there will be even more options for bettors in the near future.
Sign Up Information
Each site generally requires the same information to get signed up:
Date of Birth
Like we discussed in our online sportsbook review article, these major sportsbooks do not offer credit like some local bookies do so you will need to deposit money up front before you can bet on any sports. There are multiple deposit options for each sportsbook so use whichever options fits you best. I personally enjoy the Paypal deposit feature for Fanduel Sportsbook.
Place your bet
Once you deposit money into your account, you are ready to place your bets. There are still some betting options during the Corona virus pandemic including the Chinese Professional Baseball League, table tennis, video game simulations, and international soccer. You could get started on those or you could just wait for the major American sports to return. Either way, it’s good to see another state adding legal sports betting. The growth of the industry continues!
