Super Bowl LVII will have all of Colorado looking for a great place to watch and place a bet between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.
Colorado residents are partial to the Denver Broncos, so they will likely be rooting — and betting for — the Eagles to take down one of the Broncos’ hated rivals.
Colorado sports betting has grown into a huge industry since it launched in May 2020. In December, sports fans gambled over $518 million at one of the licensed and regulated Colorado sportsbooks. And Colorado became the seventh state of all time to pass $10 billion in total sports betting handle.
Colorado only allows retail betting in Central City, Black Hawk, and approved Native American grounds. There are plenty of options for football fans to gather and gamble on the 2023 Super Bowl. Here are five of the best.
No. 1: DraftKings Sportsbook at Bally’s BlackHawk North
Address: 300 Main Street, Black Hawk
Why It’s Super: A massive amount of televisions (32) to see every play and every angle of Super Bowl 57, plus 11 65-inch screens that post live DraftKings odds. Don’t forget, even after the game starts you can still bet on the outcome through live betting.
This sportsbook has kiosks, a full-service sportsbook cashier, and a full-service bar to toast your victories. It’s open until 2 a.m.
No. 2: BetFred Saratoga Casino
Address: 101 Main Street, Black Hawk
Why It’s Super: The sportsbook space is huge, 1,400 square feet for you and your whole team of friends to see all the action. The chairs are plush, the drinks are served cold with televisions all around.
BetFred has multiple betting windows and self-service kiosks if the lines get too long. The minimum bet is $5 at the window and $2 at the kiosk, meaning you can have some fun on a prop bet or two.
No. 3: BetRivers at McGill Casino
Address: 232 Bennett Avenue, Cripple Creek
Why It’s Super: The food is supplied by the Pint and Platter pub which is the only place in Cripple Creek that has Guinness on tap. BetRivers has a full menu of bets on the Super Bowl but also prides itself on its variety of offerings.
No. 4: Barstool Ameristar Black Hawk
Address: 111 Richman Street
Why It’s Super: Located on the second level of the casino, this sportsbook restaurant has a 24-foot video wall and 29 different televisions to tune in. You also earn player rewards for each bet you make.
The menu has standard bar food, but also “over & under brownies” for dessert, sticking with the gambling theme. There are contests where you can win football-themed prizes. There are also Colorado sports betting kiosks available in nearby Bar 8042 if this place gets too crowded.
No. 5: Home
Address: Your Place
Why It’s Super: If you’re not inclined to go out to watch the Super Bowl, you can always download one of the online apps from Caesars, FanDuel, or PointsBet in Colorado and start your sports betting journey there.
Most sportsbooks are offering huge welcome bonuses for signing up, meaning that even if you lose your first bet, you get your money back. Also, when you’re at your place for the Super Bowl, you can eat all the guacamole you want and no one has to notice.
