As Colorado’s gambling industry grows, it’s vital that responsible gambling programs keep pace.

With that in mind, the Colorado Division of Gaming has partnered with the Problem Gambling Coalition of Colorado to launch a voluntary self-exclusion program in the Centennial State.

This program is a priority of the division’s new director, Chris Schroder. He has championed responsible gambling at every stop he has taken throughout his career.

In three years of Colorado sports betting, from May 2020 through April 2023, more than $12 billion has been wagered. The Colorado betting marketplace is thriving, which makes responsible gambling programs paramount. This self-exclusion program is a solid starting point.

The new self-exclusion program, which was launched during September’s Responsible Gambling Education Month, allows people to enroll in the program voluntarily. Doing so will exclude them from all Colorado regulated gaming. This includes casino gambling and sports wagering at both retail locations and online.
