Saratoga Casino Black Hawk poised to open Betfred sportsbook

Colorado sportsbook posted record revenue in November, yielding almost $2m in taxes for the state, despite the $475m handling fall short.

Colorado-based Saratoga Casino Black Hawk is set to launch sports betting services at the property after securing a new partnership with Betfred USA Sports.

The partnership, which is awaiting regulatory approval, will see Betfred offer Colorado bettors access to mobile and internet betting as well as a full sports book at the Black Hawk property.

“We are excited to have Betfred as our sports wagering partner,” added Daniel Gerrity, president of Saratoga Casino Black Hawk.

“With over 50 years of international experience in the industry, it’s a great opportunity to leverage their expertise along with the Saratoga brand to become the market leader in sports wagering in Colorado.”

Colorado became the 19th state to legalise sports betting in November 2019, after facing a narrow margin of 51 per cent to 49 per cent voting in favour of the legislation according to unofficial returns.

“We are delighted to partner with Saratoga Casino Black Hawk,” stated Mark Stebbings, Betfred Group chief operating officer.

“This is an exciting opportunity for both companies and we look forward to sharing our joint expertise to provide excellent service and value for sports bettors both on premise in Black Hawk and online to the people within the state of Colorado.”
