Legal Colorado Sportsbooks: Rules And Regulations

Overseeing Colorado’s legal sports betting market are the Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission and the Colorado Division of Gaming, which are part of the state’s Department of Revenue. The body meets monthly to discuss licensure and regulations related to Colorado gambling, usually on the third Thursday of the month.

Proposition DD, which legalized sports betting in Colorado by ballot, authorized sports betting in the state and created a new 10% tax on the proceeds on the operators of online or retail sportsbooks. The passed legislation directs funds collected from the tax to create the state’s Water Plan Implementation Cash Fund.

The maximum casino bet allowed in Colorado is $100, thanks to a voter initiative in 2008 that raised the state’s limit from $5 max per wager, a holdover from 1990 when voters first approved gambling in Colorado. Sports betting is not subject to the same limit.

There are attempts being made in the state to pass Initiative #257, which would raise Colorado’s bet limit to any amount
