Having worked towards the launch of sports betting since May 2019, gaming solutions supplier and operator INTRALOT has congratulated the Montana Lottery following its successful Sports Bet Montana launch. 

Byron Boothe, INTRALOT US Interim CEO, stated: “It’s an exciting time for the Montana Lottery. With the introduction of legalized sports wagering under the Lottery, INTRALOT will leverage its world-class resources and technology to provide the best-possible sports betting experience for Montanans. 

“Most importantly, we are excited to provide the Montana Lottery with a complete solution to maximize sports wagering revenues and return to the state’s general fund and to the school scholarship fund for science and technology learning”. 

Following the passing of the bill which brought sports wagering to Montana, the Montana Lottery began accepting applications for locations to obtain licenses in late 2019 while it began work on placing the regulatory framework and games rules that ensure responsible play in conjunction with a competitive content. 

The partnership has seen the supplier deploy its INTRALOT Orion sports betting platform in Montana to facilitate operation of the Lottery’s sports wagering self-service terminals and mobile sports wagering offering. 

Angela Wong, Director of the Montana Lottery, commented: “The Montana Lottery, together with our partner INTRALOT, worked hard to build a sports betting product Montanans would support. Our lottery supports our state and helps our retailers build successful businesses, all while giving Montanans winning experiences. We’re excited to see Sports Bet Montana take off.”

Moreover,  INTRALOT also provides a complete suite of services to the Montana Lottery including Managed Trading and Marketing Services (MTMS) and Customer Support (CS). 

Dr Chris Dimitriadis, INTRALOT Group CEO, concluded: “INTRALOT has technology innovation at the center of its strategy and is powered by a portfolio of next- generation solutions designed to deliver unparalleled and engaging player experiences while driving operational efficiencies for our lottery and gaming customers.

“I am looking forward to the successful operation of the new sports betting solution in Montana that will help the Lottery attract a new demographic of players and maximize sales growth.”
