On July 2, 2009, Colorado casinos began to allow $100 maximum bets, offer the games of craps and roulette, and remain open 24 hours a day as the result of Amendment 50, approved by Colorado voters on Nov. 4, 2008. The amendment earmarks additional State revenues generated by the the increased limits, games and hours to community colleges and to the gaming towns and counties. The amendment also requires voter approval for any increase in gaming tax rates.


Prior to the implementation of Amendment 50, casinos were limited to a $5 maximum wager on slot machines, live blackjack and live poker, while being open from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m.
