First things first, there will be online mobile betting in Colorado.
Wagering through a mobile device will be possible, providing you are within state borders at the time bet is placed.

FanDuel and PointsBet will be among the first names to make a splash in CO
We already know FanDuel and PointsBet will be among the first names to make a splash in CO. DFS giants, FanDuel, have yet to confirm which land-based casino they will partner with.
But PointsBet, who expanded operations and opened a second HQ in Denver during summer 2019, will operate under the license of Double Eagle Casino & Hotel. The Australian sports betting pioneers seem intent becoming the sportsbook for locals and thus have made their move early.
As one of the first western states to launch an unrestricted marketplace expect a host of other big names including 888, Bet 365, PlaySugarHouse, Caesars Sportsbook, William Hill, FOX Bet, and DraftKings to join a highly competitive market likened to New Jersey and expected to generate as much as $275 million.
