Office of Fantasy Contest Operator Registration and Licensure: News

Sunset Review Underway

The Colorado Office of Policy, Research and Regulatory Reform is conducting a sunset review of Fantasy Contest Operator. Analysis in a sunset review is performed to determine whether the regulatory program is necessary and should be continued, modified or eliminated. This review will produce a report with recommendations to the Colorado General Assembly and result in subsequent legislation based on the recommendations in the report. Your input is an important component of a successful sunset review. If you would like to submit comments online, please visit COPRRR's website.  


Applications Now Online

Applications to become a licensed or registered fantasy contest operator are now available. Go to the Office of Fantasy Contest Operator Registration and Licensure Applications and Forms webpage. The new Fantasy Contest Operator Program formally begins July 1, 2017, and any fantasy contest operator must be licensed or registered in order to operate in Colorado.  If you or your organization want to be licensed or registered by July 1, you must submit an application to the Division of Professions and Occupations by June 1, 2017. If you are not licensed or registered by July 1, 2017, you cannot conduct business as a fantasy contest operator in Colorado until you become licensed or registered.

We continue to develop this program and welcome your feedback. Please contact Zen Mayhugh, the Interim Program Director for the Office of Fantasy Contest Operator Registration and Licensure, at zen.mayhugh@state.co.us
