HELENA, Montana (July 13, 2022) — Sports Bet Montana paid out over $479,000 to Montana bettors in the last week while retailers earned more than $17,000 in commission.

Baseball climbs to an 86 percent handle for the week ending July 11. Basketball claims the second-place title with a 5 percent handle. Golf, tennis and MMA follow behind with a 2 percent handle each.

Bettors pocketed $479,088 in the last week while retailers saw over $17,100 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 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.
