Steve Bullock, the Governor of Montana, has signed a bill to legalise sports betting in Montana.  As per the bill, mobile betting is now permitted in Montana.

Montana lawmakers actually gave Gov. Bullock two different sports betting bills from which to choose. The one that he signed into law gives the Montana Lottery full control over all wagering. The one he vetoed would have been more of a free-market system that allowed multiple sportsbooks to operate in the state.

Sports betting supporters wanted the governor to sign both bills to create more competition, but he decided against it, saying, “If, in two years, the market can tolerate more entrants, then I fully expect the legislature will revisit whether a second model is prudent for our state.”
