Slots Reign in Montana

With more than 140 licensed casinos in Montana, the gambling at these casinos is somewhat limited. But what is interesting about Montana is that slot machines are found everywhere. As one report put it, the “casinos are quite small, a lot like convenience stores with slot machines in the back.” These “casinos,” for lack of a better word, are located across the state and some mainly offer slots, poker, and electronic table games. Glacier Peaks Casino & Bingo is the largest casino in Montana, offering 400 slot machines and table games. Other notable casinos include Silver Wolf Casino and Little Big Horn Casino, offering 100 slot machines but no table games. All this sounds quite contradictory. One should also note that credit gambling is prohibited, while debit gambling is not. Moreover, in 2005, Montana deemed online gambling as illegal.
