HELENA — Rep. Wylie Galt, R-Martinsdale, said generating revenue for the state can be as simple as counting to 21, meaning, playing blackjack.  House Bill 578 would legalize the card game, for both tabletop and video play.  The bill also allocates a $500 tax on each blackjack table to the state’s Department of Justice and a state special revenue account — $100 going to the DOJ, and $400 to the account.  … CLICK HERE FOR FULL ARTICLE

Some history of gambling in Montana can be found at the Montana Department of Justice site.  From their site:

The Montana Legislature has authorized limited legal gambling in Montana. Poker, keno, bingo, and video line gambling machines are legal with a maximum $2 bet and $800 payout. Legal live games include: raffles, bingo, keno, panguingue, poker and shake-a-day. Sports pools, fantasy sports leagues and sports tab games are also legal. These are non-banking games in which players bet against and settle with each other rather than betting against and settling with the house.

The legal age for gambling in Montana is 18, with the exception of raffles conducted by churches, schools, charitable and nonprofit organizations. Children under 18 years old may participate in these.  LINK
