HELENA, Montana (June 22, 2022) — Sports Bet Montana paid out over $640,000 to Montana bettors in the last week while retailers earned more than $20,000 in commission.

Baseball is in the lead with a 69 per cent handle, basketball falling to a 12 per cent handle for the week ending June 20. Hockey finishes the week with an 8 per cent handle while golf settles with a 6 per cent handle.

Bettors pocketed $640,495 in the last week while retailers saw over $20,100 in commissions.

Sports Bet Montana, powered by the Montana Lottery, was launched after legislation passed in 2019 became law. Sports Bet was designed to benefit Montana players, Montana businesses and Montana citizens.

The Montana Lottery was created by a citizen’s referendum in 1986. Since then, it has paid over $774 million in prizes and returned approximately $302 million to the State of Montana and $83 million in retailer commissions.
