Ute Mountain Casino Sportsbook

Online gambling is not allowed in Colorado, however beginning May 1, 2020, sports betting, both in casinos and online will be legal.

The Ute Mountain Ute Tribe announced it does plan to open a sportsbook at its casino, though exact plans have not been made public as of yet.

As a tribal casino, neither Ute Mountain nor Colorado s other tribal casino, Sky Ute Casino, need to apply for a sports betting license. The two casinos are simply allowed to operate any game of chance that is legal at the state-regulated level.

Ute Mountain Casino announced it plans to open a sportsbook, but has not gone into detail about whether it will be retail only or online as well.

Tribal casinos have begun offering sports betting in the past couple of years. The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians were the first Tribal casino outside Nevada to open a sportsbook at the end of August 2018. Later that same year, Santa Ana Star Casino and Hotel in Bernalillo, NM, which is run by the Tamaya Nation at Pueblo of Santa Ana, added sports betting.

Here is a look at a few of the other Tribal casinos that opened in 2019:

  • The Book: The Pueblo of Laguna and Laguna Development Corporation opened a full-service sportsbook at its Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque at a cost of $3.4 million.
  • Sportsbook at the Inn: The Mescalero Apache Tribe opened this sportsbook as part of its Mountain Gods Resort Casino in New Mexico. Betting and gaming company William Hill was chosen to run the sportsbook, marking William Hill s first Tribal agreement outside of Nevada.

Ute Mountain Casino plans sports book by May 1

January 20, 2020

Tribal leaders of the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe are planning to add sports betting to the Ute Mountain Casino located in Towaoc, Colorado in the southwest corner of the state.

Plans are underway now to design and build a special area dedicated to sports betting. The target date for opening the new venue is May 1, 2020. Tribal leaders are seeking to partner with a sportsbook operator with the hardware and software needed for the casino. The partner will require approval by the National Indian Gaming Commission.

There has been no announcement regarding similar plans for a sports book from Sky Ute Casino in Ignacio, Colorado.
