TAKE ACTION – MONTANA
Did You Know Montana is One of Only Five States That Prohibits Fantasy Sports?
That’s right! Hundreds of thousands of Montana residents love playing fantasy sports, but collecting winnings in fantasy sports contests is illegal under Montana law. That means that hundreds of thousands are breaking the law right now in Big Sky Country. In fact, Montana is one of only five states that deny its residents the right to play fantasy sports. Fantasy sports are considered a game of skill under federal law, and 45 states agree, but not Montana.
During the 2015 session, the House considered HB 181 which would have classified fantasy sports as a game of skill. However, the bill was tabled in committee and is dead for the current legislative session.
