DraftKings set for Colorado sportsbook launch with Twin River

27 January 2020

Sports betting and daily fantasy sports operator DraftKings is to launch a retail and digital sportsbook in Colorado via a new partnership with casino operator Twin River Worldwide.

Under the agreement, DraftKings will open a new retail sportsbook at the Twin River Mardi Gras Casino in Black Hawk, Colorado, and also roll out its online and mobile sportsbooks in the state.

Twin River only finalised the acquisition of the Mardi Gras casino last week, with the operator also purchasing the Golden Gates and Golden Gulch in Black Rock, Colorado.

Though still subject to regulatory and licensure approvals, should the launch go ahead, Colorado would become the sixth state in which DraftKings offers online and mobile sports betting, following New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Indiana and West Virginia.
