Voters in Colorado Okayed sports betting in 2019, and now Casinos are ready to get the ball rolling. Although the state may have missed out on the Super Bowl LIV event, and is also likely to miss out on NCAA’s March madness too, the consolation is that something good might happen before the start of NFL season. Casinos in the state are eagerly awaiting the next 88 days to whiz by. They have already started to get their sportsbooks in order, in readiness for the big day.
The sports gambling space will go live on the 1st of May. FanDuel and DraftKings are ready to take bets, and this was made possible through their partnership with Twin River Worldwide Holdings. In the meantime, Ameristar is working to put the final touches in place on its sportsbook.
The GM and VP at Ameristar, based in Black Hawk, Sean Demuele, stated that they are happy voters in the state okayed sports betting in November of 2019. He added that they are working to get thing ready, and they will kick off with a sportsbook in their premises.
Central City, Black Hawk as well as Cripple Creek will share out the 33 sports gambling licenses. Colorado’s division of Gambling is currently reviewing application, and will eventually determine the winners.
Based on data received from the department of gambling in Colorado, there has been plenty of interest. So far, there are close to 51 applicants, and because only 33 are available, some people will have to be disappointed. But, it does not imply that those miss to get one this time will not get another opportunity in future.
That said, there is plenty of fine tuning to be done before this activity launches this coming May. A fraction of this was done this past Friday. However, more is on the way. Additionally, there is some contrasting language in the present draft that needs to be removed, and some controversial rules will face the axe before wagered are accepted.
