A petition to raise the bet limit from $5 to $100 has be signed by 130,000
voters and filed with the Colorado secretary of state. The number of signatures
is nearly double the 76,000 needed to qualify for the November ballot. The
secretary's office must now validate the signatures.
"Coloradans have been really consistent in turning down proposals to expand
gaming beyond the three mountain communities," said Katy Atkinson, a political
consultant. "But what they'd be doing is pretty much giving local voters
permission to change the bet limits."
The ballot initiative would also allow Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple
Creek to expand casino hours and add craps and roulette in their local casinos.
