As of 1st May 2020, sports gambling is legal in Colorado. This allows anyone inside the state to place wagers on sporting events, at either retail or online sportsbooks, despite the currently limited sports schedule. The Midnight Rose Hotel & Casino has had its sports betting license approved and so will likely roll out its onsite sportsbook in the near future. At present, they do not offer sports betting services at their retail property.
The Midnight Rose Hotel & Casino has also partnered with ROAR Digital who are operating the casino’s online sportsbook under the BetMGM site. BetMGM was one of the first sportsbooks to launch in Colorado, making its debut on 1st May 2020 along with FanDuel Sportsbook, DraftKings Sportsbook, and BetRivers. The site covers a range of wagers and events, though the coverage will grow as more sporting events are rescheduled. There is also a mobile app so all your bets can be placed on the go and a welcome bonus of up to $500. Take a look at our BetMGM review for more information.
