Legal changes make Colorado an enticing casino market for Nevada operators

Nevada's major gaming companies avoided Colorado for nearly two decades. The state's casinos were legalized in the historic mining towns of Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek. Las Vegas and Reno's gaming firms invested millions to change the perception of the Colorado casino communities. Colorado's mountainous rural casino towns have turned the state into one of top 15 gaming revenue-producing regions. Sports betting legalization in 2021 helped make Colorado a market that gaming operators could no longer ignore. In Blackhawk, three properties account for more than 1,300 hotel rooms, roughly 85 percent of market.
