Measure to allow sports betting passes in Colorado: What’s next

Cripple Creek casinos sports betting

After a long wait, Proposition DD, which will allow casinos to have sports betting, has passed at the state level.

That means casinos in Colorado can start a physical sportsbook at their location, or create a mobile app for sports betting.

The state will then take 10% of that money and put it towards water projects across Colorado.

It came down to the wire.

The final results show votes 'for' the proposition totaled at around 50.8% and votes 'against' finished at nearly 49.2%.

State officials are expected to come out with regulations for the new law by May 2020.

Management at casinos in Cripple Creek tell us they hope to start sports betting in June 2020.

  1. Whoop de do… Only Baby Boomers have this type of disposable income to gamble. The rest of the populace is living paycheck to paycheck just to make ends meet. that is why this just barely passed. Just wait, as the Baby Boomer generation starts passing to their more permanent retirement, gambling will be hit even harder. Don’t believe me, go look to one of the gambling towns and aside from the personnel working at the casino, look at the age of the casino’s patrons.

  2. Create a mobile app for sports betting? I don’t think the state will alow that as that would go against the Gaming as in Colorado that say they can not extend credit to the patrons. So the only way they can run smething like that is the person may put so much money on a Casino’s account and use that. But credit cards are out. Even in the Casinos you will have to go to an ATM and withdraw cash and then buy you chips or Tokens. Granted I have seen some bingo parlors bend the rules by holding a check until the next week when the person comes and buys back their check with cash. by the letter of the law they are extending credit by doing that.
