Sweepstakes Casinos Exiting Montana

The Wild West world of sweepstakes casinos just got a little less wild as popular sites like Pulsz, Global Poker, LuckyLand Slots, and Chumba exit the Montana market.

For years, these social online casinos have been taking advantage of sweepstakes laws in states across the US to effectively offer real money casino games without a license and in places where online gambling is prohibited.

To combat these gaming sites, a few states, like Michigan and Washington, have created specific laws to ban sweepstakes casinos. However, they still remain legal and operate in a gray area in 47 states.

Montana has not officially banned sweepstakes casinos just yet, but there is a pending law that is expected to pass. Certain sites like Chumba are front-running this law as they’ve already faced significant legal actions and are definitely in the crosshairs of the authorities.

Despite the regulatory uncertainty, many sweepstakes casinos, including Stake.us, continue to operate in The Treasure State, but the question is for how long?
