Fox Bet Colorado has launched online with an attractive offering for Denver Broncos fans. One former Broncos player, FOX commentator Shannon Sharpe, is touting the platform.
Although a $10 bonus for every Broncos win during the coming season is sure to draw attention, Fox Bet has much more to offer Coloradans. The launch means bettors have one more option for legal sports betting in Colorado.
Fox Bet Colorado now live online
As of Tuesday, May 19, CO residents and visitors can place wagers on Fox Bet’s mobile apps and website. This makes three states for Fox Bet, as it already operates in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Like these other states, the Fox Bet Colorado app is available on desktop. Additionally, iOS users can download the Fox Bet Colorado app for iPhone and iPads from the Apple Store. If you are an Android user, the Google Play store does not list apps in the store, but the download is available directly from the Fox Bet site.
If you have the Fox Bet app from Pennsylvania or New Jersey, be advised you will need to download the Colorado-specific version of the app.
Sharpe and Fox Bet appealing to Denver Broncos fans
Sharpe went on record to express his optimism about the brand’s presence in the state on Tuesday.
“Bronco Country and Colorado sports fans hold a special place in my heart and mind. Now that FOX Bet is at your fingertips in Colorado, we are primed to make a big splash and enhance the sports viewing experience.”
If Sharpe visits CO before the start of the 2020-21 NFL season, he will be able to take part in a special Broncos bonus wager. Fox Bet is offering a $10 bonus for every Denver win to those who bet on the Broncos finishing the regular season with a winning record.
While that may entice some bettors, Fox Bet has another offer that should appeal very widely in CO. Fox Bet is offering a $500 deposit match and a $500 risk-free first bet to new customers.
If you’re at least 21 years of age and physically located within the state’s borders, you can take advantage of these offers. The addition of Fox Bet to the market is a win for bettors in another way, however.
Colorado’s sports wagering market could be robust
Provided that major North American sports leagues resume/start play soon, right now is a good time to get an online betting app on the new Colorado market. Demand and opportunity could both be present.
Several operators have shared that the first two weeks of May have seen great interest in wagering on sporting events. Among them is FanDuel, which is already live in CO.
FanDuel said betting on the Taylormade Driving Relief 2020 represented twice the handle it normally sees during a PGA event. If Colorado Rockies games should return, for example, this level of interest could spike further.
There are still no details about how or when MLB will begin its 2020 season. There is good news on this front, however. CO Gov. Jared Polis has given the green light to games in the state without spectators physically attending.
Whether or not that means MLB games at Coors Field this summer remains a fluid situation. Regardless, approval from the state is a crucial step toward that possibility.
For bettors, the addition of one more operator in the betting marketplace is a good sign as well. The presence of several operators works to ensure a competitive marketplace. That, in turn, means competitive odds and frequent promotions.
Hopefully, fans will be able to watch the Broncos and Rockies play this year, even if just on TV. If those games do take place, Fox Bet now provides another way to bet on them in CO.
