Colorado is considering changing its self-exclusion rules for problem gamblers to create a statewide database that would be shared with all sportsbook operators in the state.

The new system would require both mobile and retail sportsbooks to redirect the players wishing to self-exclude for one, three, or five years to a Colorado Division of Gaming portal that would put them in a statewide database. That database then would be redistributed to all 26 licensed sportsbook operators in the state, who would be required to exclude those players.

Players wishing to self-exclude in Colorado must now do so separately with each sportsbook operator they use, often giving them different terms and dates for their self-imposed gambling bans and without operators sharing information about their most at-risk clients.
