TYPES OF CASINOS IN MONTANA
There are two types of casinos in Montana, First, Montana law permits bars and taverns to have up to 20 video gaming devices that play video poker, video keno, or video bingo. These machines are operated in partnership with the state and they are not permitted to pay out in cash; instead, they print out a receipt which must be taken to a cashier.
The maximum bet on these machines is $2 and the maximum payout is limited to $800. Montana gaming regulations require these machines to return a minimum of 80%.
INDIAN CASINOS IN MONTANA
There are also Indian casinos in Montana which offer Class II video gaming devices that look like slot machines, but are actually bingo games and the spinning reels are for “entertainment purposes only.”
The maximum bet on the machines in Indian casinos is $5 and the maximum payout is capped at $1,500. According to Montana’s Gambling Control Division, there are no minimum payback percentages required for gaming machines on Indian reservations.
