Montana Lottery approves sports betting rules
The Montana Lottery Commission has approved rules for its new sports wagering product in the state, which will be named Sports Bet Montana.
The rules will now be published in the Montana Administrative Register, which is published twice per month. The register contains all of the state’s administrative regulations as well as the state attorney general’s opinions and interpretations of those regulations.
The new regulations would allow for anonymous retail sports betting. However, all mobile bettors must sign up for an account, while retail players will still have to verify their identity before they can bet.
The regulations also provide for a voluntary self-exclusion program, as well as the option to set personal deposit, spending and time limits. Players must be aged 18 or above to place a bet. Under the regulations, any accounts which do not place a bet for 18 months must be closed.
