Colorado May Adopt Internet Gambling

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

An interview in CardPlayer Magazine shows that the Colorado Gaming Association has plans to introduce a bill in the state's legislature next year that would legalize online gambling in the Centennial State.

CGA Executive Director Lois Rice said that her organization has already drafted a bill regarding legalizing internet poker within the state, but that other projects have delayed it being introduced to lawmakers within Colorado.

Rice indicated that the CGA's bill draft resembles what has been introduced in New Jersey and that the bill will likely be introduced next year. Currently Colorado has 40 land casinos within its borders which generate $750 million each year.

Colorado House Speak Frank McNulty said he was unaware of any draft bill by the CGA when asked by CardPlayer.
