In partnership with Twin River Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:TRWH) and Golden Gates Casino Black Hawk, Colorado is the fifth state in the United States where the industry-leading FanDuel Sportsbook online and mobile platform is available. FanDuel is bringing its best-in-class online sports betting experience to sports fans in the Centennial State who can now place wagers across professional football, basketball, baseball, golf, MMA, soccer, table tennis, darts and tennis with a multitude of betting and payment options available.

The FanDuel Sportsbook is available for download via iOS and Android for residents and visitors to Colorado. At launch, the FanDuel Sportsbook will offer a daily free to play game called The ANYTHINGBOOK, where customers can test their sports and pop culture knowledge for the opportunity to win daily cash prizes. Each day, a new question will be posted and correct answers will be rewarded with $5 in site credit.

“Colorado is home to a passionate group of sports fans and we are incredibly excited to show them why FanDuel is the number one online sportsbook in the country,” said Mike Raffensperger, CMO of FanDuel Group. “Our free to play ANYTHINGBOOK game is designed to engage fans during this period of limited sporting events and introduce them to FanDuel Sportsbook’s unique features and markets.”

Five-time NBA All-Star and NBA Finals MVP Chauncey Billups once again made history in the state of Colorado Friday morning.

On the same day Rush Street Interactive (RSI) launched BetRivers.com, the first online sportsbook in the state of Colorado, the legendary former University of Colorado star became the first resident to place a legal bet, placing $100 on Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year at +2000.

Billups, a three-time high school "Mr. Basketball" in the state of Colorado and 1997 consensus All-American for the Buffs, spent six of his 20 NBA seasons with the Denver Nuggets, including a 2009 trip to the Western Conference Finals. Billups also led the Detroit Pistons to back-to-back NBA Finals appearances, ultimately winning the title and earning NBA Finals MVP honors in 2007.

"This is huge for the state of Colorado, both the economy and for avid sports fans in the state," said NBA Legend Chauncey Billups. "Betting has become such a big part of the daily sports conversation and this move is a huge step in the right direction for the industry and the sports world."

The NBA legend, nicknamed "Mr. Big Shot" for his propensity to make clutch shots with the game on the line, enjoys the wide variety of betting options BetRivers.com provides.

"Above all else, I am a sports fan," said Billups. "I love football, just love it.  Boxing and baseball too.  I love being able to learn more and have options when you want to get involved and make a play."

Through its partnership with JP McGill's Hotel & Casino, BetRivers.com offers its players the chance to place legal online bets in the state of Colorado for the first time ever. BetRivers.com offers bets on a variety of U.S. and worldwide sports, including the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB, along with tennis, soccer, golf and international competitions such as Korean baseball, Taiwanese basketball, Russian ice hockey and English darts.

Players can register online and play instantly from anywhere in the state via desktop, or on Android or Apple mobile devices by visiting BetRivers.com. Players will receive a match bonus of up to $250 on their first deposit. Participants must be physically located within the state borders of Colorado and must be at least 21 years old to wager.
