Rocky Mountain High Bets: A History of Sports Betting in Colorado (2014-2024)

Colorado’s foray into the world of sports betting has been nothing short of breathtaking. From underground operations to full-fledged legalization, the state has undergone a dramatic shift in just the past decade. With an emphasis on the recent years, let’s dive into this dynamic history:

2014: Seeds of Change Sown: While not the first instance, House Bill 1327 sparked discussions around legalizing retail sports betting within licensed casinos. However, concerns about potential social and economic impacts led to its defeat. Still, the groundwork for future developments was laid.

2018: Referendum Revolution: Following the Supreme Court’s landmark decision invalidating the federal sports betting ban, Colorado seized the opportunity. Proposition DD, a citizen-led ballot initiative, proposed legalizing retail and online sports betting with tax revenue directed towards water conservation projects. In November 2018, voters overwhelmingly approved the measure, paving the way for a monumental change.

2019: Regulatory Rush: With legislative and constitutional backing, the focus shifted to establishing a regulatory framework. The Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission (CGLCC) and Division of Gaming worked diligently to create licensing procedures, responsible gambling measures, and consumer protection protocols. By year’s end, the path for launch was clear.

2020: May the Wagers Begin: May 1st, 2020, marked a historic day as Colorado officially launched its legal sports betting market. Initially, retail sportsbooks at licensed casinos dominated the scene, offering bets on major professional leagues and sporting events. The first online platforms quickly followed suit, expanding accessibility and fueling rapid growth.

2021: Mobile Mania Takes Hold: Recognizing the massive potential of mobile wagering, Colorado legislators passed House Bill 1327, legalizing online sports betting statewide. This decision ignited a surge in market participation, with major operators like DraftKings, FanDuel, and BetMGM entering the scene. Mobile wagers quickly surpassed retail bets, solidifying their dominance.

Present Day: A Booming Industry: Colorado’s sports betting market continues to experience tremendous growth. The handle (total amount wagered) reached record highs in 2023, exceeding $5 billion. Tax revenue generated has benefited water conservation projects across the state. Additionally, partnerships between professional sports teams and sportsbooks, like the Denver Broncos’ deal with FanDuel, have further cemented the industry’s presence.

Looking Ahead: While the initial boom has settled, Colorado is not resting on its laurels. Discussions surrounding expanding betting options, such as in-play wagers and collegiate sports (excluding in-state teams), are ongoing. Responsible gambling initiatives remain a priority, with efforts to enhance user education and support resources on the rise.

Conclusion: Colorado’s journey with sports betting has been remarkable. From initial skepticism to a thriving, regulated market, the state has embraced innovation while emphasizing responsible practices. As the industry matures and technology evolves, we can expect Colorado to continue playing a leading role in shaping the future of legal sports betting.
