Montana Casino Guide
Online Casinos in Montana
Like most of the other states across America, online casinos have not been legalized in Montana yet. There is the option to play free games, like blackjack and poker, through social casino platforms online as it is completely legal.
In Montana, online gambling is considered a crime unless the state has given permission to wager beforehand. The consequences are the same for both players and casinos. Montana laws for online betting are some of the most serious in the country and shouldn't be taken lightly.
While sports betting was recently legalized in the state, we think it will take much longer for online casinos.

Types of Casinos in Montana
There are two types of casinos in Montana that offer electronic gaming machines and there are no Montana casinos with table games. 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 that 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.
Unlike Montana, in many states, the slot machine payback statistics for that particular state’s casinos are released as a matter of public record. Just click here to see a list of slot machine payback statistics for casinos in all U.S. states.
