TwinSpires Sportsbook is now officially available in Colorado. If you are a horse racing fan, you will likely have heard of the TwinSpires betting brand. TwinSpires is the online sports betting site owned by Churchill Downs Incorporated and is also home to the world-renowned Kentucky Derby. The company already offers retail sports betting at Bronco Billy’s in Colorado, as well as at several other locations through the US, including the TwinSpires Sportsbook at Island Resort & Casino, in Michigan. However, the TwinSpires wagering brand has expanded its footprint by offering new online betting services after undergoing a rebrand from BetAmerica.
As part of its expansion plans, the TwinSpires sportsbook is now live in Colorado. Players in the Centennial State can now access the TwinSpires sportsbook app, available for iPhone & Android, to access an industry-leading online betting platform for horse racing and sports. Sports betting in Colorado has been highly successful since its launch on May 1, 2020, and TwinSpires now provides another option for bettors.
New players who sign up for an account at TwinSpires can benefit from some special perks, including risk-free bets and weekly promotions. Additionally, the TwinSpires sportsbook Colorado offers live streaming of numerous horse races, a wide range of bet types, and several sports betting markets.
This TwinSpires sportsbook review covers what bettors in Colorado can expect when they join the book, including Twin Spires sportsbook Colorado promo offers and more. The operator is late to the party and joining an already competitive market with big, established brands like BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel already taking the lion’s share of the market. But is there room for TS to muscle in on the action? We find out below.
Creating A TwinSpires Colorado Sportsbook Account
Creating an online account with TwinSpires is a straightforward process. Bettors must head to the TwinSpires website at sportsbook.twinspires.com and click the Register button. They must then enter some personal details, including your name, phone number, and email address. Additionally, the book will ask for your physical address, birth date, and last four digits of your Social Security number. Finally, you will need to create a username and password and some security questions and answers for verification purposes.
Because the TwinSpires casino and sportsbook are integrated, you can log into the sportsbook with the same credentials if you have an existing online casino account. If you do this, you will be transferred to the sportsbook. Please note that you should not create a new sportsbook account with your casino credentials, as this will lead to both of those accounts being locked. Registration takes around 5-10 minutes in total and is a pain-free sign up process.
TwinSpires Mobile App
If you want to bet on TwinSpires racing on the go, then you will be delighted that the TwinSpires sportsbook app Android and iOS allows you to do just that. The app works superbly on both iOS and Android devices, providing access to all the brand’s features, as you can on the desktop site.
TwinSpires Sportsbook iPhone app
iOS users can download the iPhone app from TwinSpires Casino & Sports straight from the iTunes app store. The app is small in size and features both a sportsbook and casino. Unlike some operators who split them into two apps, TS only has 1 app, but you cant use the mobile casino in Colorado. Go to sportsbook.twinspires.com and sign up for an account, then scroll to the footer of the mobile site and click on get on the app store. In iTunes, press GET and install the app.
TwinSpires Sportsbook Android app
Google Play has only recently allowed sports betting and real money gambling apps to be available in the US version of the Android app store. Some operators have rushed to launch an Android version, but TwinSpires is not one of these operators. The Android application from TwinSpires sports is available, you do need to download it as an APK from the mobile site which is fast, safe, and easy to do. Follow these instructions:
- Go to sportsbook.twinspires.com and sign up for an account,
- Scroll to the footer of the page and select download for Android
- Press Download on the TwinkSpires.apk
- After the file has downloaded, press open
- Install the app, open it up and log in
So far we have been hugely impressed with the mobile app. The app has fast loading times and is easy to navigate to all of the different tabs and categories. We weren’t too sure what we were going to get given the slow and sluggish app from BetAmerica but this is a vast improvement.
The design is pleasing to the eye and the color scheme works well. The apps are laid out in an easy-to-use, logical format, and jumping between events and markets is easy. Placing a bet using the mobile site or app is simple. There is the main menu located on the left of the display. Tap on sports and you get a full A-Z of sports, live sports, super odds, and a list of the most popular sports. Of course, football (NFL) and Basketball (NBA) take top spots, but TwinSpires offers markets on all the big US sports.
The app performed well during our review and we never had any crashing or glitches with using either the Android app or iOS version. If anything, the Android app was slightly faster at getting a wager down.
