Monarch Casino Resort Spa is ready to give you a sports betting game plan before you make your own bets in Colorado this May

Football’s biggest day is coming up soon, creating the perfect opportunity to get the scoop on sports betting in Colorado! Monarch Casino Resort Spa’s general manager, Craig Pleva, is available to talk about how sports betting will work, the unique terminology sports fans will need to know, and the crazy (sometimes weird!) bets fans might be able to make on their favorite team starting May 1st. Proposition DD passed on the November 2019 ballot, allowing for legalized sports betting to begin May 1st throughout the state. 

“People who plan on trying their luck placing a sports bet for the first time should absolutely know what lines are, how parlays work and what a ‘prop’ bet means. We can help with that.” said Craig Pleva, General Manager of Monarch Casino in Black Hawk.

Monarch Casino Resort Spa and its sister casino, Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno, Nevada are unusual in the gaming industry because they run their own sportsbook instead of contracting another company to do it. This gives Monarch an insider’s perspective on sportsbooks and how they work.

Monarch is putting the finishing touches on an incredible renovation that includes a 23-story hotel, more than 500 rooms and suites, and a luxurious spa and pool facility, 4 exciting new restaurants, and several bars. Everyone 21+ is welcome to enjoy Monarch’s exciting gaming action, delicious buffet and lively bar scene, and free parking just a short drive from downtown Denver!
