Is Betfred Sports legal in Colorado?

Legal sports betting in Colorado started on May 1, 2020. This was the final step in a process that saw the federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act overturned (in 2018), Bill 1327 signed in Colorado (May 2019) and a statewide referendum passed (November 2019).

To legally accept bets in Colorado, Betfred Sports has partnered with Saratoga Casino in Black Hawk. Each of the 33 Colorado casinos can apply for a “master license.” This covers the venue for a retail sportsbook and online one.

To gamble in Colorado, you have to be at least 21 years of age and be physically present within state lines. With online betting taking place via apps on mobile devices, geolocation software plays a key role. If a Colorado resident steps outside the state, that resident won’t be able to place a bet.

There is no legal requirement to be a permanent resident of Colorado to place a bet. Visitors to the state can wager as long as they are inside state lines.

Welcome bonuses at Betfred Sports in Colorado

Betfred Sports has proven to be unique in its offerings, as it caters bonuses and promotions toward the specific state it is opening in, instead of having a universal promotion. And that’s great news for us in the Centennial State, because in Colorado your risk-free first bet maxes out at a whopping $500.

Here are the steps required to take advantage of this offer:

  • Register a new account with Betfred
  • Enter the Betfred Sportsbook Colorado promo code BETBONUS
  • Make a deposit of at least $10
  • Place a bet with odds of -200 or longer
  • If the bet wins, you’ll see your winnings in your account immediately
  • If it loses you’ll see a free bet land in your account within three days of the wager settling.

The bet can be for any amount between $10 and the maximum of $500, but the offer only applies to your first bet on the site. So consider the amount carefully!

Betfred Sports special promotions

By their nature, promotions and special deals will change with the major leagues that are in season. Those listed below are an example of what you can expect from Betfred Sports as the different sports seasons progress:

  • Enhanced parlays — Betfred Sports will occasionally offer “recommended” parlays, which give the odds a boost. These can be across a variety of sports and will see a higher payout awarded than if you had placed a standard parlay.
  • Parlay insurance — Place a parlay of five or more selections, and if one of the legs lets you down, you’ll receive up to $10 back as a free bet.
  • Double delight — In soccer, if you place a “first goal scorer” wager that wins, and then the player goes on to score again, Betfred Sports will double the odds.

With the introduction of Betfred Sports into the US sports marketplace, you can expect offers and promotions on the biggest leagues, such as the NFL, the NBA and Major League Baseball.

There is also a loyalty scheme available at Betfred Sports, where you’ll earn more points the more you bet. You’ll have the chance to move through Premium, Platinum and Black levels, with a variety of awards, including the following:

  • Dedicated account manager
  • Enhanced offers
  • Points bonus
  • Exclusive prize draws
  • Shopping and restaurant vouchers
  • Weekly cashback
  • Birthday bonus
  • Christmas hamper
  • Experience days
  • Hospitality and exclusive event invites
  • Anniversary loyalty bonus
  • Bespoke/personalized promotions

Types of sports bets available at Betfred Sports CO

When placing a bet at Betfred Sports, you have the option of three different odds types — American is the default option, while both fractional and decimal odds are available.

On every betting event, you’ll find the following three markets listed by default:

  • Point spread — The spread, or “point spread,” is a wager where the underdog will have points added to make it an even money contest. In most cases, both selections will feature odds of -110.
  • Money line — The most straightforward bet of all, where you’ll simply be selecting which of the two teams will win the game.
  • Totals — Also known as over/under betting. Betfred Sports will set a line based on the total number of points in a game, and you’ll bet on whether it will be under or over that total. Once again, odds on both sides of this market will usually be -110.

The above three markets will be listed on all of the biggest events in sports, such as football, basketball, baseball, hockey and the best in college sports. Click on the “more markets” to find other betting options. Here are other markets you can find on individual events:

  • Proposition bets — Otherwise known as “props,” these are bets based on events within a game. For example, you could place a bet on which team is winning a baseball game after five innings. Or whether the Denver Broncos will be the first team to score a touchdown.
  • Live betting — Live or in-play betting is becoming increasingly popular at mobile sportsbooks. This gives you a chance to get involved while watching the game, but keep an eye on the fast-moving betting odds. Sports with natural breaks in play such as football, baseball, and tennis are perfect for live betting.

As well as these bets on individual games, there are also three types of bets you can place with more than one selection:

  • Parlay — A parlay is a bet with two or more selections, where each pick has to win. The more selections you pick, the higher the potential payout will be. Some of the biggest wins in betting come via parlays.
  • Teaser — This is a form of parlay, where the line is moved slightly in your favor (applies to point spread and totals bets). With the line moved, each selection is more likely to win, although the overall odds will be slightly reduced.
  • Round Robin — A round robin bet is one where you can place a series of parlays in combinations. For example, you could make three selections, and within that, have three two-team parlays and a single three-team parlay. If just two selections win, you’ll still enjoy a payout, while if all three teams win, you’ll enjoy a nice payout, as all parlays will win.

The final betting option you can enjoy is based on long term predictions:

  • Futures – These are wagers usually based on an entire season, or a wager a long time ahead of an event. Good examples are a wager on the World Series winner before the season begins in March, or the winner of the US Open in golf a few months before they tee off.

Range of sports covered at Betfred Sports in Colorado

As is the case with any sportsbook in Colorado, the NFL season is the busiest time of the year. You’ll find a long list of props and additional markets alongside the point spread, totals and money line odds.

Look out for additional (often entertaining) props around the Super Bowl.

Betfred Sports takes a similar approach to baseball, basketball and hockey, and the best in college hoops and football. Look out for extensive markets on all regular season games, extended markets when the playoffs for each sport come around, plus a full range of futures.
