PlayUp Colorado Sportsbook

PlayUp Colorado Sportsbook

Gaming News: PlayUp, a rapidly rising Australia-based sports betting company & racebook launched in Colorado March 9th 2021 through market access agreement with Bull Durham Casino.

PlayUp Sportsbook is a big company in Australia. Now the company is making moves on the US online sports betting market, with New Jersey and Colorado sports betting as their first legal states. They plan on launching in both NJ and CO in early 2021. In New Jersey, they join a competitive betting market with the likes of DraftKings Sportsbook and Unibet Sportsbook. Colorado is less competitive, but still host big brands like PointsBet Sportsbook.

PlayUp CO Sportsbook Sign Up Bonus

PlayUp Colorado welcome bonus is $20 free bet and a 209% first deposit match up to $200. In New Jersey, they give out a $30 free bet for every player who pre-registers on their site before they officially launch. The deposit match bonus is slightly smaller than BetRivers Sportsbook and PlayUp doesn’t offer a risk free bet like William Hill Sportsbook. However, the 200% match makes their bonuses competitive.

Wagering Requirements 5x Bonus + Deposit

PlayUp Promo Code 2021

You don’t need to insert a bonus code for the freebet bonus. The PlayUp welcome bonus code is PLAYUP200. Insert this promo code to claim the 200% up to $200 bonus.

Wagering Requirements

Right now, there are no wagering requirements on PlayUp online gambling site. Their launch offer is a $30 free bet – if you win, you keep the profit (but not the stake). If this PlayUp online sportsbook attaches wagering requirements to their welcome offer, we’ll discuss them in this section.

Sportsbook Promotions

On their Australian site, however, PlayUp has made the questionable decision to hide their promotions. We can’t see this helping PlayUp – aside from ongoing promotions, not much separates one sportsbook from another. They might have the best promos in the business, but if players can’t comparison shop, what good is it? Not everybody wants to create an account just to see the promos.

Sports Betting Markets

We don’t know which markets PlayUp plans to offer in U.S sports betting customers. However, they plan on entering New Jersey online sports betting market, so the provider will likely offer a full variety of wagering options and events. In Australia, PlayUp offers access to a range of over 20 different categories – including a variety of international events. They also have an e-sports betting platform and racebook that they plan on launching in the US.

  • NBA
  • NFL (Super Bowl)
  • NHL (Stanley Cup)
  • MLB (World Series)
  • Golf
  • NCAA
  • Soccer (World Cup)
  • MMA
  • Boxing
  • Tennis
  • Horse Racing Betting
  • Esports
  • College Basketball including March Madness
  • Olympic Games
PlayUp New Jersey Devils

PlayUp is the official partner of the New Jersey Devils, so betting in New Jersey promises to be intersting. Whether they will partner with Colorado sports teams remains to be seen.

Bet Types Available at PlayUp Sportsbook

PlayUp Sportsbook offers a range of opportunities for betting on sports in their current jurisdictions. Here are just a few of the bet types that the company offers on their Australian site. If they add horse betting, you will also get the pari-mutuel horse racing option and other horse betting options as well. Greyhounds betting might become available as well.

  • Moneyline
  • Parlays
  • Over/Unders
  • Point Spread Bets (Asian Handicap)
  • Futures
  • Prop Bets
  • Live Betting

Daily Fantasy Sports

There are also rumors that PlayUp sports betting might be joining the US DFS Market with the likes of DraftKings, Fanduel, and Monkey Knife Fight. Bettors currently have the options to play fantasy contests on their Indian and Australian platform.

Banking Methods at PlayUp Sportsbook

Like most sportsbooks, PlayUp will likely offer sports bettors numerous ways to fund your betting bankroll.

PlayUp online betting site has not yet revealed their payment options. However, they’ll probably offer the same type of deposit/withdrawal methods as their competition. We still don’t know if they will have a PlayPlus card in the US. All the deposits to the gambling site will be instant, but withdrawals will take some time depending on the withdrawal method.

