Colorado posts record $210.7m sports betting handle in October Chris Altruda, CoBets.com · December 2, 2020 at 7:22 am For the fifth consecutive month since its May launch, sports betting in Colorado set a record in terms of monthly handle. The Dept. of Revenue on Monday released its October report, showing a handle of $210.7 million. The total was sightly more than $3 million better than September’s handle of $207.7 million, and Colorado became the fifth state to post back-to-back monthly handles exceeding $200 million for September and October. The sportsbooks across the Centennial State fared better in October than September, generating a combined revenue of $17.4 million — an increase more than four times September’s total of nearly $4.2 million. October’s total accounts for more than 43% of the $40.3 million in revenue generated in the first six months of legalized sports wagering.
