Business Licenses


Slot Machines

The Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission issues four types of business licenses:


  • Retailer for persons permitting or conducting limited gaming on their premises, also known as a casino license.

  • Operator for persons permitting slot machines on their premises or to persons, such as slot machine routers, who place and operate slot machines on the premises of a retailer.
  • Manufacturer/Distributor for companies that manufacture or serve as a distributor for approved slot or video machines and component parts.

  • Associated Equipment Supplier is required for a person who imports, manufactures, or distributes associated equiment in Colorado, or who otherwise acts as an associated equipment supplier. 

No license is required of any other suppliers of goods to casinos, although the Division of Gaming reserves the right to subject any business or individual supplying goods to a casino to a finding of suitability.
