Legal sports betting is booming in Colorado, and options abound for consumers as a result. There’s a new player on the scene that’s starting to make some noise, and its name just happens to fit like a glove.
SportsBetting.com made its debut in Colorado on Sept. 16, 2020. It is owned and operated by the Carousel Group, an internet gambling company that formed in 2017.
SportsBetting.com has big plans down the road for expansion in the U.S. For now, SportsBetting.com has gained entry to the Colorado market via a partnership with Johnny Nolon’s Casino in Cripple Creek.
As a sneak peek, there are a whole lot of markets available for betting, and you can access all of them online or via your mobile device. There’s also a fantastic sign-up offer that’s available exclusively to PlayColorado readers. Read on.
Legal sports betting in Colorado become official with the passage of Proposition DD in 2019. It took some time to get started officially, but Colorado sportsbooks began taking wagers on May 1, 2020.
In order to place bets, you must be 21 or older and be physically within the state. You also need to be playing with a legal and regulated operator.
SportsBetting.com checks those important boxes via a partnership with Johnny Nolon’s Casino.
SportsBetting.com is going all out with an exclusive offer for users who create a new account using our links will earn a deposit match bonus up to $500 in free bet credits!
Once your account is all set, make your deposit. You can deposit what you would like (the minimum is $10), but our exclusive bonus offer is for 20% up to $500 in wagers. All free bet credits need to be wagered within 7 days after being credited.
The deposit match bonus and free bets have a fantastic 1x play through requirement.
Unlike most sportsbook deposit bonuses you’ll find, this is not limited to your first deposit. The 20% match will apply to all your deposits until you’ve reached the maximum free bet credits of $500.

The welcome bonus is awesome, but the fun doesn’t stop there. SportsBetting.com also offers ongoing promotions, some of which are exclusively focused on Colorado teams.
There’s a dedicated promotions tab on SportsBetting.com, so the best advice is to check back often for what may be next. But here are some examples of the type of offers you can expect:
All these offers have terms & conditions of course, and as we mentioned SportsBettingg.com does a nice job of mixing them up over time. So be sure to check in regularly and see what’s available.
The registration process at SportsBetting.com is really simple. For starters, be sure to click on our links to gain access to the exclusive bonus offers. From there, you’ll be brought to a new page to create an account. Here’s what you’ll need to enter:
Next, you’ll have to check off a box that confirms the following:
That’s the entire process. From start to finish, you’re looking at a few minutes. Registration at SportsBetting.com is similar to what you’ll find at other online sportsbooks and sports betting apps, and you won’t need to jump through any unnecessary hoops.
SportsBetting.com has released the first version of the iOS app for iphone/iPad users. Android users for now just use the web browser on their device.
We tested it out for Android users, and we found we were able to navigate around on the smaller screen without issue. We’ll have to wait and see what the native app is like, but SportsBetting.com is fully optimized to work on mobile devices.
You have plenty of options for placing your bets in Colorado. That being the case, operators have to be at the top of their game to earn repeat business. Here are the top features that SportsBetting.com brings to the table.
The layout is pretty solid. We had a smooth experience while navigating around the site. There are clear-cut links to point you in the right direction, and the menus, funding and betting slip functions worked without any hitches.
You’ll find all of the major bet types available here. From standard wagers to more exotic offerings, SportsBetting.com has it. Let’s take a quick look at some of the most popular ways for you to get in the game.
On the main page, you’ll find the main sports betting lobby. The default listing is for upcoming and popular events, but you can change what you see with just a click on the menu of betting markets.
Default bet types — point spread, moneyline, and totals — will be front and center, while the “more wagers” option will open the door to additional opportunities. For futures, you can find dedicated links by clicking on the individual sports tabs.
You won’t be lacking for options at SportsBetting.com. There’s a whole host of markets to choose from, ranging from the major sports all the way down to niche items. Let’s begin by taking a look at the most popular sports on the menu.
As mentioned earlier, SportsBetting.com really goes all out when it comes to niche sports. Here are the other options you can check out on the main wagering menu.
Colorado has already proven to be a fantastic market for sports betting, and the growth shows no sign of abating. Betting on sports with a chance to win some extra coin is a huge draw, but it’s safe to say that there’s another reason for the surging interest.
The fact that Colorado is a hotbed for sporting action certainly doesn’t hurt. For each of the major leagues, there’s a local team to root for.
For each of the above teams, you can get in the game like never before now that sports betting is legal here at home. You can bet on the outcome of games, wager on props, live bet as the action plays out or take a shot in the futures market.
Please note that props are not available for wagering on college sports in Colorado. Outside of that, you have scores of options to consider for the local teams.
SportsBetting.com had some intriguing promos up based on the locals during our deep dive, and we’ll certainly be interested to see what the future holds on that front.
Interest in the sports betting futures market continues to grow. These are wagers that afford you the chance to take a long-term view on an entire season. It’s a great research tool, as well, as the odds board gives you an instant peek at how teams really stack up.
For the major team-based sports, you’ll have several options to consider, including:
Futures aren’t solely reserved for the team sports. You’ll find popular markets for the major individual sports, such as:
You can place your bets on all of the above and much more at SportsBetting.com. A well-timed futures bet can lead to great returns, and you get to stay further engaged with sports all year round. What’s not to love?
There aren’t a whole host of funding options available at the present time, but we’ll see if there will be more to come in the future. Here are the options for depositing at SportsBetting.com.
Withdrawals are typically credited back to the account that you used to deposit, but you can always contact customer service if you have any special requests.
There are three primary ways to get assistance as things come up, and there’s also a dedicated help section for FAQs.
The chat support function is awesome and should be your go-to method as things arise. During our test, we were chatting with a real person in about a minute. Dedicated telephone support would be a great add, but the live chat option works just fine, too.
Right at the bottom of the main web page is a clickable link for responsible gambling. The company has posted what it refers to as “Our commitment,” which reads as follows:
Here at SportsBetting.com, we take care of our players. With this in mind, our main commitments are responsible gaming and providing the best possible customer service to our players.
Therefore, our site has different options that lead to the greatest fun of our player, giving you the control of both the time and money you spend gambling.
There are also dedicated links in that section where you can set deposit or wager limits, take a break, or self-exclude as needed. SportsBetting.com also has several helpful articles posted and numbers to get help, so responsible gambling is clearly a priority.
The Carousel Group gained entry to the Colorado market via a deal with Johnny Nolon’s Casino, which is located in Cripple Creek. The location already has a self-branded sportsbook on site that is powered by Las Vegas-based ISI Race & Sports.
This is the first state in which SportsBetting.com has been made available, but the company has designs on entering more in the near future. It’s unclear if the future plans also call for retail locations.
As it is a new entry into the Colorado sports betting market, it’ll take some time until we can fairly assess SportsBetting.com in relation to the competition. That said, we can say that early returns are quite promising.
There’s a wide range of betting markets and wagering options. Navigation is smooth, and the overall layout is clean and visually appealing. SportsBetting.com offers a decent amount of funding options, and it doesn’t look like it’ll be shy with promos. And the SportsBetting.com welcome bonus is exciting.
With the app now live, it’s a great start for the new kid on the Colorado sports betting scene.
