Colorado Casino Guide
Online Casinos in Colorado
Although Colorado has a long tradition with some great landbased casinos, it has not legalized online casinos. There appears to be little motion toward legalization at this point.
Colorado does have a state lottery, which can indicate an openness to other forms of betting.
The nearest state to Colorado with online casinos happens to be Nevada. Nevada offers some great poker through the World Series of Poker (WSOP) website and downloadable app.
But, you can still register with a legal online casino while you're in Colorado. That means you can get the casino's bonus offers or deposit, and then play whenever you're in states where it's legal. (Do be aware of the casino bonus's expiry date, though.)

Gambling Laws in Colorado
When Colorado casinos were initially introduced in 1991 the options were limited. Only electronic games (including slots, video poker, video blackjack, and video keno) and the table games of poker, blackjack, let it ride and three-card poker was allowed. Plus, a single wager could not exceed $5.
All that changed, however, on July 2, 2009, when the maximum bet at all Colorado casinos was raised to $100, plus the games of craps and roulette were added to the mix. Additionally, the casinos in Colorado were allowed to stay open for 24 hours, rather than having to be closed between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m.
The payback percentages on electronic gaming machines at all casinos in Colorado are released as a matter of public record. Just click here to see a list of slot machine payback statistics for all Colorado casinos.
The minimum gambling age at all Colorado casinos is 21, including Indian casinos.
