About the sportsbook

The Sky Ute mobile betting app is the product of Colorado's Sky Ute Casino. It is only the second tribal casino to have offered mobile sports betting as of now, behind Mohegan Sun. In order to launch the mobile sportsbook the casino has partnered with US Bookmaking, a very well known sportsbook company based out of Nevada.

The mobile app is also unique in that it is the second tribal owned sportsbook to go online in the country. They have also produced the app completely in-house, meaning no partnerships with major software or developer companies. Sky Ute is located in Ignacia, Colorado and is owned and operated by the Southern Ute Indian Tribe. 

The mobile app was one of the first to launch in Colorado, going fully live on June 11, 2019. The sportsbook is one of the finest examples we have seen of in-house development across the country. There are plenty of sports covered including the main American sports that are likely to appeal to the majority of bettors.

Live betting is also almost already up and running which is a major step in the right direction. The sportsbook claims that it has the best odds in Colorado, and although Smarkets may lay stake to that claim, Sky Ute indeed is at the top of the competition for lowest odds on many games and events.

Top reasons to use Sky Ute Sportsbook:

  • Wide selection of American sports available for betting

  • Great mobile design that is easy to navigate

  • Boast some of the best odds in Colorado, with extremely low margins

  • Lots of industry experience from sports betting partners and staff 

Sky Ute Official Betting App

The bright and unique design is immediately noticeable after first using the Sky Ute sportsbook app. The color scheme and Sky Ute logo are just the beginning of what is a professional and well done job producing this sportsbook. The mobile app itself handles well, complete with smooth transitions and has very few glitches even in its early stages. 

On the outside, the layout of the mobile betting app is set up in much of the same fashion as many other sportsbook apps across the country. The main page especially resembles many other betting apps, with the main events listed down the center and tabs both above and below. 

This design works well for them however as it makes navigation simple and the mobile app visually appealing. From the main page you can easily navigate to a specific sport that you would like to bet on or head to the live betting section to place bets on current competitions. All throughout, nothing is particularly difficult to find. 

The lack of prominent betting features such as odds boosts or additional competitions may be a drawback, but with more updates certain to come this should not be a threatening concern. Given that the sportsbook was produced by Sky Ute Casino themselves, it holds up surprisingly well to other competitors in the state. 

Registration & Verification

Registering on Sky Ute sportsbook can be done entirely on the mobile app. This is excellent news and a testament to the laws surrounding Colorado sports betting. The registration process is extremely simple and all takes place on one page.

Deposits & Withdrawals

There is currently only one form of payment method for both deposits and withdrawals on Sky Ute. This is quite common in states where sports betting is just starting to begin. The method available is also widely used by sportsbooks across the country.

  • Sky Ute Play+ Card

These play+ cards can be applied for directly off of the Sky Ute app, and received in the mail in a week or two. The card acts as a prepaid account, where you can deposit and withdraw money from and use to pay various businesses.

What are the best features of Sky Ute Sportsbook?

The best feature of Skye Ute would likely be the odds that are given for games and competitions. The sportsbook boasts that it has the best odds in Colorado, and although that may not always be true, they usually come pretty close. 

The margins on Sky Ute are very low, which is why the sportsbook is able to continuously offer great odds for its sports and games.
