Colorado’s “Play Legit’” campaign targets illegal gambling

This week, Colorado will start out the 2024 Illegal Gaming Awareness Campaign to alert locals and visitors to be cautious of unlicensed gambling operators. 

The campaign “Play Legit. Gamble Only Where Legal” seeks to inform people about the risks associated with illegal gambling and the reasons that regulated casinos are so important.

The Colorado Division of Gaming’s lead Chris Schroder asserts that it is never worthwhile to jeopardize your safety in gambling illegally because there are so many opportunities for legal gambling.  The goal of the campaign is for everyone to follow the guidelines and maintain Colorado as a secure and responsible gambling destination. Everyone benefits when illicit gambling is identified and eradicated.

In addition to failing to safeguard players, illegal gambling operators can be connected to more serious crimes like fraud, drug trafficking, human trafficking, and theft.  The wellbeing of communities and public safety are threatened by this.

Those who engage in illegal gambling run the risk of having their financial and personal information stolen, which might result in identity theft, unreliable payouts, and possible legal consequences including fines and jail time.
