Colorado Starts Issuing Sportsbetting Licenses

Colorado's Limited Gaming Control Commission has announced that they've begun issuing sportsbetting licenses to operators, which will see the activity going live in the very near future.

The initial licenses will go to Monarch Casino and Saratoga Casino in Black Hawk, Dostal Alley Casino in Central City and Double Eagle Hotel & Casino, J.P. McGill's Hotel & Casino, Midnight Rose Hotel & Casino and Brass Ass Casino in Cripple Creek. These groups will all pay $125,000 now that they're approved, having already popped out a $10,000 application fee. Each spot will be granted a retail license as well as an online license, although there will only be one skin available.

There will be a Betfred skin, and Australian group Pointsbet will also have a presence.

No timetable for the first launches is available, but punters will likely be able to get in bets in time for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament next month, which is better known as March Madness.
