Montana is all about college football and now even college basketball.  Bookies can do well here as there is no mobile sports wagering, just tacky kiosks in taverns.


How to Start Your Online Mobile Sportsbook in Montana

A nominal fee gets you a customized website for all your players, full lines management, live in-play betting, hundreds of prop offerings daily and full reporting.  This is just some of the features available from a pay per head software platform and service.  AcePerHead is currently running a FREE WEEK every month FOR LIFE promo.

Be carreful to avoid software providers that only offer the software and nothing more.  Also be careful of those companies that charge excessively for the right to use their betting software.

Is Sports Betting Regulated in Montana?

Yes but only kiosks are offered.  Bookies can provide their players with customized websites for both their laptops and mobile devices.


Never accept customers you have not fully screened beforehand.  You should either be familiar with your customers or they should contain references.  A pay per head has eliminated a number of elements of the bookmaking business once deemed to be illegal such as the operation of a wire room and the settlement of payments/collections via cash.  For example, bets are placed over a secure website with servers outside the United States.  Bets by phone are strongly discouraged

Pay per heads like AcePerHead also offer money transactions via Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that take place via the website.

Take That Extra Step:

  • Do not take bets over the phone.
  • Avoid taking on customers who reside outside your state.
  • Know your customers and check referrals.
  • Do not engage with individuals involved in any type of criminal activities.
  • Use cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin Tumblers provided by AcePerHead, for secure anonymous transactions.
  • Keep your customers information private.
  • Always file your taxes.

Today's pay per head businesses are regular sponsors on your favorite search engines so they enjoy maximum exposure, but not all pay per head businesses are the same.  AcePerHead is one of the most established in the industry.

Avoid those services that only offer the software for super cheap and nothing else.

Montana Team Report (Updated April 1, 2023)

Montana and Montana State College Football - You won't even always find lines on games these teams play in.  Pay per head providers can offer odds for all the games if you desire as the bookie.

Montana State Basketball - Markquis Nowell had 17 points and 14 assists and No. 3 seed Kansas State held off 14th-seeded Montana State 77-65 for its first NCAA Tournament win since 2017, depriving the Bobcats of advancing further in the tournament.  But the Bobcats were a very good team in 2022-23.  They finished with a 25-10 record straight up. They finished 18-10 Against The Spread.
