Lady Luck Casino sports betting

As of May 1, legalized sports betting has officially gone live in the state of Colorado.

Movers and shakers in the casino industry are moving quickly to take advantage of an expanded market, as Colorado’s gaming industry is looking to revive their customer base by offering new and exciting sportsbook products to Colorado gamblers.

As sports betting has become legal in the state, Eldorado Resorts has struck a deal with a well-regarded UK bookmaker, William Hill. Once it became apparent that Colorado was taking steps to legalize sports gambling on the state level, Eldorado Resorts and William Hill agreed to move forward with a 25-year sports wagering agreement.

The agreement between William Hill and Eldorado Resorts includes retail sportsbook locations at both Eldorado casinos in Black Hawk. William Hill will also offer a high-end mobile sportsbook app to gamers so that bets can be placed anywhere in the state by anyone of legal gambling age.

In July 2020, both Lady Luck and Isle debuted six William Hill betting kiosks on the casino floor. There is no retail sportsbook counter with tellers, but the kiosks are easy to navigate and display all the betting options to customers.

Table games

While Colorado’s Gaming Commission retains restrictions on what casinos are allowed to offer with respect to table gaming, Lady Luck Casino keeps things interesting by offering gaming promotions, poker-based games, and fun renditions on its current table games. This is particularly true as Lady Luck features games like Craps with 10X odds and Buffalo Blackjack 3, where gamblers can enjoy playing traditional blackjack with the option to place two additional bets.
