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 US. 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 via our links. You can get up to $1,000 in risk-free bets for your first week of playing onsite. Here’s how it works.
Once your account is all set, make your first deposit. You can deposit what you would like, but our exclusive bonus offer is for up to $1,000 in wagers. Start placing your bets and continue to do so throughout the week.
After your first week of betting is done, the sportsbook will tally up your results. If your losses are greater than what you’ve won, then SportsBetting.com will give you back the difference in site credits up to the amount of the offer.
For a quick example, let’s say that you win $400 during the week, but lose a total of $500. You’ll get the difference of $100 credited back to your account. This is a fantastic way to try out this new offering with a little insurance for doing so.

SportsBetting.com is offering a Risk-Free First Deposit Bonus that will reimburse you if you lose for up to a week, up to $1,000! That’s right if you opt in to this promo, you can lose up to a GRAND and you will get reimbursed to try it all again. Of course, if you win, you win but even if you lose, you still win, via a risk-free bet. Plus, this promotion is happening for a whole week after you make your first deposit, so make sure you cash in on this unique opportunity!
The risk-free betting promo is awesome, but the fun doesn’t stop there. SportsBetting.com also offers ongoing promotions, some of which are exclusively focused on Colorado teams.
At the time of this writing, there’s a Mile High MVP bonus available for an upcoming Denver Nuggets game. If your bet is a loser, you can earn up to $100 back if any player records a triple-double in the contest.
There’s a similar promo going on for an upcoming NFL game. If you place a “first touchdown scorer” bet that goes wrong, you’ll get back up to $100 as long as the player scores a TD at some other point in the game.
There’s a dedicated promotions tab on SportsBetting.com, so the best advice is to check back often for what may be next. We’ll patiently wait and see if the menu is expanded to include other standard sportsbook promos such as odds boosts or bet insurance.
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 offer. 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.
At the moment, SportsBetting.com is still working on its mobile offering, but plans call for both an iOS and Android app in the future. In the meantime, you can access the main site via your mobile device.
We tested it out, and we were able to navigate around on the smaller screen without issue. We’ll have to wait and see what the 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 CO. 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 risk free first week up to $1,000 is industry-leading.
The lack of an app out of the gate is a small downer, but it’s in the works. For now, the site works fine on mobile, and live chat is on standby if anything comes up. All told, it’s a great start for the new kid on the CO sports betting scene.
