Montana Sports Betting

Montana was one of four states to have legal sports betting grandfathered in under the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) of 1992. However, sports betting is not allowed under a Montana statute.

In December 2018, two Montana lawmakers announced they were drafting bills ahead of the 2019 session that would allow internet and mobile sports betting and kiosks at bars, restaurants and taverns.

In April 2019, two separate sports betting bills (SB 330 and HB 725) passed through the Senate and landed on the desk of Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock. The difference between the two bills is which agency would act as the regulatory body. If both bills become law, there would be two different types of kiosks. One would be regulated by the lottery commission and the other by the office of the attorney general.

In May 2019, the state authorized sports betting through a network of sports wagering kiosks operated by the Montana Lottery. In March 2020, sports betting went live at more than 100 retail establishments and the website, Sports Bet Montana, also launched, but is only accessible when on the property of a retailer.
