In November 2019, Colorado voters narrowly passed Proposition DD, which legalized sports gambling throughout the state.

In response, Century Casinos Inc. became partners with Circa Sports in February 2020 to begin offering online/mobile sports betting to Colorado customers. Circa and Century struck a 15-year agreement that included a share of net gambling profits, a market access fee and guaranteed earnings.

Century Casinos and Circa Sports can launch their online and mobile sports betting app whenever they obtain final approval from Colorado regulators. However, Century Casinos recently announced that its timeline for its mobile sports betting app remains uncertain because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Century Casinos holds two Colorado master licenses. While the gaming enterprise is actively negotiating with potential sportsbooks, Century has not yet announce its next business partner.

History of Century Casino & Hotel Central City

Century Casino started in the building formerly known as the Tollgate Casino in Central City. The building was renovated to nearly double its size, and Century Casinos Inc. and Tollgate Ventures jointly opened the new Century Casino & Hotel in 2006. The project led to Century Casino becoming one of the largest casinos in the gambling hub of Colorado.

At the time, Tollgate owned 35% of the property; however, Century Casino Inc. purchased Tollgate’s stake for around $3.3 million in December 2007.

The Central City Casino was voted Denver’s Best Casino 2012-2018 in the annual Cityvoter.com A-list contest.
