Key CO sports betting figures

Compared to other states, Colorado does not offer up the same breadth of data other states offer. For example, it does not divulge how each operator is performing. Nor does the state revenue reports denote what bets were placed online and which were placed at a brick-and-mortar sportsbook.

Nonetheless, there are some big numbers they do provide. Here is a look at the lifetime totals of those figures as well as what each month produced in each category:

GGR = Gross gaming revenue
NSBP = Net sports betting product, often referred to as “taxable revenue”
