Colorado’s total betting handle stood at $310.7m in June 2023, a 19% decline from the $385.2m the Centennial state achieved in May.

This also represented a 0.8% fall from the $313.2m the state reported in the same period last year.

Of the total wagers, the vast majority resulted from online wagers at $308.2m, with just $2.44m originating from retail and land-based bets.

Players bet the highest totals on baseball, which received $104.6m in wagers. The second and third most popular sports were basketball and tennis, reporting $57.9m and $23.7m respectively.

This represented a change from June 2022, when ice hockey was the state’s third most popular sport to bet on instead of tennis.
