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.
