The Android app must be downloaded direct from the sportsbook website. Next, complete the registration form and provide some key details. You’ll also need to provide part of your Social Security Number in order to verify your identity.

    Sportsbook Bonus Types in Montana


    Montana only boasts one regulated sportsbook and it doesn’t offer a whole lot in the way of bonuses. However, here are some of the promotions we expect to find at legalized Montana sports betting sites when more appear. 

    • Risk-free bets
    • Free bets
    • Deposit match bonus
    • Enhanced odds
    • Profit Boost
    • Parlay boost
    • Parlay insurance
    • Loyalty program 
    • Money-back deals
    • Cash Out

    Sports Bet Montana: The sole sportsbook in Montana at time of writing was Sports Bet Montana. The sportsbook doesn’t offer a welcome bonus but there are regular deals including enhanced odds (listed under ‘Specials’). 

    Online Sports Betting in Montana

    Online sportsbooks are legal in Montana for gamblers aged 18 or over. However, there’s one big catch: you must be on the premises of a brick ‘n mortar sportsbook or lottery retailer to make a bet. 

    Sportsbooks use the PinPoint tech from GeoComply to finely locate gamblers. Under Montana gaming law, sports bettors must be on the premises of approved sportsbooks and casinos in order to place mobile bets. 

    Currently, there is just one legal mobile sportsbook in Montana: Sports Bet Montana. Major sportsbook providers such as DraftKings and FanDuel are still waiting to enter the regulated Montana market. 

    Intralot / Sports Bet Montana: Powered by Intralot (who also provide the software for the Montana Lottery), Sports Bet Montana accepts wagers through a mobile phone. You must be 18 or over to gamble through the Sports Bet Montana app. You’ll find 100s of markets on big US sports such as football, basketball and hockey.

    Sportsbook Regulation in Montana

    Montana sports betting was legalized in 2019 following the passing of HB 725. This bill was signed by Gov. Steve Bullock, giving full control of sports betting to the Montana Lottery

    Currently, only Sports Bet Montana offers regulated sports betting. You can bet through an Apple smartphone by downloading the software from the Apple App Store. Alternatively, install an Android .apk file direct from the Sports Bet Montana website. 

    Under Montana gaming law, you can place bets in person at a valid retail location. There is a full list of Montana Lottery agents on the Sports Bet Montana site. From Absarokee to Wolf Point, you can place bets at hundreds of casinos, bars and kiosks as long as you’re at their location.

    Montana has over 300 land-based casinos and betting outlets in 2022. There are eight tribal casinos in the state, but not all offer a sports betting facility. 

    Here are 10 of the best casinos which let you place mobile bets on sports on their premises:

    Deposits & Withdrawals in Montana

    The range of deposit options at Montana’s regulated mobile sportsbooks is small. Currently, you can fund your account using these banking methods:

    • Visa/MasterCard debit
    • VIP Preferred (ACH/e-Check)
    • Play+ Prepaid Card

    However, in time, as more Montana sportsbooks are regulated, we expect that list to grow and include alternative payment options such as:

    • PayPal
    • Online bank transfer
    • Mobile payments
    • PayNearMe