Banking Method Deposits Withdrawals Withdrawal Time
Credit Cards Yes No N/A
Cash at the Casino Cage Yes Yes 1 - 4 hours
Prepaid Card Yes Yes 2 - 6 hours
PayPal Yes Yes 2 - 3 days
ACH/E-checks Yes Yes 3 - 5 days
Bank Transfer Yes No N/A
PayNearMe by 7-Eleven Yes No N/A

PlayUp Sportsbook App

PlayUp plans to offers both an iOS app and Android app. At the bottom of their website, links for the App Store (iOS) and the Android app download are clearly displayed. The iOS app is available in the App Store, but Android users will need to download from PlayUp website, because online sports betting apps are not supported in Google Play.

Creating a new Account

When you create a new account at Playup, the sportsbook will ask for your personal details. Like all online casinos and sportsbooks, the firm does this to comply with the state law and to verify that you are over 21 years old.

  • Name
  • E Mail Address
  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Last Four Digits of Your Social Security Number
  • Password
  • Security Questions

Customer Support

PlayUp has yet to go live, so we don’t know what customer service abilities they will have. However, if their Australian site offers any hints, they may offer two levels of support. They have a FAQ section for common inquiries, but for more complex issues, PlayUp has a live chat client.

PlayUp Sportsbook – Conclusion

For a relatively unknown sportsbook brand (outside Australia), PlayUp has quite the hype train going. After announcing their intention to expand into America, they raised more than 25 million AUD in venture capital.

These funds could allow PlayUp to do some really exciting stuff. If they match the experience they currently deliver on their AU site, NJ and CO bettors are in for a treat. Anything beyond that will be a bonus.

PlayUp FAQ

▶️ Is PlayUp Sportsbook legit?

Yes. To obtain a New Jersey and Colorado sports betting license, PlayUp has obtained a license from the NJDGE and the Colorado Department of Revenue. To do this, they must demonstrate that they plan on running their business in a way that puts gamers first.

For example, PlayUp has proven how they will keep operational and players funds separate. They've also shown regulators their dispute resolution mechanisms, which will treat customer complaints fairly.

For these reasons and others, you can trust PlayUp Sportsbook with your money.

▶️ What is PlayUp Sportsbook?

PlayUp Sportsbook is an online bookie from Australia. Since 2019, they’ve offered Daily Fantasy Sports and traditional betting in over 20 sports/leagues to the Australian people. PlayUp has caught fire Down Under, turning over 270 million AUD in wagers in the last fiscal year.

They now have plans to expand to America, New Zealand, and India in the immediate future.

After CO and NJ sports betting, it's unclear if PlayUp expands further in America. If they do, the logical choice would be PA sports betting market. Indiana sports betting and Michigan sports betting would also be logical choices for PlayUp USA Sportsbook.

▶️ Does PlayUp Sportsbook have a mobile app?

Yes – they offer their Australian people access to apps for both Android and iOS mobile device operating systems, and they have plans to do the same in America. Stay tuned. Their online gambling platform works on the web browser as well.

▶️ Does PlayUp offer a no-deposit bonus?

Yes – if you sign up for their pre-launch mailing list, you’ll get a $30 free bet when their NJ sport betting sites go live. All you have to do is supply your name and email address – it’s that easy!

On their Colorado sports betting site they offer a $20 freebet which you get when you create a new account.

▶️ Does PlayUp USA have an online casino?

Currently PlayUp doesn't have an casino anywhere. However, most betting brands in the NJ online gambling market have casino bonus offers as well. Therefore, it is possible that some time after they get their online sports betting license, PlayUp might join the NJ online casino industry with the likes of Golden Nugget, BetMGM Casino, and Caesars Casino.

In Colorado, they have a market access agreement with Bull Durham Casino, so in theory they have a land based casino in Black Hawk.

It's unlikely that they'll offer poker sites though.

▶️ When will PlayUp launch?

PlayUp launched in Colorado on March 9th 2021 through their sports betting license in Colorado in partnership with Bull Durham Saloon.

Laila Mintas, CEO of PlayUp USA, has stated that she is looking forward to launch in the first quarter of this year. They have a deal with Greenwood Racing / Penn National Gaming & Parx Casino operated Freehold Racetrack for market access in New Jersey. Their racebook is sanctioned by the North Dakota Racing Commission.
