Category:Gambling localities in Colorado
Jump to navigation Jump to search
There are two ways, under existing Colorado law as of 2015, that casino gambling can be permitted within the state:
- Native American tribes, operating under tribal sovereignty, may operate casinos, as in the unincorporated community of Towaoc.
- State law may authorize casino gambling in specific cities or towns. As of 2015, three such localities -- Blackhawk, Central City, and Cripple Creek -- had been so authorized; all three towns had gambling legalized in 1991. Many other localities have been proposed as casino gambling sites since 1991, but all such proposals, as of 2015, have failed.
