The Colorado sports betting market has gone ELITE.
ELITE Sportsbook is now live for Colorado sports bettors. As of now, online betting is available for prospective users, though an app will also be available (just not yet).
ELITE Sportsbook has a market deal with Red Dolly Casino in Black Hawk. For those who may want to place bets in person, betting kiosks are expected to be up and running at the Red Dolly Casino “soon.”
Customers are now free to make deposits online. They can set up their account at the website or the Red Dolly Casino website.
This now brings the total to 11 for Colorado sports betting apps and online sportsbooks. There are also five retail sportsbooks up and running at various casinos in Colorado in the gaming towns of Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek.
ELITE Sportsbook promotions
As Dan Kehl, Elite Casino Resorts CEO, said in a press release:
“ELITE Sportsbook will have one of the strongest offerings in the Colorado market. Our Progressive Parlay is exclusive and not available with any other Colorado sportsbook. Exclusive options like this and the most user friendly platform available make ELITE Sportsbook the best choice for Colorado sports bettors.”
In the Progressive Parlay, bettors who wager at least a four leg parlay on football or basketball point spreads can lose one leg and still win.
One of the other ways ELITE Sportsbook is looking to attract Colorado users is through sports betting bonuses.
Through Aug. 31, 2020, ELITE Sportsbook is offering up to $1,000 in free bets through a 50% deposit match and risk-free first bet promotion.
Here’s how it works, according to the release.
Once signed up, make your first deposit and the Colorado sportsbook will award a 50% deposit match up to $500 in the form of a free bet. The release adds that when you make your first bet, and if that bet is graded as a loss, ELITE Sportsbook will reimburse you up to $500 in the form of a free bet.
ELITE Sportsbook offerings
Craig Ramirez, general manager at Red Dolly Casino, said in the release:
“I am very excited about Red Dolly’s partnership with ELITE Sportsbook and Elite Casino Resorts. The Red Dolly and ELITE Sportsbook share the same customer focused vision for casino operations. Teaming up with ELITE Sportsbook will allow the Red Dolly Casino to offer sports betting kiosks in the casino as well as online sports betting to our current and new customers alike. We are looking forward to a long successful partnership.”
An interesting note about Red Dolly Casino — it’s the oldest casino in Black Hawk. The release notes it’s been in business since 1992.
As is the case with the Colorado sports betting market, Red Dolly Casino has now gone ELITE.
