A ballot passed last November means that as of 1st May 2020, sports gambling is legal in Colorado. Wildwood Casino has secured a deal with ISI Race & Sports to operate both their retail and internet sportsbook. The CEO of AGG said, “We are able to combine our extensive knowledge of the local Colorado market with ISI’s 20 years offering sports betting services and the Amelco betting platform and native mobile apps to create a winning experience for our customers.” Therefore, we know the Amelco app will be launching in Colorado shortly. Regarding retail sportsbooks, Wildwood Casino has yet to roll out their services, but we should see this also go live in the coming months.

In Colorado, all forms of online casino gambling inclusive of slots, table games, and poker for real money are illegal. Therefore, none of these games are playable through Wildwood’s online site. On the other hand, online sports betting is legal and ISI Race & Sports will be bringing an internet sportsbook to Colorado through its collaboration with Wildwood Casino. However, nothing has been launched to date. For now, take a look at the mobile apps currently live in Colorado to place wagers on to go!
