The Montana Lottery announced that it will now accept applications for licenses from companies offering its new Sports Bet Montana product.
The granting of gaming licenses began after the sports betting betting rules were published last week in the Montana Administrative Register, after approval in November by the Montana Lottery Commission.
In making the announcement, the director of the Montana Lottery Angela Wong said:
“Today is a great day for Sports Bet Montana” and added:
“We have been working a long time for this and are excited to see that hard work was worth the sorry and excited to begin the process of launching sports betting.”
According to the approved rules, players can only bet on locations that have a Sports Bet Montana license. Even when both the odds and the bets of the next available events can be seen through a mobile application, players can only bet within authorized locations, on a site or through their phones.
