Colorado casinos are betting big on higher limits and new games with amendment 77 Sarah Mulholland, CPR · October 22, 2020 at 1:54 pm Casinos are wagering an amendment to the state’s constitution will help lure the high rollers that typically leave Colorado to gamble. Coloradans are voting this election on Amendment 77, which would let residents of the state’s gambling towns decide whether to lift a statewide cap on how much a person can risk on a single bet. The measure also includes addig new games. Supporters of the changes say they would make Colorado more competitive with other states that don’t set betting limits — and have a wider array of games. For example — baccarat. Currently, betters can’t play the popular card game in Colorado casinos. That pushes people to go elsewhere, said David Farahi, chief operating officer at Monarch Casino in Black Hawk.
