Colorado Provides Fertile Ground for Sports Betting Operators

Colorado opened its doors for legal sports betting on May 1 of this year. Despite a severely limited menu of sporting events on offer due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the handle for the first month reached an impressive $25.5m.

DraftKings was among the first online sportsbooks to launch in Colorado in May, along with FanDuel, BetMGM and BetRivers. Since then, several more online sportsbooks have opened in the state as well as two retail sportsbooks.

DraftKings are currently offering new online customers up to $1,000 as a sign-up bonus. If you aren’t signed up, claim your bonus here right now.
