The first year of Colorado legalized sports gambling is in the books with some eye-popping returns. Coloradans wagered more than $2.3 billion on sports between May 1, 2020, and April 30, 2021, according to an unaudited report from the state’s department of revenue. Colorado’s net sports betting proceeds (total bets placed minus all payouts/taxes) reached $65,962,159.
