FanDuel Colorado

The Centennial State voted the legalization of the sports betting bill in November 2019 allowing the inaugural online Colorado sportsbooks by May 2020. FanDuel Colorado was among the first sports betting operators to react. They launched the website and the mobile app on May 1st, 2020.

FanDuel Colorado had teamed up with Twin River Worldwide Holdings in January 2020. The agreement was made shortly after the company acquired three land-based casinos at Black Hawks:

  • Golden Gulch Casino
  • Golden Mardi Gras Casino
  • Golden Gates Casino

FanDuel Colorado Welcome Bonus

FanDuel are an already-proven site thanks to enormous successes with their Daily Fantasy Sports section. They clearly know what to do to keep the customers happy. A lucrative set of promotions is a great tool, especially when you are making a new step to expand the business line in a new and opportunistic market. 

FanDuel Colorado draw the public with an appealing welcome promotion in the shape of a:

  • Up to $1,000 Risk-Free Bet

While this is not a standard first deposit bonus, it can still be a significant boost to your initial sports betting ambitions. You will practically have a chance to get started by betting as much as $1,000 (the amount can be lower of course, but $1k brings higher winnings potentially) without any risk involved. If your inaugural bet wins, well done, you’re off to a fantastic start. If it doesn’t, FanDuel Colorado will give you a second chance by refunding your stake.

Wagering Requirements

A risk-free bet is easy to explain either way, but we feel the best would be through an example:

You’ve placed a $500 bet on Tampa Bay Buccaneers to beat New England Patriots

  • The bet lets you down as the Pats see off the Bucs
  • FanDuel Colorado will then refund your $500 in the shape of site credits
  • You can’t withdraw these credits
  • You will then make a bet by using these credits (on any market you’d like, no restrictions whatsoever)
  • Potential winnings are all yours to keep
  • No other wagering requirements are involved

Promo Codes

You are not obliged to use any promo code to take advantage of the aforementioned welcome promotion. Creating an account, depositing, and placing the first bet will do the job.

How to Get FanDuel Colorado Bonus
