Gaming Business Licenses


Who Needs a Business License?

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

  • Manufacturer/Distributor — Companies that manufacture or serve as a distributor for approved slot machines and component parts.
  • Retailer — Persons permitting or conducting limited gaming on their premises.
  • Operator — Persons permitting slot machines on their premises or persons, such as slot machine routers, who place and operate slot machines on the premises of a retailer.
  • Associated Equipment Supplier — Persons who import, manufacture, or distribute associated equipment in Colorado, or who otherwise act as an associated equipment supplier.

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