The online betting app will also now have signage at Ball Arena, the home stadium of the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche. This comes just weeks after the platform’s full launch in the states of Virginia and West Virginia, as well as its involvement in a new responsible gaming campaign.
Fanatics Sportsbook Colorado Is Now Available
Colorado is now home to a new online betting app with the launch of Fanatics Sportsbook in the state. The online betting platform is now available to download in the Centennial State thanks to Fanatics Holdings Inc. subsidiary Fanatics Betting and Gaming. This means that Fanatics Online Sportsbook is available in eight states: Colorado, West Virginia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee, and Ohio. There are also Fanatics retail sportsbooks available at Nationwide Arena (home of the Columbus Blue Jackets) and FedEx Field (home of the Washington Commanders).
As this is part of the transition from PointsBet to Fanatics Sportsbook, existing PointsBet Sportsbook users can enter their same information when signing into Fanatics Sportsbook, as the login credentials remain the same. Users can access their account and start betting with the Fanatics mobile app, which is available on the Google Play Store (Android) and App Store (iOS).
In addition to being available in Colorado, Fanatics Sportsbook will now have official signage at Ball Arena, which formerly had PointsBet advertisements and even the PointsBet Club. The stadium hosts both the defending NBA champion Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche, as well as the Colorado Mammoth of the National Lacrosse League.
Fanatics Sportsbook Online showcases a number of unique features, such as the FanCash promotion. This gives bettors anywhere from 1-5% back on wagers that they can use for Fanatics merchandise or convert into bonus bets. Expect more states to continue the transition from PointsBet to Fanatics Sportsbook as 2023 comes to a close.

Fanatics Partners With New Responsible Gaming Campaign
The news of Fanatics Sportsbook entering the Colorado sports betting market comes weeks after the platform launched in two new states: Virginia and West Virginia. With the West Virginia launch, Fanatics Betting and Gaming also debuted its iGaming site Fanatics Casino.
The online casino features the exclusive Fanatics Blackjack game plus roulette and a wide range of different online slot machines. It remains to be seen if Fanatics Casino will continue launching in states with legal iGaming such as Michigan or New Jersey. Because Colorado does not have legal online casino gaming, Fanatics Casino is not available in the area.
Plus, Fanatics Sportsbook is now part of the new “Never Know What’s Next” responsible gaming campaign. The online betting site has joined fellow sports betting operators like DraftKings Sportsbook, ESPN Bet, and FanDuel Sportsbook in supporting the campaign, which focuses on the unpredictable nature of sporting events.
The campaign made its debut on the NBA’s YouTube channel and was planned with the start of the NBA In-Season Tournament in mind. In addition to the NBA, the NHL and MLB have partnered with the campaign.
