Why can’t you bet on the Super Bowl coin toss in Colorado?

DENVER (KDVR) – It’s the easiest wager to make: Heads or tails.

But in the state of Colorado, all bets are off.

The Colorado Department of Revenue states that the 50/50 bet is a no-go. The gaming rules read those bets based on chance – like the coin flip – are prohibited.

Colorado is not alone on this law. Arizona, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia all don’t accept bets on the coin flip, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Prior to 2023, the team that won the coin toss had lost the last seven Super Bowls. The Kansas City Chiefs won the toss and the game last season.

Other popular Super Bowl bets not allowed in Colorado include the color of the Gatorade bath, the national anthem, and halftime show.

According to FanDuel, novelty prop bets on “Taylor Swift or the halftime show are not available in any of the U.S. states.”
