HELENA, Montana (August 24, 2022) — Sports Bet Montana paid out over $550,000 to Montana bettors in the last week while retailers earned more than $19,000 in commission.

Baseball still reigns with a 76 percent handle for the week ending Aug 24. Football follows behind with an 11 percent handle. MMA ends the week with a 5 percent handle for total bets wagered.

Bettors pocketed $557,364 in the last week while retailers saw over $19,800 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.
