Who we are

PlayColorado is part of the Catena Media network. Catena Media owns and operates dozens of sites across the US, all of which cover the legal gambling industry in every state in the country. Every gambling site that we discuss is a legal and regulated entity in its respective state. In other words, at PlayColorado, we will never name nor review any gambling outlet that is anything short of a fully licensed company in the State of Colorado.

According to state law, a Vendor Major License is required for any person and/or entity who acts on behalf of an establishment licensed to operate sports betting and also provides products, services, information, or assets to an establishment licensed to operate sports betting gaming and/or receives, therefore, a percentage of gaming revenue from the establishment’s sports betting gaming system.

PlayColorado is an affiliate news site. While you may find advertisements for legal CO gambling sites, the companies behind the ads do not have a say in our editorial content. Each of these advertisements is the result of our affiliate partnerships with these companies. We do not accept paid advertising offers of any kind.

How we work

We understand that there are many different choices when it comes to information on the internet; especially in Colorado with legal online sports betting. Not everything you read is trustworthy. Which is why we go through several different steps and procedures to ensure that you can trust what you read on PlayColorado.

First of all, we get our information from as close to the source as we can. If we discuss the law, we cite the text of the law as published by the state government. If we discuss bills in the State Legislature, we speak to their authors. Any statistics you see are usually drawn directly from the Division of Gaming reports. PlayColorado does not report on gossip or secondhand information — period.
