The Montana Lottery Commission has announced that it expects to begin the roll-out of sports betting terminals across the state in the week commencing 9 March, with a view to allowing consumers to place legal wagers soon after.
Sports Bet Montana, the Montana Lottery’s new sports betting product, will be responsible for the terminals that will be installed at licensed locations.
Once the terminals are installed, the Montana Lottery will provide training to all staff that will be working with the machines, after which they will be able to begin offering sports betting.
“We are in the home stretch of our planning and testing,” the Commission’s communications manager Jennifer McKee said. “We are really looking forward to getting Sports Bet Montana in the market and we’re as excited as Montanans are for betting to begin.”
